    Not bad, could be better

    We have been in search of a good dog park for our chocolate lab. This park was open, plenty of space to run, plenty of trash cans for poop. However, because it's a new park the trees are tiny and offer very little shade. There are no benches or any shade for the humans. It's clean, new, great location, and has a lot of potential... But not quite there yet.

    NEW Dog Park at Deem Hills

    Deem Hills recently (9/11/2015) opened a brand new fenced, almost 2-acre, off-leash dog park w/ 2 separate sides for large and small dogs. Each area is grass in the middle surrounded by sandy gravel and small trees. It will be even nicer in a few yrs, when the trees get bigger. And if they would put some benches in there for the humans, I would give it 5 bones, instead of 4.
