Julien Marx Dog Park at Medal of Honor Park
- KaitlynOct. 3, 2021Nice Park! Needs someone monitoring....
We visited the small dog area and it was super nice! Only problem… a woman decided to bring her large dog into the small dog area and he bit and attacked our little dog… this is VERY bad.. our dog is just a puppy.. NO big dogs should be in the small dog area. They are separate for a reason. Someone should really be monitoring this area with cameras or a person.

My 2 dogs love coming here and running in a large area. The park is split into two areas. One side is for small dogs and the other is for medium/large dogs. Poop bags and trash cans are available. There is a 3 tiered fountain that has a water station at 3 different heights to accommodate both dogs and humans. There are pathways you can walk your dogs leashed too.

Had a great time playing fetch! Benches for resting time and a nice watering hole. Separate fenced in areas for small and large dogs. We enjoyed and will be back when we return to the area!
- DarrenMore than a year agoPerfect for dogs
A great place to take your dogs with plenty of space for them to run free and just be dogs.The double gated enclosure is also another great feature as well as the separate areas for large and small dogs.
The only improvement I would like to see would be maybe three or four more benches along the back perimeter fencing of the small dog enclosure so us old codgers have a place to sit while our little fur buddies run amok.
- RebekahMore than a year agoGreat spot for your pooch!
This is a beautiful and spacious park! It doesn't feel overcrowded at all. The park itself is separated into two, one for small dogs and one for large dogs. I loved that my dog could run around without feeling restricted!
My only problems are that there are no trashcans inside the park. You have to leave the park to throw away poopbags. There was also trash and plastic around the fountain area. There is enough room to where they could have a wading pool for water-loving dogs! I saw a lot of dogs playing in mud puddles. I didn't see much "dog park etiquette" either. The secondary gates were left open or some people would not call their dogs on bad actions. Maybe I'm just nit-picky.
I feel like this park has a lot of potential! Hopefully in the future they will make changes to please more dogs and owners alike!
- RBMore than a year agoGreat Dog Park
They just built this dog park I believe last year. It is very clean, has enough room for all of the dogs on each side, big and small. It is double gated so if a dog gets out, it's trapped and doesn't escape. There's a lot of random abandoned balls so if you forgot a toy, fido won't be bored. The only thing I don't like, is that there's only one trash can. You have to either leave the park, or squeeze your hand through a hole in the gate to drop off your doggy bag. Despite that, there's two stands, one on each side of the park, with doggy bags to clean up after your dog. There's even a fountain with a lower fountain on the ground for the doggies. I will warn you, there's tons of squirrels here. Don't be surprised if your dog disappears in a split second.
- AmandaMore than a year agoBeautiful park
Made a stop here for a stretch break on our holiday cross country trip. This is in a nice community park area. Two nice sized areas for large and small dogs. Lots of pines, benches, and a water fountain. It had rained earlier so was a little soggy for us, but the dogs still had a nice break.
- CindyMore than a year agoVery well thought out.
This is a fairly new dog park is very well thought out. There are two doubled enclosures, one for small dogs and one for large dogs.
The double enclosure is extra security for escapees who manage to bound out the gate and they will find that they can't get out the second gate because they've been caught.
The perimeter fences are 10 feet chain link. I believe it's 10 feet, but it may only be 8 feet. The enclosures are very large, quite wooded and immensely shaded, which is a serious plus in this Mobile humid summer heat.
There are two things that would make this the perfect dog park:
1. There needs to be a wading pool for water loving dogs.
2. There are not enough trash cans. There is only one can (that I can remember seeing) and that is a nuisance.
All in all though it's a great park and is great fun.
