Nice dog park with separate areas for big and small dogs. Parking, playground, picnic shelter, and restrooms. Also a nice 4-mile sidewalk along the river to walk the dogs.

    To small for a large dog

    This dog park needs many improvements. The “big dog” area chosen is far to small. Perhaps considerations could be made to create a significantly larger dog park further away from the city center. There is a great deal of land that could be developed for such a park. Owners of “Larger” dogs and there are many of them, would love to have a large area at least 20-30 acres where they could let their dogs “off-leash” and walk on trails. I understand the “big-bear-park” is relatively new but unfortunately these types of parks are limited in size due their location in the city (i.e. property costs/expenses). I think many large dog owners and even small dog owners would gladly give donations to see such a park created in the future. I would note”Heritage Dog Park” in Olathe, KS as one that sets the example.

    excellent spot

    Beautiful right by the river. A welcome relief to be able to have the dogs off leash!
