    Maybe we came at the wrong time

    the park looked beautiful but the area seemed dodgy. 3pm on a Monday is apparently not the best time to be here? feels like maybe it is the wrong side of the highway? we ended up having a walk over @ the Clinton Library.

    Only Large Dog Park Operational

    We were there this week as a stop driving cross country. The park was empty, most likely because it was an excruciatingly hot day. FYI for small dog owners: whole sections of the small dog park fence are broken/open, so that area is unusable. We were able to run our toy dogs in the large dog area because we were alone. It's a nice park, with a bit of shade, clean and there were running bubblers of water.

    Great park in NLR

    This park is well maintained and has lush grass. Great for pups to run around. All guests that we encountered had well mannered pups and seemed to keep an eye on their dogs.

    Nice Stop while visiting

    As we were driving through we stoped by after dark to let our dog stretch her legs. It was lit well enough. The park itself was fairly basic but worked well for our purpose. Being so close to the highway it made me nervous that the gates weren’t sturdier and the fence higher.

    Artistic Park For Dogs And Owners

    Not the biggest park, but hands down the nicest dog park artworks. Nice park across the street for kids under 10, who aren’t allowed in the dog park. Easy access from the street. Not too big, but enough space for most dogs to get up to full speed.

    Great Park!

    Nice large, clean fenced-in area with lots of exciting things to do and climb on; responsible owners. Recommend.

    Great Off the Highway Stop

    We make the long trip between Detroit and Austin several times a year. This public dog park is just off HW 30, a large fenced area, tubs for the dogs to get wet, poop bags, and drinking fountains. The other dog owners were welcoming and responsible with their pups. We will hit this park every time!

    Perfect road trip stop

    We stopped on our way from Nashville to Austin. It's right off the interstate so it was a perfect place to let the dogs get out and run around. Clean park, pretty area, responsible and respectful dog owners, awesome place to take a break from the car. It made our dogs very happy road trip companions!

    So happy with this park; not as many trees as others, but that means there is GRASS for the pups to run on. Even better now that they have added some rock benches. Our favorite place to take our two dogs.
