Recently moved to the area and discovered this park. I love how large it is with varying areas for my pups to run and play. The water spigot is particularly helpful on these hot summer days.
- NickyMore than a year agoGreat space! But BEWARE of negligent owners
A few fenced in spaces with lots of shade, grassy areas, sandy areas, and plenty of water. We have had many GREAT experiences there with wonderful dogs and owners, but we've also had a couple horrible experiences.
The last time we went, one energetic dog got into several separate fights with a few dogs - my dog included - and the owner paid little attention. Dogs often playfully fight, but this dog clearly hadn't been trained to take cues of when he had gone too far (not the poor dog's fault!). After he made my dog bleed, I moved my dog from that enclosure to the one next door, and a few minutes later, that same dog jumped on a toddler and made her cry. The owner didn't apologize, but he did finally start paying attention to his dog.
I have a couple friends who also have stories about negligent owners at Piney Wood. This is a great space for dogs and as I mentioned, we've had great experiences here! But if you choose to go, keep an eye on your dog, and perhaps bring an air spray can in case another negligent owner brings their poorly trained dog around.

This was the best thing my mom ever got me. It's only $17 a year to become a member of the DPR dog parks and it's the best money you can spend for your dog. This park has 3 areas for dogs of all sizes. The owners and the dogs who come here are so nice and I have made so many friends here.
