    A Favorite

    Towered by giant trees, this natural park has benches made from tree stumps, lots of shade and a cool water crank for fresh water.

    Small & all dirt. Disappointed.

    Considering how large Overton Park is, this is a small dog park. The "larger" side was closed for renovations, which looked like it was just new wood chips. No real grass. No open areas for big dogs to run around. It was a dry day, so us and our dog are covered in dirt. It would be all mud if it was wet

    Great fun

    Traveling cross country took our bulldog for some off leash playtime, what a great park! Was a little muddy from weather but the other dogs and people were super sweet. Would definitely recommend a stop here if you’re on the road with a pup.

    great park , gloomy day

    Would've given more bones but the park ground was super saturated and had lots of flooded areas ..small dog area mostly a big mud puddle . No other dogs were there as it had just finished raining ... We were passing through on our way to Nashville , would love to

    visit on a drier day.

    many dogs

    This is a great park for very social and playful dogs!!! so many people and dogs. my only complaint is is that there arent any off-leash trails or swimming areas.

    Love this park!

    I take my greyhound here. Almost the whole area is shaded. There is a water fountain. Great people and sweet dogs :)
