    We're here most every morning

    Tuukka & I have enjoyed morning walks on the trails and the coast for about a year. Most of the other pups are friendly. Aggressive pups off leash in the trails, and garbage left by rude and lazy people are the only issues. We see deer, pick wild berries, and enjoy our time.
    *Please don't bag your dog's poop and leave it; the plastic bag just adds to the problem.

    Great place to bring your pooch

    I go to Goddard at least once a week with my brood, they love it. Spacious and lots of places to walk the trails are nice but so are the expansive feilds for a game of catch

    Great Time Spent

    Visited Goddard Park on a weekday in mid-May. There were no admission fees & they had a farmers market that sold flowers, fresh eggs & vegetables etc. We went down to the water & met some other dogs playing on the beach where my Bella had a great time. Note: There was a sign that said no dogs on the beach, but I assumed that was in-season. I was also told by a park employee that is was OK on a weekday.
