    Great Location

    The water stations are wonderful (and super thoughtful, as some water stations even have elevated bowls for larger dogs.) This place isn’t super crowded, so that’s a huge plus! Super clean and the trails are fantastic! we loved our visit here, and will be back soon!

    I also want to mention to any newbies: if you are headed to the off-leash area and are coming from the parking lot, grab one of the empty water containers left by the water fountain and bring one in with you. It seems that there is an courtesy system of bringing any empty water containers out with you, and refilling one on your way in. that way not one person is left to do all the work, in order to keep our fur baby’s happy and well hydrated.

    fun dog park

    This is a great place to come and let your dog run loose and play with other dogs. Open space, mud holes, water for dogs to drink and plenty of poop bags for the responsible dog owners who pick up after their dog. There are 99 percent decent and friendly people visiting this place. Of course there has to be someone who thinks the park is just for them and their dog. Lot's of the dogs run and greet each other, play and wrestle with a little growling. Nothing troublesome. It seems there has to be some nasty individual trying to tell everyone else what they should be doing with their dog at the park. It is an off leash dog park and inevitably you will run into one of these clowns. Other than the occasional moron, this place is great.
