    Spacious and convenient location

    It’s spacious, shaded by trees, and they provide tennis balls, water bowls and poop bags. It’s double-gated for easy entry. I cleaned up about 6 poop piles from previous visitors, though.

    Smallish, but has shade

    Once you enter the park, hang a right until you get to the furthest parking. There are a couple of large tress providing shade. The park was clean. There was a poop bag dispenser, some water bowls and a few toys.

    No Consistency

    The facility is ultra convenient for dog owners in Bedminster and Green Knoll section of Bridgewater. Convenient is about the best thing here. The park is constantly muddy and the crowd has Aggressive dog owners looking to outsmart the next with a “my dog is better, smarter than yours” mentality. The tougher the dog wins his survival of the fittest contest here resulting in the submissive, friendly dogs are weeded out, or asked to leave. This is a park where a couple of regular “dog walkers” who label themselves the “best trainers” manipulate the territory. It’s highly competitive for no reason. The professional dog walkers are trying to hold their clients and many of the locals are posers or are truly lacking in integrity and human kindness. I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s not a happy, relaxed place on most days. 5% of the time a decent, mature group shows and it is on those rare occasions it makes me want to try again. It’s really a 2 bone park with an additional bone for being so conveniently located. The facility is disappointing as are 70% of the dog owners.
