    Creek swim spot

    Great place to get in the creek easy with your pup, but have to watch for boaters/kayakers. Parking lot is very close so have to watch your pups carefully.

    NOT a Dog Spot

    It is a boat launch with easy access to the creek but there is nothing for dogs. There is a large flat open grass area near the front but not fenced in so dogs may roam near the busy streets. There are no signs indicating this is a Dog spot either.

    not much happening

    Location is nice but really not much to see or do unless we missed something. Couldn’t find any trail but seems ok for boat launch or fishing. Dogs weren’t impressed
