    Pond is full of algal blooms- not safe for Fido

    We went to Heart pond because it seemed dog friendly and had nice pictures on the website. Unfortunately, the pond is full of algal blooms deemed unsafe by the Health Department. There is a huge sign post indicating that the water is unsafe for swimming. The area also has a strange odor. We spent less than five mins there.

    Walk, run, swim doggy fun!

    Great place to bring your dog for a leashed walk on the bike path from the pond parking lot. The bike path does not do a circle around the pond. Great for a sunny day walk as the trees have plenty of growth so lots of shade for your furry friend. Small beach area great for dogs swimming and fetching a stick. Just be mindful beach is fairly small and shared by kids, families and potentially other dogs. Also, there is a dock for fishing and launching a SUP or kayak. I’ll go back.
