Avoid certain times, like 9 am till 11 am. There's a gaggle of hags that come to NOT watch their dogs. When we came with our 50 lb pit a lady with a 60lb puppy refused to get her LARGER but younger dog off my dog. She kept yelling "he's just a puppy" as if that released her from her responsibility of managing him. We had to pick our dog up and leave, kicking her dog out of the way the whole way since she flat out refused (with 4 of her screaming biddy old friends) to come get her dog. Its a huge park, we tried to move to other corners, e.t.c but when grown adults treat the place like a drop off daycare. Avoid.

The park itself is great: big shade trees, plenty of seating areas, a water fountain with a bowl fountain for the dogs and several regular metal bowls as well. It's got the traditional big and small areas, both with agility equipment and provided waste bags.
Some of the owners, however, are not so great. I have a large GSD and she was attacked a couple of times (by smaller dogs too) and the owners were awful about it. There's one lady who shows up frequently with her smallish dogs and just lets them bark the entire time.
It's a good park but you have to be careful.

This park is wonderful. The enclosures are large with benches for the humans and fun obstacles for the dogs. They have water fountains for dogs and humans too. The only downside is the owners that sometimes bring dogs to this park. Most people are great, but there have been several times where owners have brought aggressive dogs (even dogs with muzzles on) or have just straight up not paid attention to their dog the whole time they were here. Dog parks are not dog sitting services.
- KathleenMore than a year agoFirst time to the dog park
This was our first time to the dog park with my two little guys. They really enjoyed themselves although they were the only dogs there. We worked with them on the agility equipment and they were doing great, they picked up the tunnel and the jump with no problem. My father came with us and enjoyed the hour in the shade on the bench, there was also a table he could have sat at. Although it was quite warm out the shade was wonderful. The only drawback was that the water was not working, however I had brought ice water for the dogs just in case. I do hope that they get that fixed soon. The entire park is wonderful, green with a lot of shade. I really recommend it.
