    Great space

    Love bringing my guy here. It's wonderful there is no permit required and it's free. Water is accessible, but dog bags are hit and miss. The space used to be all grass, now there is a large patch of dirt from the dogs. It is probably difficult to maintain, however, it could stand some upkeep. The wooded area is large, and a well worn path the dogs like to run around. I've had great experiences with other owners being attentive to their dogs and minimal fights.

    Nice, but needs maintenance

    This is land donated by Emily Schweitzer who bred dogs in the kennel and lived in the adjacent home. The open area and trails through the wooded area are very muddy and there are no baggies or receptacles, so be prepared. There is a large dumpster at the end of the parking lot, but nothing in the fenced areas, so many people don't bother to pick up after their dogs. This isn't as nice as other dog parks in the area, but it's free and no permit is needed.

    summer fun

    Love bringing my dog here. The grass is back. In the spring it gets a little muddy. Nice fenced trail too if you wanted to take a little hike off leash. Reminder bring your bags to clean up your dogs business and a water bowl. They have water available.

    Needs to be kept up!

    I love going to this park. The only downfall is that when I first started to go, the first half of the park was a nice grassy area that was very welcoming. Now when you go, that area is nothing but dirt. That definitely makes it look run down and not kept up.
