- KatieMore than a year agoVery nice park
Lots of space for dogs to run. Sometimes people bring their small dogs in the big dog area so if your dog has a high prey drive be aware. Luckily there are very few blind spots if your dog likes to be aloof so you can still keep an eye on him. The vast majority of people watch their dogs pretty closely and will step in if anyone is getting too rough or overwhelmed. Lots of water available and shady seating. People are also quick to pick up after their dogs so that's a huge plus. There is also a "warm up" area for the big dogs if you or your buddy is nervous going in. Really great feature if you're not sure how your dog will handle all of the activity. There is a porta-potty in the parking lot. Overall this is a great park and my dog is always exhausted by the end of our visit.
- JerryMore than a year agoGood Park, Bad Vibe
This park has wonderful, large spaces for both large and small dogs. But every time we visited we encountered aggressive dogs and unpleasant owners. Also, many owners do not pick up after their dogs making for some unpleasant surprises. Too bad, because this could be a terrific place for your pooch.

Wonderful off leash park with plenty of shade and water bowls!
- SusanMore than a year agoNice stop while traveling
The day we stopped there were many dogs, but this area was big enough to handle the number. The owners that we encountered were very attentive and interactive with their own dogs and those of others. Everyone seemed to want the socializing to work well, and it did. Our pup got some much needed exercise and time with some other pups while we were traveling. This was the biggest dog park that we have been to with separate areas for large and small dogs, although there were many small dogs in the large dog area. It was clean and well maintained. I recommend this park for travelers.
- TuckerMore than a year agoGreat!!
The only down side to this park is that there are not many trees in the big dog area. This could easily be fixed though. The space is huge and well kept, there are bags and water available and plenty of random balls laying around for the dogs to grab. Great place and look forward to returning soon!
- GlennMore than a year agoNot bad
Depends on when you go, could be lots of dogs. It does have an agility training area, a small pool someone left for the dogs, and a large area to run. Sometimes there can be aggressive dogs there.
- RuthMore than a year agoJust OK
This park is well shaded and has big and small dog areas. The park is in need of some heavy maintenance but there is a sign that says it is closed every Tuesday until further notice for maintenance so may be it will get better
