    Good pit stop and a pool!

    visited on our road trip - we found a few friendly dogs off leash outside the dog area and none inside

    Muddy and sloppy but big

    Its a bit hidden but does have its own parking area, not where the GPS send you tho. There are stone steps leading down to it so it is not very accessible in that regard. there might be alternate ways of approaching, but on dirt paths.
    There is an area for small dogs and one for large dogs. It has a covered picnic table and a hose for water. It is located on a slope and gets pretty muddy on a rainy day, but has plenty of space for your dog to run.
    The area around it is very spacious too, with even more space for your dog to roam. Its quite common to see other people with off-leash dogs in these areas and in the Chimborazo park, so a word of warning there, most of them are pretty well behaved but its aways good to give them some space.

    A lot of dirt and on a slope. Isn't really a pleasant place to hang out. It's somewhat hidden and there is no great view of anything. Seems like an afterthought of a dog park.

    Fenced in, but that's about all

    An unexceptional dog park. It does have fenced in areas, a covered picnic table and a hose for filling a bowl. That's about it. The area is just hard packed dirt and it's a very sloping lot. I would imagine it's very muddy when wet. If you need to run your dog you can accomplish that here but it's nothing to write home about. We saw many people walking dogs in the area and no one but us visitors seemed to bother with the dog park. It's also really far from the GPS location given. Use the map I provided in the photos section instead. The park itself seems lovely, it's too bad they can't make the dog area a little more pleasant.

    Don't follow GPS

    Great dog park on the other side of the estate. The gps had us park on the far end. It was a beautiful walk just very far. Ask the locals how do get here so you can park closer. There were dog walkers everywhere who knew where this was. Bring your own bags and water. A bit of green deep in the city!

    Nice location and nice park.

    There were a lot of off leash dogs around the park but everyone that we encountered was really well behaved. Our Pomeranian can get nervous if a big dog comes charging at her but we had no issues. The dog park is hilly , open , and has a lot of space to run. Our Pom loved it.

    Nice size, fenced park

    It was hard to find but eventually went around the park and saw the big sign near the bottom of the hill. Nothing fancy, but a nice rest stop. Walked around outside the fenced sections too, large grassy area, our dog loved it.

    I have two dogs and they have a great time at this park everytime we go. We like this park the most because the dogs are able to run freely off the leash in a large space. Also this park has a large pool to keep the dogs cool as well as water bowls. However we have ran into 1 dog that was aggressive but we haven't seen that dog since the incident but we still attend this dog park regularly

    Hard to find

    When we put the address in for this park it took us to a children's play area. The dog park is actually located on the 3600 block of Grace Street. The park was a good size but no other dogs. The cool down spots were a bit muddy/dirty but watering spots were great.
