    dog park

    12-14 large dogs having a blast. Plenty of water, shade, seats for the people. Large lawn. Sturdy fences and entry gates keep dogs safe. Large and small dogs have separate areas. Poop bags in each corner.

    My dog's fav

    Have always had positive experiences here. Plenty of dogs to play with. The separation of small and large dog is nice, my dog tends to playva little rough so fortunatly for me she can generally find a buddy to wear her out. Most owners here a very knowledgable about their dogs and keep an eye out on them. What I think I liked best about this park was meeting the other owners most I have no idea what their names are but I know their dogs name, this says to me that the people here are here for their dogs and thats what this place is about. Will always enjoy my dog taking here.

    Good at Times

    Definite heavy use in some areas that can get muddy. There are definite regulars, some good and some not so great. My puppy doesn't play at rough and mouthy as others so I guess that counters in my review

    Looks like a nice area but the park was closed for "overseeding" which looked like sod to me. I am sure they do this every Oct. to Nov. Noticed nice benches/tables, shade areas, trash cans and separate areas for small dogs. Would love to hung out there, instead I let my dogs run off-leash on the 3 baseball diamonds nearby. We had just traveled from Monterey, CA and they really needed to run free. Supplied photos for you to see that it is a nice place when open.

    This park is larger than some of the others in Palm Desert. There are plenty of well behaved dogs to play with and responsible owners. If you come at the same time of day there are lots of regulars. Easy access from 111 and good parking. The large dog area gets heavy use so the grass is worn to dirt in many areas but it is a great little park.
