    This isn't a dog park....

    Contrary to the other reviews on this page, Goodale Park is not a dog park nor does it have a dog park. Goodale is literally just a park located near downtown. There are great walking paths for exercising your dog but there is not a dedicated dog park. I believe most of these reviews are for Godown Dog Park (they seem to describe it) which is north of Goodale. If you're looking for an actual dog park, don't come to Goodale since it's just a normal park for people too.

    Great place!

    This is a very large dog park and usually has well-socialized dogs with attentive owners. It's a great place for an active dog to run around and burn energy. It can get extremely muddy so don't wear nice shoes and make sure to take a towel for the pup's ride home. It's also not well lit after dark. Otherwise, best dog park in central Cbus!

    great park for your dog

    I travel with my dog to visit family in Ohio and this is a great, well maintained park. It has a paved sidewalk and is huge. Always lots of friendly dogs and people for my dog to play with. Love it

    dog park portion not open right now

    So I found out that the dog park is actually across the street from the main part of the park. Also, the dog park has been closed and it was still closed as of 6/4/15. A dog owner i met in the park told me that it's supposed to be open this week, so be aware. The main park side however was beautiful and is great for a stroll with the pooch.

    Awesome Park

    Two gated areas are made available for either small or large dogs. Having a medium sized dog, I've been able to comfortably / safely visit either side. Each of the areas can be accessed via two "man-trap" entrances. There's a fountain and some hoses located at the west side of the park outside the fenced-in area. Also, throughout the park, there are waste bags available if you happen to forget to bring your own.

    Be warned, the large dog area can get muddy at times depending on the precipitation.

    Dog owners who frequent this park tend to be very responsible and friendly. There is no real lighting so it could get dark quick, especially during the winter months.
