    Our Dog’s Favorite Place

    We take our dog here several times a week. He loves it - there is lots of room for him to run and play with other dogs. People here tend to be social too. Lots of places to sit, lots of bags available if you forget yours, and they’re are toys to throw if your dog likes to fetch. There is shade which makes it a little cooler in the summer. Highly recommend.

    Don't go here

    The owners are rude and the dogs are too. It's dirty and smelly. After three visits and three incidents, we're done.

    We love it!

    We take our chocolate lab mix here every evening. Plenty of space to run free and play with other dogs. There is an area for smaller dogs and a really great human community.

    Very Disappointed

    I was anxious to visit the park but left disappointed. The entry is so uninviting. Recycling trash overflowing, overgrown weeds. Not inviting at all. The park itself is better except the stones make it hard on the dog's paws. Do like the brick seating area and the size of the park. Plenty of shade and running water. I would not go back.

    Shady park with lots of doggie friends

    We bring our dog to this park almost every day. Our dog has a great time, and the other owners are usually very friendly and will start conversation. Almost no one uses the small dog enclosure, so it's great for dogs getting used to the park. I do wish more aggressive dog owners would utilize this area more, though. Also, one recommendation would be that the park rules should ban intact male dogs. Sometimes there are intact males in the park and it can make the other dogs snap and growl.

    Overall the park is great with plenty of shade and picnic tables, benches, agility course, water hose/bowls and tubs, and extra bags. Sunny and shady areas, but no grass.

    Aggressive dogs

    Aggressive dogs are becoming a problem. Lately one in particular will let his dog run while he sits on his smart phone. When he is asked to control his dog he becomes verbally abusive to any one in the park.

    At first it was really great there but lately there has been an increase of aggressive dogs, and then you have owners not taking responsibilty while my dog is BLEEDING. Trying to put the blame on my dog. It'd be nicer if people could control their animals.

    Hamden Dog Park

    Have been to this park several times. It is completely fenced and has shade and picnic tables. Bring your own water but bowls are there. It is treed but is all grave. No grass. Pleanty of bags provided.
