- JermsMore than a year agoIt's decent.
It's a dog park, so basically a savior to my sanity as my GSD can run her butt off with other dogs instead of me ;-)
The good: The facilities are split between large and small dogs, on the 'large' side it's nicely sized, has lots of trees and benches, an aging agility course, two water stations, and bathrooms for the owners.
The bads: You have to walk up and around a decent hill to get inside, not good for the elderly or those with disabilities. After a rain it can get real muddy and dog 'bombs' are prevalent. Come fall they shutoff the water to the dog bowls but leave the main faucets turned on, which usually means the pups drink out of nasty pool water.
As another reviewer had noted I have seen a lot of aggressive dogs here. 50% of the time I'm cautious of going in with my pup but even then everything is usually alright. I've seen some scuffles though, and if I see huskies I usually turn for a trail instead as they always seem to be the instigator (not knocking the breed, just observances from multiple huskies picking on my puppy).
All in all it's not a bad park but it's in need of some repairs and owner responsibility to control their dogs and their messes. I'll continue to go back as it's closest to my house, but if you're on the East side of town or don't mind driving a bit further then Otto Armleder is hands-down a better dog park.

I have a hard time blaming a dog for being aggressive because most of the time that is a product of their upbringing so my complaint is with the owners. I used to go to this park with my English Mastiff but after so many fights I began to fear for her safety as well as my own. Most people don't pay attention to their dogs so when things start to get rowdy (as they often do with multiple dogs together) no action is taken to prevent fighting. I witnessed a pit bull completely tear up a shepherd puppy and the shepherd's owner was the only human involved. The pit's owner was no where to be found. I could see how the one other review of this place could be incredibly misleading to people looking for a good dog park given that it received 5 bones. Do not bring your dog here unless you are 100% confident it stick by your side your entire time there.

This is the greatest thing for the dogs in a very long time. Plenty of room to romp and play. Featuring big dog and small dog sides. Plenty of water and human facilities. Socialize you pup and receive great benefits from watching the expend energy.
