Pets love the chance to run leash-free in this fenced dog park, which includes a separate area for smaller pets. The park can get muddy, so bring towels.

    Not safe for small dogs. Needs better Gates with no gaps and more shade.

    Was disappointed at my last visit. There used to be 2 areas for small dogs one of which has multiple trees for shade and a completely separate entry area for big dogs and small dogs. This is helpful since 1 of my Chihuahuas is terrified by big dogs (the other one loves any dog of any size). The usual size for large dogs is undergoing construction so now the big dogs are in the fenced area (sharing a fence) next to the small dog area. The current area for small dogs has ZERO shade. And since the fence is shared with the big dogs in only caused stress for my little guy. ALSO, the gates on the small dogs area have a gap large enough to allow dogs to escape! While I was there not only was my dog able to slip out of the gate but other small dogs did as well. I will not be able to take my puppers back until the original large dog area opens back up AND they fix the gate issues. It's just not safe for small dogs.

    Improved Since Last Review

    I found the small dog area to be fairly large! The whole area was grassy, plus a bench and a water fountain.

    Need to fill in the water hole.

    We take our dog to Hefflinger regularly but the last time he waded into the mud hole which was filled with water. He became stuck in the mud and I had to go in to pull him out. Then I had to be helped out by a bystander. The hole should either be filled in or a snow fence put up around it.

    Could be better

    My main complaint with Hefflinger is there is ZERO grass in this park. Its just a big dirt patch. I understand the ball fields there were built on a trash pile, but why cant we sod the area? Also the small dog area is extremely small as noted before. Tear that fence down and the little guys have just as much space. This is the closest park to me so I will continue to go there. I just wish it was better.

    Lots of Room for Big Dogs

    We had our 50 pound "Mutt" with us during spring break and we landed in Omaha NE. We stopped at this dog park as well as Hanscom Dog Park in Omaha. This park was great for location and space, but it was VERY muddy. There was not one blade of grass to be found in the "All Dogs" or "Big Dogs" sections. There were plenty of bags to clean up the "business", and the park was very clean. We were there during the "off" season so the water fountain was not on. There were a couple of chairs and benches placed through out the park which was nice. Not much shade yet, the trees were still kind of small. Fences were great and we loved the double gated entry. I appreciate the care and detail placed in making this park.

    Subdivided small dog side

    For several years our family enjoyed bringing our small dogs to Hefflinger. Now the small dog side of the park has been further subdivided. The dogs have so much less space to run. Our backyard is almost the same size. The last time we visited the double gates had dogs coming from both divisions making it difficult to get out of the first gate without dogs trying to go AWOL. The water fountain is only available to dogs in the lower section. This means the upper section dogs have to be taken to the lower section. Which brings the question why was the small dog side divided. I hope that the division is only temporary. However, it appears the cost of all of the extra fence is permenent.

    Great Place for Dogs to Run

    We recently traveled to Omaha with our 3 dogs. This park was fabulous! It is very large providing lots of room for running and playing. The park is comprised of several former baseball fields so there is little shade (trees have been planted but are still small) and you should bring your own water (there is a fountain but apparently it does not always work). There are separate areas for small and large dogs--all fenced with double gated entrances. We visited the park multiple times and there were always friendly dogs and people enjoying the park. Note that the google map of this location is a little off--google shows the park on "Old Maple"--it is actually on Maple at 112th.--just west of I-680.
