    This is for the dog park on 7th Ave; A Pet's Own Place.
    This was the first time I have been here with my two small dogs, I've driven by but never really paid attention til now. The other reviews must be from when the park was not divided in two. It now has a small (under 25lbs) and large (over 25lbs) sides. Both sides are fenced in on all four sides. It is really nice it is located right beside a stream and trees that block the wind. Both areas allow for my dogs to run and have a great time. I am glad that there are two sides for the different sized dogs. My guess is that when it was first built it was not divided.

    Read the reviews for this park and came away a little disappointed. I just came back form CT where I visited a dog park for the first time with my humane society special "Henry". They had two spaces side by side one for small dogs under 25 pounds and the other side for big digs, each about two acres. this park was under Parks & Recreation and the representative who happen to be there that day was very attentive to the concerns form dog owners, something to with drainage, he assured then it would be resolved asap. Park was fenced and of course divided all around. I plan on visiting Hendersonville in the near future and have Henry form his own opinion. I am sure its a wonderful space.

    Why are these reviews not dated?

    August 2014 I want to take my dog to a place where she can safely run, but these reviews have me a bit nervous. Sure wish I knew how recent/old they were...

    Enjoyed this Park!

    We thoroughly enjoyed this park. The grassy area is HUGE, and the other dogs and their owners were very friendly. Our dogs particularly enjoyed the stream. I would be willing to donate toward fencing the back side of the park in.

    Nice spot

    Others must have had bad luck but when I went today there were only very nice dogs. The fencing is adequate unless you have a real freedom runner - there are no busy roads nearby.

    I found it very difficult to find this place. You have to drive into Jackson Park, and look for a gravel road near a walking bridge and turn into it.

    These GPS coordinates should take you there: N35°19.111' W082°26.981'

    not really great

    I think they city likes to brag about having a "dog park" and the present city council members and Mayor Volk are uncommitted to improving this, as evidenced by all the ratings. Mayor Volk has stated that chaining of dogs 24/7 365 days a year is not cruel or abusive. It is, we hope for a change--Ron Stephens for Mayor !!! Our city council represent us the people, remember to remind them of your concerns.

    Ask Owners of Agressive Dogs To Leave The Park

    In this region none of the dog parks has attendants to monitor/supervise use, except one private pay per visit. Whether they are "official", county/state/city all are "Use At Your Own Risk." Given the inherent nature of all dog parks common sense prevails. If you aren't willing to accept the risk, don't come. Dog fights happen at all dog parks, supervised or not. Less fights would occur if more people would let owners of aggressive dogs know "We Don't Tolerate Aggressive Dogs In Our Park " So if you don't speak up, nothing will change. Be proactive to make this a better park for all.

    This Is A Great Dog Park

    PLEASE TAKE COMPLAINTS TO AN APPROPRIATE BLOG. Mentioning dogs by name is rude and inconsiderate. I've been coming to this land even before it was a dog park and have seen many changes during that time. In the beginning there were only a few regulars and rarely saw aggressive dogs. As word got out that this was a park dog fights occurred often, not from regulars but from new comers who didn't respect the PRIVILEGE of having a dog park. These people were run off when possible. But some fights continue to this day which is an unfortunate fact with all dog parks. This park is unregulated with no enforceable rules to eliminate problem dogs. ON A POSITIVE NOTE: the park is very clean; most people are friendly and considerate; it isn't fenced but has a natural border of creeks and railway trestle; the dogs can play in the creeks; the area is approx 5 acres of mowed grass in good condition; a pavilion with concrete floor and picnic table and chairs; bring your own water and potty bags; leave toddlers at home as this is a safety concern!; dogs of all ages and sizes as well as different levels of socialization. Be considerate of others, Play nice, take out what you bring in (trash and potty), and we'll all have a great Dog Park to enjoy. See you there.

    Risky and Unregulated

    I saw the attacked 5 month old cocker spaniel the same day as linda. Terrible what happened to a puppy. The attacker dogs (Otis) owner has yet to come forward. I understand Otis to be a pit mix. I witnessed an attack of another small dog also by a pit mix. Coincidence? My opinion it Is not a coincidence. Other stories i have heard always involve a pit or pit mix. Without regulations and areas for different size dogs we ar all at risk of a vicious attack. Especially when a pit/mix is present ,in my opinion.
    If people were held responsible, it could weed out the agressive dogs. Until a time when the park is regulated, I suppose we are all assuming some risk. Nice place, great people, so what a shame it is not much safer for all to enjoy.
    PS. I wonder if some of these dogs are even vaccinated.

    another attack

    Was at the dog park yesterday and a big dog attacked and sweet puppy,and she bought it back down yesterday so it wouldn't be scared everywhere she went. The wound was really bad and cost her alot of money and she doesn't even know the guys name that his dog did this. I just don't understand why someone would bring a dog down there that would do this. He should have to pay for this.Thats 3 people I've talk to that this has happen before.I'm not sure I'll be going down again and it's a shame because all the people are nice

    hendersonville dog park

    I've been there 5 times and only have seen one small dog there and the rest are big dogs.Had 2 people tell me their small dogs have been picked up by the big dogs. Perfect place for a dog park but it would be nice to have a fenced in area for small and big dogs so everyone can play without having to worry.

    Official or Not?

    If you call Parks & Rec office, they give directions, and the City picks up trash and mows.

    Mills River park may be open in early 2012, smaller area but completely fenced with size specific areas.

    Wonderful large area

    Several acres of open field gives everyone plenty of room. Have been going 3x per week for months with no issues. Plenty of dog savvy regulars. Take your own poop bags, and if you can- a gallon of water to the pavilion area.

  • More than one year ago.

    This park is only fenced on one side. Mud Creek, railroad trestle and swamp land form other three boundaries. Due to great people that use this park it is clean. Needs water supply and fences.

    ok ... BUT

    It would be nice if this was really run buy someone! I had 4 pitbull dogs team up on my puppy today. From what I hear ... this is NOT an offical dog park! There are no rules or anyone to monator problems or issues!
