    Always empty & padlocked

    Somewhat small area even for the large dog section vs the small dog section. You have to fully drive in to see if anyone is there, you can't see how empty or crowded it is from the main street and it takes about a minute to drive down the road to the parking lot.

    Its proximity to the trails and other parks would be great..... if anyone else was ever here. The 2-3x I've tried to swing by it's been completely empty so I end up going to Wayne friends & family park instead. Oh, they literally PADLOCK the gate so you have to be registered to have access. I understand the requirement to register, but I just personally think that's excessive. Maybe people would be more inclined to register if they were able to try it first, and also it's just a hassle to open a padlock when walking a dog and holding other items in the other hand.
