    Yet another disappointing dog run

    This one is better than Greer and Hoover, far better, but it's not great at all. Needs an update. Grass worn down and overall, not big enough. Is it true it was built in the 50's ? What's wrong with Palo Alto updating !?

    No area for small dogs

    It is a nice park, but does not have a separate place for small dogs.

    Great Park!

    The dog park is pretty large and all dogs use it no matter what their size. This is a nice change for us, I can't speak for other small dogs, but Freckles likes playing with both large and small dogs...there's no discrimination with him! ;-) Half the park is grass and the other half is the sand/gravel surface. It's fully enclosed with a double gate for the escapes! There are two picnic tables, a handful of park benches, and a few individual chairs for you to choose from. There aren't any sunshades, like Shoreline, but I've been here in the direct sunshine and there are enough trees around that you can find some shade if you need it! There are a *load* of balls and Frisbees available to play with while you are here, which is great if you have a ball hog like Freckles, along with a water hose and bowls for the pups!

    Everyone that we've come in contact with, and there have been quite a few, have been nothing but friendly, pleasant, talkative, and great with the dogs...their dogs have also been incredibly friendly and well-behaved as well!

    The only problem I've had with the park is my initial "location" issue...it took forever for me to try and find it the first time I came! I parked in the parking lot off of Meadow Drive and then proceeded to walk around and around trying to see it; maybe it was just me, but you really can't see the dog area from the main park! Needless to say, after I went there the first day, I saw that there is a parking lot next door to the dog area (at the back of the school off Charleston Road)...you can only park there after school hours, but it is incredibly convenient if you do!

    Final thoughts: Great park, nice people, wonderful dogs...check it out!
