    Beware of Foxtail here

    Although small, this park rarely has any other dogs in it so is near-perfect for solo-ball retrieving. The wall of shrubs overlooking the water may have a drop-off on the other side, so be careful. BUT- this dog park section of the larger park which is a little bit hard to find but should be delightful- EXCEPT- insanely, the dog park area was covered (Sept. 22) by the foxtail plant, with the full spiked heads on thousands of the plants. Its a tan colored grass-like weed covered with spikes! Worst possible plant to cover this area for dogs. The barbed seed heads of the foxtail plant can work their way into any part of your dog, from the nose to between the toes and inside the ears, eyes, and mouth. Especially in-between toes. The spikes can dig themselves directly into a patch of skin. The danger of foxtails goes beyond simple irritation. Because these tough seeds don't break down inside the body, an embedded foxtail can lead to serious infection for your dog. It can even lead to death if left untreated. The seeds can be hard to find in your dog's fur.
    Why is the dog-owner community (and mostly I run into locals there) allowing this, and how is the Parks Dept. so unaware? Don't write it off, as maybe they'll fix this, or it will be mowed when you visit. Then the spikes are removed temporarily.

    Great Little Dog Park

    First, I should mention that the dog park area is actually on Roosevelt and Hudson. GPS takes you to the opening of the actual park which is a little ways away. This dog park was perfect for my girl. I saw a lot of people say it was too small. I think it’s the perfect size. A lot of dog owners don’t control their dogs so I get anxiety going to a big dog park. This one is small enough to be able to get to your dog if something were to happen but large enough for them to run all around. It is also fully fenced but the fences are over taken by bushes which makes it feel nice and secluded. There’s two large benches to sit on with doggie bags available and a garbage can. I don’t think much else is needed for a dog park. An open field to run around and play with new friends is all you need. I thought this park was perfect!

    Agree - too small & run down

    Not the greatest dog park I've seen - agree with other reviewers that it's too small for our (medium-sized) dog, looks run down and overgrown with weeds, etc. I love to visit PT but I'm consistently disappointed in the state of and/or lack of good dog parks here ... I always end up leaving, reminded that other towns are way more dog friendly (so maybe I should go spend my tourist bucks some place else), oh well.

    Happy Find

    I found the park to be very pleasant, and fail to understand Jan's point of view. It certainly IS big enough for large dogs to get a good run. And it's a DOG PARK!!! One doesn't expect manicured golf course-style greens in a park where dogs romp and play and tear-up the turf! It has a secure gate. It has pick-up bags and disposal container. There is a source of fresh, potable water and a bowl is provided. There are two picnic tables for human companions. And the perimeter is mostly surrounded by flowering rose bushes that have over-taken the fence. So it feels very private and secure. I will definitely continue to make use of this facility when in-town working!

    Not worth the effort

    This small place is not suitable for large dogs and looks more like an unkept back yard, rather than the dog park it is advertised as.

    Okay Park

    An okay small park. A bit hard to find since it's actually a block and a half north of the park. A bit dirty and ran down.

    This park is actually closer to Taft, on Hudson.
