Amazing space, separate dog sections and watering stations. Lots of poo stations and responsible and social owners. Love love love it!
- MelanyMore than a year agoRude people, agressive dogs
I have been to this park twice.
Both time i had rude people ( regulars) and agressive dogs. The first time one of the regulara actually grabbed the collar of my 8 month old St.Bernard and tell me because he was not neutered he could not be in the park. I told him "giant breeds are neutered AFTER 1 year old, if you have any other comments talk to my vet and get your f***ing hands off my dog"
The second time i went Wilbert my St boy was attacked by a Bassett hound..... the lady tried to tell me my pup started it by "scareing her dog because of his size compared to hers and i really should find a different place for my dog to go where there are not smaller dogs."
Needless to say told her to p*ss off.
DON'T GO HERE!

Great park with plenty of shade, water, seating bags & trash cans. Super clean with nice walking path which is great for a little cool down walk. Definitely recommend.
- LacyMore than a year agoHuge park
The park is huge with so much room to keep distance if needed or to run and get out energy. There are trash cans hanging everywhere with poop bags and pooper scoopers. Nice that there are chairs all over even if many seem to be cracked plastic ones. There are definitely regulars here who have their own click and kept to themselves, but some were also very nice and sometimes I want to keep to myself too.
- AnonMore than a year agoNot a safe place for you or your dog
The park itself had potential: chairs/benches, water, several trees, a lot of pooper scoopers and trash cans, etc.
The park was dirty, a lot of dog poop (no one using the pooper scoopers provided). I visited this park on a week day afternoon, there were about a half dozen people there, and about a half dozen dogs.
I understand all dog parks have their regulars who know each other, this was my first time visiting this dog park. I was greeted by rude, aggressive, barking dogs at the gate with no owner intervention. I continued walking my dog on leash to give her time to acclimate to the new environment and walk away from the rude dogs.
During my visit to the dog park, a couple of the dog owners did help their dogs mind their manners, most did not. Typical of dog parks, the best place to find the worst dogs.
About the same time I arrived, two men came with a dog, obviously in training, on a lunge line. Same scenario for them, rude dogs greeted them at the gate with no owner intervention. What looked like a dog trainer, ignored the dogs and continued walking his dog briskly through the dog park.
Later I heard a woman screaming at the trainer, challenging him to fight a woman. After that many of the regulars left the dog park. It was quiet for a while (thank goodness).
A short time later a man started screaming, swearing and carrying on with threats to the "old man" with the dog on the lunge line. Because this was the second outburst I heard, I took a video (link below).
Because I kept my distance from the regulars, I could see that the man leading and training his dog had no effect on the people at the park or the dogs. Other than general sniffing, I didn't see any inappropriate behavior from the leashed dog. I don't know what the issue was, but clearly uncalled for behavior from a total stranger.
I will NEVER visit this dog park again (that should make the territorial regulars happy), it's not clean (a reflection of the regulars who visit this dog park, because the tools to keep it clean are there) and clearly unsafe for newbies.

Once a lush green grass has now turn in to lumps of dried grass. Almost a quarter mile walk around the perimeter of the large side fenced area was a highlight of my trip. Now Twisted ankles and broken promises. Most owners have great control of the pet friends but there are a few that tend not to know when it's time to make an exit.
- SarahMore than a year agoAmazing dog park
This park is by far one of the best dog parks I have ever taken my dog. The other dogs are friendly, the owners are friendly and it is an overall nice environment for dog parents and their dogs.
