    Dog Park

    We’re traveling so stopped in to use the facilities. Dirt, of course, but with a few trees. There was a covered area too.

    Nice for a visit

    The off-leash dog park is a nice, fairly quiet place to take your dog for a visit. There is a section for large, more active dogs and another for smaller, less active dogs. The large dog area has cute little additions like mini bridges, tires to jump through, and a covered gazebo. There are also tables and benches throughout the rest of the park. It's fairly well taken care of, and aside from being dusty it's fairly clean. I will say, I have only had issues with the other owners there, so I don't want to totally fault the location/park for the action of other dog owners. On a few occasions I took my elderly Boston terrier there and let him play around in the little dog area because he wasn't super active, and he had some obnoxious behaviors that bugged other dogs (he was a humper). So I would let him run around the small dog area so he could have the experience and exercise without causing problems for himself or others. And a lot of the regular park patrons convinced me to let my dog come over to the big dog area and let him socialize and their dogs were well behaved. Well, long story short, my dog got dogpiled and it was not a good situation. He didn't sustain any real damage, but he was pretty sore for a couple days. So in sharing all of this, I would say if you want to visit the park and use it in a reaponsible, respectful manner it's a great local. BUT, don't let the other dog parents pressure you into doing something you don't want your dog involved in. They were well meaning, but ultimately you know your dog better than others- be aware of potential bullies before you go in!

    Fairly Large But Poor Owners

    Making our way across country dog park by dog park, I give this 3 bones due to poor owners. There was a group occupying the gazebo not caring about the conduct or bathroom needs of their dogs. No wonder so many signs are up to pick up after your pet. Pics posted below. Otherwise, the park is large with a good supply of water. Beware that GPS May take you S rather than N.

    Beware: Human Bullies

    The only true negative about this dog park is that is a dust bowl. Unfortunately, the real problem is the group of owners who come and bully other dog owners. My dogs were playing with other dogs and barked a few times (in a playful way). The owners all glared at me, and one even told my dog to shut up a few times. Then he told me to get my dog out of there. I mentioned this experience to some fellow dog owners I know who told me of similar bullying experiences involving threats and even guns. Beware.
