- EdwardJan. 20, 2018Excellent dog park.
Both the small and bigger (35+lbs) have very high fences that look 8’ high. Smaller dog section has 4 benches throughout and a couple huge rocks ppl sit on, plus a shaded area w multiple trees. Water fountain for ppl inside and for dogs as well. There are two gates to go through with th idea that the one gate is closed before opening the second gate to prevent dogs from escaping. This is an excellent feature. Downside is the space/gap between each gate door and poles they align with are about 4”. I have a lean dog a foot tall. I exited w the leash on into the small enclosed area between gate doors and my dog proceeded to step fwd and exit through the space with the gate closed. Not an issue for post dogs. Had mine not had the leash on he”d have bounded free to, in his mind, go run and play in the woods.
Also despite signs to keep one door closed at all times both doors are opened briefly when a few ppl are leaving. An energetic dog could bound through both open doors in about 2 seconds literally. But I still go. The dog has a great time!!

I drove around in circles trying to find it and my poor dog didn't enjoy it either. Is there an address or road to go to? I'm coming from West Orange.
- BrianMore than a year agoawful
the fenced-in area is poorly maintained and little shade is available. there are zero signs on the trails, which, by the way, were ankle sprains waiting to happen. Brookdale Park is FAR superior.
- RobMore than a year agoMaplewood, not South Orange
The dog park is in the South MOUNTAIN Reservation, not South Orange; and it is in the township of MAPLEWOOD. No dog is permitted in any park in South Orange.
- JenniferMore than a year agoloved it!
We went to the small dog park. My dog can be a little frightened of rowdy play, but there was plenty of space for him to wander away from the group and fun equipment to keep him occupied.

- NancyMore than a year agoCorrection
The small dog park is limited to 25 lbs (not 35 lbs. as I stated previously).
- NancyMore than a year agoThe Best!
This dog park is the best place to meet very friendly dogs and people. Clean, large (two parks - small (<= 35 lbs.) and large (>35 lbs.), fresh water and fountains, disposal waste bags (and owners are diligent about using them), toys and trick props... we've been there every day since I discovered it on Bringfido.com. It's raining today - now what are we going to do????

This place is really amazing. It has 2 fenced in areas: one for larger dogs and another for pups! It has toys and activities for your dog as well as water poop bags. Its a great place! They are doing some construction it looks like they are expanding
