- JoanJul 5, 2023Great place to run
We never found the fenced dog park, but this is a huge park with plenty of space for your pup to explore.

This dog park is HUGE, and is better since they added the single-occupant new dog area and the small dog park out front. My family and I have been coming here for years. Lots of dogs come, though at off-times it may be just you and one or two others. The same group of owners come and stay with numerous dogs weekday mornings, and you either love them or hate them. Weekends are much busier and tend to have more kids. Ever since they added these new park-and-pay thingies I've parked at Starbucks and walked the dogs across the street and up the hill

I was so excited to visit the dog park today as we used to come here often but have since moved away. My dogs and I are visiting so going to a familiar dog park was much anticipated. Unfortunately we were met with a “click” of mean spirited women with their dogs who’s behavior was much the same. Perhaps we were treated so rudely because they were frustrated with their dogs fierce mannerisms and they took it out on us,. When I realized the local gossiping group had trouble getting their dogs to be nice I put my two on leash to usher them out of the dog park in hopes of avoiding being involved with their unruly pets. Instead of being able to leave without notice I was chided and criticized by the group for breaking The no leash rule. I will never go back to this unfriendly dog park. How disappointing.

Thanks to everybody for the bad reviews of this place. Thanks to the rude regulars, we are never going to visit this place!

The Dog Park inside of Woodward Park is a fabulous place to take your dog. It has a very large area for the majority of the dogs, in addition to a smaller solo area to acclimate first-timers, and a small dog area. There are benches, chairs, a shade structure, trees on the outskirts for shade, a small kiddie pool, water buckets, hose and faucet, water fountain, pooper-scooper, and toys scattered about. There were lots of dogs in the park, but it didn't feel crowded, plenty of space. There are a few downsides to this park. There is a $5 entrance fee to Woodward Park. If you go before or after the booth hours, you don't have to pay. Or you can park outside the park and walk in, which proves to be a nice pre-exercise for my pup. The grass is pretty patchy, but that isn't too much of a surprise in the Central Valley. Overall, this is our favorite dog park in the Fresno/Clovis area.

Dog park is ok wish they'd fix mowing the grass and things also the "regulars" are rude and careless many have aggressive dogs and people dont ask to pet or grab your dog some deserve to get hit grabbing and yanking at another persons pet.

This facility is great for dogs but some of the "regulars" are real idiots. No respect and aggressive dogs. I've moved to the valley animal center and it's a day and night difference. This place isn't regulated and no one follows rules.
- DeannaMore than a year agoGood size park
Oct 2014 Would have given this 5 bones except for having to pay $5 to enter the park. So be sure to enjoy all the park amenities. Saw well behaved dogs playing. Ours was a bit shy but did have room to run. No small dog section and they tend to be yappy at the bigger dogs.

Close to home, lots of parking. However, many owners bring dogs to and from their cars OFF leash, making it dangerous for driving and for unwanted interactions. In the fenced area, many owners do not clean up their dog's poop, making it unhealthy for all. Owners appear to sit together and gab, with their dogs sitting near them until a new dog arrives at the gate. Then the dogs flock to the gate which disrupts entering and leaving safely. Owners may want to consider exercising with their animals by walking or tossing a frisbee or ball! Isn't the purpose of the dog park to exercise the dogs? In addition, throughout the park, many dogs are OFF leash. City workers say they cannot give citations. Woodward Park COULD be 5 bones, except for the careless dog owners.
- MarciMore than a year agoFirst Time Too Woodward Dog Park
This was my dog's first outing at a dog park and her first time around many other dogs. I wanted to try and get her socialized. I thought the park was well equipped it had water for the dogs, balls, they had bags and scoops to pick up your dogs poop. They had tables and benches to sit on while there.
