    Crowded And Hot

    There’s barely any shade for pets or people at this park. Usually pretty crowded on weekends. No water available so bring your own and a bowl for Fido.

    Great Place!

    If your dog happens to get muddy/hot there is a little pond behind the trees next to the park where people will let there dogs go swimming. It's great!

    Great for free!

    It's only 2 acres but it's still a nice place to take your dog to run around and play, and that's the main focus. And it's free. Every time I go there are nice people and I always make friends.

    Good Location

    Although this dog park was a little dusty, it is great to have a free location to let our dogs run around. Although woodchips would have been a nice touch, it seems like the area is lacking dog parks and we will continue to go to this one!
