    Amazing place!

    Definitely the biggest dog park we’ve ever visited. There is fencing on three sides and open to the river, but the river is far from the upper open grass area, so plenty of room to stay away.

    Fun Spot for Dogs, with a view

    We stopped here on our way through Bath to give our dog an off-leash break from traveling. Large grass park with a gravel walking track along the perimeter and views of Bath Iron Works/waterfront. Our dog had a blast playing with other pups and we met some very kind locals who love the park. There was also a clean water fountain for dogs.

    10/10 - It doesn't get better than this!

    We've been to dog parks all across the East Coast and this is one of the nicest parks we've ever been to. Big, wide expansive area for pups to run, a walking track setup around the entire park, and water access for pups who are inclined to scramble a bit on the rocks. It's gorgeous, accessible, and just all around a lovely experience for owner and pup. Every dog we encountered was friendly and social, and the owners were pleasant to chat with. We told our pups they had "peaked" as far as dog park experiences go and it's all downhill from here. ;)

    I'm not a city dweller and my pup and myself do not like the leash. We were near the area and heard of this place. After all day in the car. We brought Max to this park... He was able to run free, meet and play with local dogs, swim in the river. The drool was hanging and all was wonderful. You can even bring yourself a picnic and eat while your dog plays and socializes. Very cool.

    This is a beutiful park with river access if your dog is inclined to climb down the rocks... Only downside is that there is no barrier between park and parking lot... DRIVE SLOWLY WHEN YOU ENTER.

    Swell park

    Well maintained grass. Friendly people. Mostly retrievers chasing balls then taking a swim in the river. When in Bath (all summer) I take my dog to the park twice a day. My friends are there and my dog's doggy friends are there, too.
