    My dog loved it!!

    I visited this park for the first time today. I had read some reviews about a year ago and was very hesitant to go based on some of those. This park is great. It was completely shaded with all of the trees around. All of the dogs there this evening were very well behaved and trained. I will definitely be bringing my dog back to visit.

    Address incorrect

    We couldn’t find the place, both the address on this app and info we found online about the park led us astray. Not knowing the area the person who posted earlier about an incorrect address didn’t help.

    Excellent dog park. It is clean and shaded well. There is water available in the park to give your dog. The separate area for small and large dogs is a plus.

    great place to take the dog, 3 separate areas to separate dogs if you need to. Small area for little dogs , and 2 full size areas for regular dogs...one area is a shaded hillside which can be muddy a day or two after a good rain, but there is also a flat grassy area that is wide open to the sun and is a great place to play ball or Frisbee.

    Really good park

    Visiting from out of town and found it online. As nice as any dog park we have in Nashville. Recommend it! As a side note...the relatives that live in Fairmont didn't know about it. You should check it out.

    I agree with Connie. This park was a huge disappointment. I've never been to a dog park that doesn't have grass. It's a muddy mess and so is the road to get back to it. We couldn't believe how tiny it is.

    What a terrible disappointment. Both the small and large dog areas are nothing but mud and leaves. They are so small that mot peoples' living rooms are bigger. Also, the road back to the park is so bad that it will knock your vehicle out of alignment. What a joke and disappointment.

    MAP LOCATION INCORRECT - but the park is great!

    The dog park is within East Marion Park, which is not the location marked on the map. To get to this park, you turn from WV 273 (Gateway Connector) onto Cole Street (opposite of the on-ramp for I-79 South). You take a right at the first stop sign beside the Marion County Parks and Recreation Center (MCPARC). You continue into East Marion park towards pavilion #5, which is near the dog park. Once you get into East Marion Park, the route to the dog park is well-marked.
