The park also includes picnic tables and restrooms for the comfort of the human visitors. The park is spacious and has plenty of lush grass to roll around in. There are trees all over the park that provide shade for the hot summer days. Don't fur-get to bring water and waste bags!

This is a big open space where dogs can frolic off-leash in the lush, green grass.
