Robert E. Lambert Park has many reasons for people to visit. For dog lovers, it’s not the playground or the skatepark that draws attention: it’s the dog runs. Robert E. Lambert Park has two fenced dog runs for off leash play right in the heart of the park. There’s something for the whole family! The two runs are separated by size, so your dog will always be able to find appropriate playmates. Remember to bring your own bowl when you attend the park. Though there are plenty of water fountains, they’re all built for someone who walks on two legs.
