Here, dogs can engage in regular exercise and socialization opportunities with dogs of similar size, age, and personality, thus greatly reducing the risk of accident or injury. Off-leash time is the focus of Burroughs Dog Park; however, park officials strongly believe that in order for all dogs to remain safe, precautions must be put in place. These include owners carrying a lead with them at all times.
Additionally, dogs are required to be leashed when entering and exiting the facility. Burroughs Dog Park is pleased to offer a public dog playground that the community can enjoy at no cost. The dog play spaces are loaded with amenities to enhance Fido's day of fun. Benches are provided in areas with plenty of shade to allow owners a comfortable space to rest and relax while their dogs frolic and play.
Also found within the runs is drinking water to help keep Fido well-hydrated. Dog wash stations are housed on the grounds and are accessible for public use free of charge. There are no bathrooms available at this doggy play haven. Poop bags are provided, and owners are asked to make use of them to clean up after their pets in a prompt manner.
The family-friendly Burroughs Park also offers many different recreational activities for families to partake of. Among the great amenities are a lake, walking paths, picnic areas, barbecues, and a playground. The lake is well-suited to both fishing and swimming. Burroughs Dog Park has a few expectations of dogs and their owners.
All dogs must be up to date on vaccinations and be in possession of a current city dog license. Proof of inoculations and licensing must be visibly displayed via tags on your dog's collar.
