This park can be hard to find, the easiest way to find this location is to look for the starlight drive in. It is located on the dirt road between the drive in and the river. There is a small sign at the entrance which marks the route. The Chapin Dog Park is a grass and gravel park in Witchita. The grass looks good and is well maintained during the spring and summer months.
The Chapin Dog Park is a large fenced area with plenty of space for your canine to run. Long range games like fetch and frisbee are possible here. There are some trees, but not much shade is provided for inside the fenced area. There are also no structures that provide shade. This can make for quite a hot time on a warm summer day.
Water fountains are available to make sure you and your canine can stay hydrated. However, you should be aware on a hot day that there will not be much protection from the sun. Therefore, you should wear sunscreen and take precautions. The fence does break the area into two sections, one for canines under 25 pounds only and another for all dogs.
Outside of the fenced area, there are gravel walking trails through the remainder of the park. These walking trails are quite beautiful, and you are allowed to bring your canine provided they remain on leash. These paths wind through some forest area and alongside a river. The view goes on for a long way, and it is all fields and trees.
This field was converted from an old softball field into the dog park it is today. The diamond where the actual ballgame was played is still very much dirt. When it rains, this area gets very muddy and can stay that way for days. This is a lovely dog park, well maintained and valued in the community. It is a great place to spend some time with your canine; they can wear themselves out.
