However, according to some locals, the park is no longer lit because the solar panels were often the target of theft or vandalism, and became too costly to replace continuously. There is no grass, just dirt and small stones line the ground. Mud can be an issue for a short while after a rainfall, but the desert Arizona climate usually keeps the ground quite dry. Even still your canine will likely leave very dirty.
This park also has several additional amenities that you would not likely to find at your typical dog park. There is water available in the form of a hose, so you can clean off your canine at the end of your time here, and make sure you both stay hydrated for the duration of your visit. Dog bowls are available, but if your canine does not like to share with others, bringing your dog bowl is a good idea.
At the Christopher Columbus Dog Park, you will find plenty of seating to relax and watch your dog play. Benches line the fence, and there is a covered pavilion to provide shade or shelter from the elements. Positioned underneath the awning is a picnic table.
This is a pretty looking area, and there is plenty of space to run and it is a place you could bring a canine with boundless energy and wear them out. Tennis balls are usually littered around, and this place has the room to play some pretty long ranged fetch. The Christopher Columbus Dog Park is the perfect place to come by on your way to the groomers.
