This lovely dog park is a co-mingled dog park; there is no separate fenced section for small canines or puppies. This can put them at a slightly higher risk of injury as they plan with canines many times their size. Plenty of vegetation lines the park and great tall trees provide a lot of shade through most hours of the day.
When the sun is highest in the sky, there is not much shade at this park and you are subjected to the full force of the sun. There are no trees inside the fenced area to provide shade and no human-made structures you can use to shelter yourself from the elements.
Clarks Creek Dog Park does feature a forest-biome walking trail that you and your canine can walk through off leash. It is not long, as the total dog park comes out to less than an acre, but it features a well constructed and aesthetically pleasing bridge. The amount of room for your canine to run in Clarks Creek Dog Park is a bit limited.
Games like fetch or frisbee would have to be intentionally underpowered. As such, this space is best for the socialization of your canines as opposed to bringing them here for exercise. The most energetic canines will have a hard time stretching their legs and wear themselves out here.
Although there is a creek here, for health and safety reasons, you should bring your water and bowl for your canine to stay hydrated while they are here instead of letting them drink from the creek. Overall, Clarks Creek Dog Park makes for a great place to bring your canine to socialize with the other neighborhood dogs!
