The fence also splits this area into two sections, one for large canines and another for small breeds and puppies under 25 pounds. Running water is available at this location in the form of a water hose, so be sure to bring your bowl. This park hosts all the usual amenities. Poop bags are available at the entrance to either dog park, and garbage cans are scattered throughout and regularly emptied.
Restrooms are also available here during the spring and summer months. During the late fall and winter, the bathrooms are locked up, and all the water at the park is turned off to prevent freezing. There are trees at this park to provide shade for the patrons of the park, and there is seating in the form of benches both at the entrance to the park and sporadically placed along the fence line of the dog park.
The mulch here at the Donaldson County Dog Park stays in reasonably good condition, but the grass is very sporadic throughout the dog park and does not prevent the area from turning to mud after a heavy rain. The Donaldson County Dog Park is of average size for a dog park in a large city.
There is some room to run, but you will find games like fetch or frisbee to be quite limited. The primary drive for dog owners to come to this park, in particular, would be for the socialization, as they would not have the room to run to wear out a very energetic canine. However, the Donaldson County Dog Park is a nice place to spend the day with your dog.
