Located at the trailhead of the Warrenton Waterfront Trail, the Eben H. Carruthers Memorial Dog Park features a double-gated entry to prevent dogs from breaking out and running away. There is plenty of water, and the water spigots are always up and running, so your favorite pet does not become dehydrated while enjoying himself in the vicinity and there are also separate areas for large dogs and small and timid dogs.
This separation prevents fights and ensures the protection of smaller canines. There is plenty of grassy areas, and your four-legged best friend can roll around, run on and have plenty of exercise and socialization with other doggies at the Eben H. Carruthers Memorial Dog Park. There are benches where pet parents can sit on and relax while supervising their furbabies.
Waste stations are located all throughout the premises; however, there are no dog scooper bags for free, so you must bring your supply. There is a restroom nearby for those who would like to use the toilet without leaving the premises. Dogs must be current on all vaccinations with tags on the collar, healthy, sociable and under the owner’s control at all times to be able to enter and stay in the park.
Owners must do their part by cleaning up after their pets so other people can also enjoy the park’s cleanliness. In addition, your pooch must always be on their leash if not in their designated areas. People who frequent the park are charming, and their canines are well-behaved. The only problem is that there is not much parking. There are only about six or so spaces, and they are frequently occupied.
The good thing is that it does not take very long for parking spaces to open up. In addition, there is a bulletin board in the park with dog-related information for frequent visitors and pet parents to check. Quiet and peaceful, the Eben H. Carruthers Memorial Dog Park is an excellent place to go to if you do not want huge crowds.
