Inside the grove where the park is located is a green space perfect for running and playing with Fido. Parking is available along the road. Once inside the park, you and your leashed pooched will find a shaded play area where neighborhood kids and other pups can be found playing. An extensive playground is located here, surrounded by a paved trail that connects to other amenities such as a basketball court, swing sets, grills, picnic tables, water fountains, and trash bins. This area is the only part of the park filled with amenities, as the rest of the 5.8-acre park is open and green.
On the north side of the park is an open run, and to the west side of the park, a paved trail follows along a small creek that curves along the western edge of the park. The trail runs pretty close to the creek, but still offers room to play and run in the grass. The trail stops at a patch of trees, where a shaded sitting area is placed next to a small beach along the creek, where people can hike or dip their feet in the cool creek water.
The Emma Carter Park is a gorgeous park thanks to its large amount of green space and fine amenities surrounded by grassy praires and the sounds of a creek passing by. No matter what your plans are for the park, you and Fido will be sure to have a great time.
