The park itself is quite large, with plenty of vegetation. The trees have a high canopy that provides a good deal of shade through most hours of the day. Although the area is grass, during early spring before the grass has grown much and after the summer rains, much of this dog park can be quite muddy. If you are coming a few days after any rainfall, be aware you might go back home quite dirty.
There is plenty of space to play long range games like fetch or frisbee. For being in the middle of town, the amount of room your canine has to run and play here is quite astonishing. Dog bags are available for your convenience, and you can find garbage cans at the entrance and scattered along the park. Alongside the fence and under some of the tree you can find bench seating.
You are required to verify that your canine has the proper vaccinations, and you are required to get a permit from the state. Information regarding those permits can be found on their website and are available at most Parks and Recreation locations.
There have been several reports that this park is in rough shape. The metal trash cans are rusted, some of them to the point they are rusted shut. There are also reports of the fence having been damaged to the point a small canine may be able to make it through and run off. There are also reports of jagged edges and other parts of this fence putting canines at risk. These reports were found between 2014 and 2017 and we could not confirm if those issues have been addressed.
