Hamlin Dog Park is a unique park since it is located along the side of a tennis court. This specific design provides a fenced in safe area for dogs as well as supplying free tennis balls from players that accidentally hit them over the fence. If you forget your dog toys one day, you do not have to worry, there are usually plenty of tennis balls.
The park provides fresh water for the dogs. There are ample water bottles located under the tree area where pet parents are welcome to fill their dog’s water bowl. However, you should always bring a filled container and portable bowl along just in case the water runs out on a busy or hot day. Always clean up after your dog and bring along your poop bags.
There is a $5 fee that needs to be paid at the time of registration. Make sure you bring along vaccination documentation when you visit the office. The park is dog-friendly as well as pet parent-friendly. It provides seats and benches to relax while your dog runs around and has fun. There is also plenty of room to play fetch with your dog.
There is a large tree that provides shade for dogs as well as pet parents. All dogs play together in the same area so if you have a small dog that is not good with big dogs, you may want to go somewhere else. Also, if your dog is involved in aggressive behavior, remove him immediately and return another day. Keep your dog on a leash until you enter the gate to the dog park.
The park is mostly dirt and sometimes gets a bit muddy after it rains. Otherwise, it is a great place for dogs to run around, play, and socialize. All dogs that visit the park need to have their vaccinations up-to-date for the safety and well being of all dogs in the area. If your dog is sick or recovering from an injury, it’s best to keep him home until he fully recovers. Overall, this dog park is excellent because of its unique shape, fresh water, benches and fenced in area.
