This dog park also goes by the name of Taylor Dog Park. Hanover Dog Park is a relatively small dog park located in Ashland, Virginia. The dog park itself spans just about an acre and is a combination of grass and dirt. Because of the small size and high traffic, the ground here tends to trend more to the latter, and your canine might pick up a good amount of dirt on their coat while they are here.
These issues escalate on a rainy day or after a heavy rainfall as the ground turns into mud. Water is available at this dog park so you and your canine can stay hydrated. You can find it at the entrance to the dog park in the form of a water fountain with both high and low dispensers, so no need to bring your bowl. For a single acre, they have fit in a pretty decent amount of agility equipment.
The amount of space here does limit how much running your canine can get in, and highly energetic canines might have a hard time wearing themselves out at this dog park. Games like fetch and frisbee are possible here, but rather limited. Seating is available for dog owners in the form of benches along the fence line of the park. There are not many trees and no human-made structures to produce shade for the patrons of the park.
There is no separate section for small canines. The proximity to I-95 makes this park ideal for travelers looking for a place to stop with their canines. As this park is only about an acre and some large dogs may not find it adequate to wear themselves out, this dog park is probably best utilized for the socialization of your canine. That being said, an acre is enough space to run around a bit with the other canines at this dog park.
