There are picnic tables available for seating, and you can often find some under the shade of nearby trees. There is also a gazebo at this park to produce shade for some of the picnic tables underneath. Poop bags are available at the entrance to the dog park, and you can find a garbage can nearby to dispose of the waste.
The park stays very well maintained. The ground here is mulch which helps to keep your canine clean, but after a heavy rain, the earth still turns to mud. The mulch itself is less clean then a grass park would have been. There is enough space for your canine to run around and wear themselves out but long-range games like fetch or frisbee would be quite limited.
The high tall trees in all direction don't just provide a good amount of shade; they also make for a very private feeling that lends to the atmosphere at this park. The winding road, Hartman Road, makes the approach to this park that much more scenic. Water is available at this park in the form of a waterspout. Be sure to bring your bowl so your canine can stay hydrated.
This water is only available during the spring and summer months and is turned off in the winter to prevent freezing. Overall this is an excellent park for the residents of the area. For non-residents and travelers, this may be an out-of-the-way park. What it lacks in locational convenience it makes up for in the natural beauty you can find at this dog park.
