The Neal Butler Dog Park is small but full of fun things to do and explore. The dog park is located within the Neal Butler Park, which is an 18-acre park that features picnic areas, horseshoe pits, baseball fields, playgrounds, and walking trails. You and your dog can explore the larger park when he is on-leash.
The park has two off-leash areas, one for small dogs (under 29 pounds) and one for large dogs (over 30 pounds). You must keep your dog on-leash until he is in the fenced in area. The park is equipped with a variety of agility equipment for your pup to play on.
There are ramps for Fido to run up and down, hanging tires to jump through, and tunnels to run through. Your dog can get quite the workout at this park. The ground is primarily dirt, and there are some young trees. For the hot days, you can take shelter in the covered pavilion with seating and tables.
Your pup can also cool down by taking a gulp from the doggie water fountain. If meeting pups at the water cooler isn't satisfactory for him, there's also a fire hydrant he can go to and sniff out any potential friends. Keep an eye on your dog while at the park, not only for interactions with other pups but also cleaning up after him.
Being a good visitor and picking up after your dog is easy at this park, as they provide the doggie poop bags and have garbage cans ready for you. You cannot bring dog food or dog toys, as it may stir up possessiveness and aggression in the dogs.
Aggressive dogs must leave the park, and all the dogs who visit the park should be healthy and vaccinated, as well as well-socialized. If you do not know how your dog will behave with other pups, you should bring them to the park at a slow time.
