This park hosts everything from playgrounds to sports fields, to walking trails to picnic areas. Inside this vast park, you will also find a fenced off-leash zone for your canine. In comparison to a large amount of space this park has to offer, the off-leash dog park is rather small, coming in at just about a half acre.
Inside the Patton Dog Park is all grass turf, and the grass here stays very well maintained. You will also find some nice trees inside the space that provide an ample amount of shade. Large canines may feel the space to be a little bit cramped, and it would be hard to wear out a large canine in this park.
For smaller canines, this space is great with plenty of room to roam. This is a co-mingled dog park, that means there is no separate area for large and small dogs. There is room to play some long-range games like fetch or frisbee provided you limit your throws a little bit.
Outside of the fenced area at the top of the hill that the dog park sits on is a large pavilion with great tables underneath. This is an excellent place for a picnic in the shade while some members of your family hang out in the dog park. Small portions of this dog park are gravel in place of where grass would or perhaps used to be.
Either way, the gravel makes for an easy time cleaning up after your canine. Overall, the Patton Dog Park makes for a beautiful place to hang out with your family and friends, and an excellent place to bring your canine to socialize with other dogs and run around to expend some energy.
