The dog park is split into two play areas, one covered in Dwarf Tall Fescue grass, while the other consists largely of gravel. The spaces are alternated for use, with one open while the other is closed. The gravel side is sparse, with a paved path and a gravel and dirt covering for dogs to romp on. The grass side features a grassy center, surrounded by a cement walkway. Around that, your pup can explore trees, rocks and even more space to run. Shade is limited, but both sides offer running water, so be sure to bring a bowl. There's also clean-up bags provided to promptly pick up anything your pup left behind, though always have some on hand as they can run out.
Relax at one of the benches or picnic tables while your dog runs and plays to their heart's content, just be sure to keep an eye on the action. There's plenty of room for them to chase and romp, and this park seems to always have lots of friendly dogs to meet. One thing this park doesn't have, though, is a small dog area, so only little dogs who don't mind running with the big pups should visit.
Keep the leash in hand, and on your dog whenever entering or exiting the park, as well as anywhere outside of the fenced in areas. To safely play, your pup should be sporting current ID and rabies tags on their collar, as well as be up to date on all their vaccinations. And if you've got a digger, always fill in any holes they've created before you leave.
