On a warm day, this will leave your canine quite a mess as you go to leave, but if it rains those issues quickly compound. The park has a decent amount of space in this park; you could play games like frisbee or fetch pretty easily. Though the name references the lake nearby, this dog park does not have water access nor is it adjacent to the lake.
You will not have a view or the ability for your canine to swim. There is running water at this location to keep your canine hydrated. There is also a good amount of space for your canine to stretch their legs and wear out even the most energetic canines.
This Silver Lake Dog Park is technically lit, but there are few lights and in truth remains quite dark even though it is open well past sunset. There are a few trees that provide some decent shade to visitors at the park, though only some of it is above the seating.
There are some picnic tables placed under the trees that provide the most shade inside the fenced area but many of these sit awkwardly on the incline. The space available at this fenced park is certainly on the plus side though. In comparison to other city parks in large metropolitan areas, this park is much larger then you would normally find.
There is just enough space that they can roam quite some distance but still remain in sight and under voice control regardless of where they travel inside the fenced area. If you value the space for your canine to really stretch their legs, then the Silver Lake Dog Park just might be for you.
