Though this dog playground is a designated off-leash area, owners are still required to have easy access to a lead as a safety precaution. Tom Bass Dog Park takes its name from the local hero Thomas Hutcheson Bass, a U.S. Army Reserve Officer, and State Representative. A man invested in his community and with a heart for pets, this dedicated dog facility was named in his honor.
The Tom Bass Dog Park is a public dog playground, and entrance to its premises is permitted at no cost. The dog runs house a walking trail as well as some agility equipment, water access, and dog showers. Bathrooms are situated on the grounds for public use. Complimentary poop bags are also available. It is the responsibility of all dog owners visiting Tom Bass Dog Park to promptly clean up after their pets.
