Poop bags are available for your convenience at the entrance to the dog park, and garbage cans are scattered throughout. You will be subjected to the rays of the sun here. The park also does not have running water, and you will want to bring your own. Sara Park has some public restrooms and running water that you can collect and bring with you, but it is a bit of a walk.
The water is available only during the spring and summer months, as these public restrooms are closed, and water is off during the winter. This dog park is run and maintained only by the donations of its users. No tax dollars go into the upgrades or maintenance of this park, and as such, they ask for a $2 donation for day use or a $20 donation on an annual basis.
The Tomahawk Dog Park is free, and these are just suggested donations, but to keep the park as well maintained as it currently stands, they claim they need these donations. You can find out more information about volunteering your time or monetary donations on their website. The field here does not have much shade.
The shade here only comes in the form of trees that are on the outside of the dog park, and they just cast shadows far enough to produce shade when the sun is low in the sky. Overall, you will find this dog park to be an exceptional place to bring a canine to help socialize them with other canines or allow an energetic dog some time to play and wear themselves out.
