There's also a hose to rinse off if needed and a water fountain to quench Fido's thirst after an active afternoon. The grass is real and while digging is discouraged, it happens. However, owners are encouraged to fill in holes.
This park can transport you from the busy feeling of city life into a calming feeling of nature. The park also has plenty of space for your dog to run around in the grass and up and down the hill. You could also try training your dog to jump using the dog hurdles made of tree stumps and sticks.
Your pup will be exhausted by the day's end. For a more relaxing outing, you can walk along the perimeter or catch a view of the city, which is beautiful when the weather is nice. Poop bags are provided and are refilled by community do-gooders, which there seem to be a lot of in this area.
A local group of volunteers, the Friends of Upper Douglas Dog Park (FUDDP), works to keep Upper Douglas Dog Park a safe and enjoyable place for dogs and their owners. Their group posts reminders on social media about park maintenance notices, safety concerns, and even alerts you to community events that you and Fido might want to join in.
Keep in mind that the park is closed on Wednesday to allow for regular maintenance. In addition, it will close during the rainy season when there is bad weather, so you will have to pay attention to town notices.
