“A friendly, relaxed environment. Most times I’ve been here there have been a TON of dogs! Always lots of fun!”

“Mornings (7-10am) is always busiest, next would be evenings (5pm-sunset). If you want to quietly try it out, go between 10am-5pm.”

Here are some reviews listed online:

“My dogs love this park because they can run up and down the hills, hunt through the tall grass, brush, and woods and chase each other along the long stretches of open areas.”

“This is the BEST dog park in the area. Great fun and exercise for both the four legged and two legged. The large dog park has a huge fenced in trail area for off leash fun. The park is very clean and well maintained. Everyone picks up after their pets. Bags are supplied. Love this park. We go daily in all weather.”
