This is a drainage basin. Like another reviewer stated, some people do not control their dogs and Ive had others dogs be aggressive towards my dog. If you dont know how to control your dog, please stay away!

Nice park and well kept. Watch out for the volunteers who clean the pen. Don’t get there too early or you might be reprimanded. Doesn’t open until 9:00 AM most dogs are friendly and the owners of the dogs are respectful of other dogs.

Nice dog park, fenced in and separated into 2 sections for large and small dogs. Experience with others here was pleasant.

A flood control area, with dead grass, that smells of feces and urine. Why anyone would go here, and not to a better location is beyond me. Please, be sure to pick up after your pet.

There are a few things I do not like about this park. The large dog section is woodchipped instead of dirt or grass. The owners don't control their dogs and they sit and complain about the board the whole time. Also there is a specific...More

My dog used to love coming here but now will never go back to this park. My small dog was attacked by three agressive dogs the minute we got there and it was relentless. The owner thought it was funny. My dog was trying to...More

Do not take your dog here if you are not a regular already. The people that rule this park are rude, blame your dog if their dog is attacking yours and are unwelcoming. Do not take your dog here if you love your dog. Beware...More
