Puppy palooza!

Great time for lets and owners too! Make sure to bring collar. And always have a harness on your dog if he swims.

Trip advisor does not allow recounts of even reliable sources. However, my experience was to be warned by management that there were two known aggressive dogs that are permitted to frequent the park, one required to be kept in a central unfenced area "away from" the other dogs ( that means about 100 feet/no barrier for this German Shepherd) and...

I thought a day with my family and our puppy would be great! After searching and reading reviews about this place I thought it would be a perfect day. NO WHERE did I read children under the age of 14 aren't allowed in the park. Nor is there ANY mention of a $10 a day fee,$5 for each additional dog.... More

This is a wonderful little place to take your pooches and enjoy the afternoon. Clean, well laid out, and friendly people.

Great place to let the dogs play in the pools, run, and still be safe off leash. Has hoses and bath stations so you can clean up your dog(s) before putting them back in the car.

The park is a nice facility with plenty of trees and a small natural pond for swimming. Unfortunately 3 out of 5 times I've been there with my 2 dogs we had some bad experiences with aggressive dogs there. One time one dog ended up with a bad injury of his eye due to an attack of another dog (he... More

We took our dog hereafter times. The staff on the first visit were awesome, they showed us the facility and showers, explained everything to us. Then it was play time, my dog (rhodesian ridgeback) had a blast. They have a pond and he loved it. Great place and great times.

I am a member of the park, and have been for around 2 1/2 years now, although it says below that I visited in October, 2011, that was the oldest date offered and the review cannot be submitted without a date. My dogs absolutely love being there, in fact, they know my routine, and when it's getting time to start... More

We were just visiting the area for a couple of weeks and they allowed us to bring our dog in for a very minimal fee. She absolutely loved it. She met some great dogs and we met great people. Thank you George for allowing us to use your facility. We will definately return.
