My dog loves coming to this park because there's always plenty of other dogs for him to play with and it's fairly large so he has lots of room to run. There are water fountains for the dogs and several clean-up stations with bags provided. The place seems to be well-kept; I've never seen the trash cans overflowing or the grass too tall.

I've been going to this park quite a long time, but today really got me worried that my truck was broken into. This is your warning, DO NOT leave any of your personal belongings inside your car. Today another person I ran into stated the same thing that they have heard break ins have been happening alot more often here. Leave it to the scumbags who drive by and decide to break into the cars. The park has fantastic area for dogs and I do truly enjoy going there with my dog, but for the love of God, it's time to post up cameras in the parking lot!

Nice place to bring your puppers. A lot of friendly people as well but they do have the occasional a**h*** who don't pay any attention to their dogs

Great place for your dog. Two large fenced areas with great walking trails. A bit of a walk to get to the area. It is not convenient for a short visit.

A good park when everything works. But once their water fountains stop working or there is some drainage problem, the city takes forever to fix it and even then, they do a sloppy job! Their hotline has not been working for more than 3 weeks and the employees give a sarcastic reply when asked about it.
