This dog park features a fenced off-leash area, water bowls for dogs, trees, and benches. This is a co-mingled dog park so small dogs may be at a greater risk of being run over or attacked by larger canines. This park is open from one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset.
The park is two acres and completely fenced; dogs may play off-leash. It also includes a separate small dog area and mulch ground cover. Dog rules include: Owners must carry a leash at all times, keep the dog within sight and under voice control, and pick up after their dog. Choke, pronged, spiked, or electronic collars are prohibited. Dogs must be spayed or neutered and current on rabies vaccinations. Pet owners must immediately fill in any holes that their dog digs.
