    No, I unknowingly walked on this gentleman's property with my dog. The owner a.k.a. Bob Risman was very rude and condescending. My dog is very sweet and gentle.

    The drive is quick...about 8-10 minutes. We usually park on a side street and then walk around everywhere. We also drive north ten minutes into Bolton which has a grocery store and shops/restaurants.
