“Awesome place”
Reviewed 30 January 2013 via mobile

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.

“Best dog park ever!”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

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 getting ready to go, they pace around, stare at me and complain to me that we haven't left yet! It is so nice for them, they can run, play, stalk squirrels, swim, catch balls, and if they're strong enough, swing from the big tree with the rope & ball hanging from it. It's alot of fun to watch them make friends and run/play with them. Sometimes, one chasing another will wind up in a long line of dogs running from one side of the park to the other. The members are friendly, and the staff is awesome. So, if you're travelling this way, and you's like a great place to take your dog[s], this is definitely it!!!!

“Loved it”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

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.

“Dogs love it”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

If we say bark central or the park our two dogs go nuts. This is an awesome place to socialize your dogs. Two areas, one for large dogs and one for small dogs. A pool in each area and plenty of pooper scoopers. A vacuum and washing area

“Nice Facility”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

This was my first experience in going to a Dog Park so I have nothing to compare this facility with. When I entered the office, I was greeted by George (very helpful and friendly) who checked my dog's medical information to be sure shots were up to date. He took me through the room where you are able to bathe and dry your dog before putting him in the car for the trip home...or have a groomer do it for you. The park is divided into separate areas for large and small dogs. There are ponds, benches, toys, trees, bushes and acres of play area...all enclosed with chain link fence. My dog had a wonderful time while I sat under a tree reading and talking with other owners. Be sure to get good directions if you are not real familiar with the area... a bit ticky to find.
