“Dog day of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

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.

“Bad Management”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

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 needed to get stitches at the vet). I was lucky I got my dogs away from it before it even started. The lady that owned the dog just said, that her dog is a bit protective (!!!).

I went to the park management to ask them if they knew that lady and her dogs and they said yes and that they know that this dog is protective but that nothing besides growling ever happened and that the lady comes to the park everyday ever since it was opened.

I expressed that I don't feel that knowingly aggressive dogs should be allowed in the facility.

Anyhow, they ensured me that they would find a solution and send me a note about the outcome. I never got any message. Meantime I heard from other people that there have been more problems with this dog but dog and lady are still is allowed in the park.

Sorry, but this is not safe and bad management! Not worth a 40min ride and 15 dollars entree fee.

Too bad, the park is nice

“Awesome place”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
