“What a great space!”
Reviewed 24 August 2012 via mobile

We took our 12 lb dog Mugsy to his first ever dog park. It was the first time since we rescued him that we've taken him anywhere outside off leash (aside from his own backyard). We met up with a lot of other dogs and some very friendly dog owners. It was our first time at Quarry Run and we didn't know the lay of the land. I'm not sure where the small dog only area was, but our dog happens to LOVE bigger dogs, so we weren't overly concerned. Mugsy was so excited to play with other dogs and people, but we didn't want to overtire him on our first trip by exploring everything there was to offer We will definitely be going back and hope to make it a weekly excursion. We will be doing more exploring each time, I'm sure. We really couldn't believe how spacious it was! The only complaint we had was with irresponsible dog owners that had clearly been there before us. We found many droppings from larger dogs that their owners didn't bother cleaning up. As well as those that had been bagged up, but the bags were just tossed in the woods. It's a shame that not everyone can appreciate such a wonderful space and treat it respectfully. Well done city of Portland!

“Excellent off leash park for dogs”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

I am from out of town, and my dog is used to an off leash walk every morning. This is a the perfect place for her to run and play with other dogs. There is always water in the pavilion at the top of the hill, where it is nice to meet other dog owners. Almost all of the dogs are friendly. My dog loves to greet the other dogs as they arrive, but the double gate provides security so she can't leave the park area.
I appreciate the people of Portland Maine who recognize the importance of supporting green space for people and their pets.

“Idk”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

The small dogs were not in the septate area they were barking non stop at the big dogs while the owners just yelled over and over. Dogs that yelp need to be banned! Found a much better park!

“Excellent running fun for your pup”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

A really good place to bring your dog to. Ours loves to run around the 'circuit' which is at the top of the little hill where you park. The inside of the park is nicely fenced in and the people in there have always been friendly. If you're looking for a safe place to let your dog go for a sniff, bring them here.
