Description

Conveniently located 0.5 mile off I-235, we have a beautiful 1-acre wooded spot for our dog friends to run & play! It's a hidden gem tucked away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. It is fully fenced (4-ft chain link) with 2 private entry gates. Lots of open grass with some gentle hills and trees. There’s a concrete pad for off street parking next to the Little Free Library. One of the entry gates is located down a grass pathway from the parking area. The other is located from our private residence. A garbage can and extra pet waste bags are provided on site. There are even some toys and dog treats! Seating is located on site as well. There is no running water or restrooms on site so please plan accordingly! Also, please DO NOT SMOKE/VAPE or consume DRUGS/ALCOHOL while on the premises. Thanks and we hope you enjoy our private dog park!

Hazards

    Easy to find, lots of trees and logs to sniff.

  • Katie T., Feb 26, 2024

    There was a lot of space for the dogs to run around and sniff!

  • Jennifer A., Feb 24, 2024

    My golden was in heaven because he could chase his ball all over the yard and the pugs chased him. They were so tired after their hour which was a win for us! There was the cutest beagle that did find his way under the fence but wandered in, bothered no one and and then wandered back home.

    Awesome

  • Brooke M., Feb 17, 2024

    Great space for my dog. Very large and open and not filled with a lot of understory plants so I didn’t have to worry as much about ticks. As others have mentioned, there are multiple neighboring areas with dogs so it may not be the best option for super reactive pets.

  • Dayna P., Feb 12, 2024

    My bird dog’s favorite brush pile, and my fetcher’s favorite place to let loose.

  • Michele D., Feb 11, 2024

    This was our second outing here! Kai, our German Shepherd, had a fantastic time again!! Clean, fun and very hospitable!

  • Michele D., Feb 4, 2024

    Our first outing here was fantastic and we came home with a tuckered out German Shepherd! Clean, safe, spacious and very guest friendly! Thank you so much!

  • Dayna P., Feb 4, 2024

    We always have fun

  • Catherine H., Jan 10, 2024

    This is a quiet wooded area which includes sitting area, dog treats and waste container. My dog enjoyed the opportunity to run and sniff. The neighbor's Akita briefly barked and then went inside the house. Conveniently located off I-235.

Hi! We are an active family of 5 that loves the outdoors. While we don't currently have dogs, we are hoping to add a furry member to our family in the near future. We enjoyed taking our former dogs, Mitch and Oscar, to the local dog parks. BUT didn't always enjoy the experience they had with other dogs. So we decided to open up our property to others who have had similar experiences.
