CLOSED FOR SPRING Weather permitting, we plan to be back open in mid-April 2023. A large, open 1.25 acre fenced in yard with multiple small hills that is bordered on the west side by a public walking trail (with 6 foot fence) and on the north side by Rice Creek (with 5 foot fence). During the winter months, deer and foxes pass just outside of the fenced in yard, while in warmer months the creek entices additional wildlife as well as the occasional canoeist or kayak. There's abundant street parking as we are located at a dead-end. Please do not park in the driveway. Enter the yard using the gate located to the left of the garage.

    Great spot! I have a reactive puppy and while there are some visible spots to public walkways, it was very easy to redirect my pup.

  • Ash A., Mar 12, 2023

    A perfect spot with lots of fun toys!

  • Luke D., Mar 8, 2023

    HUGE yard with lots of toys!

    We booked this spot to celebrate our pup’s and her littermate’s one year birthday and had a fantastic time! There is plenty of room to roam and run. We cannot wait to come once it is nicer outside.

    A perfect spot to romp around!

    Beautiful property, very clean, lots of fun amenities. Frannie loved running up & down the hillside. Only downside for us is the public path along the western edge; Frannie is reactive to men and dogs. Unfortunately, a man & dog walked by shortly after we arrived, and she was triggered until they passed. Due to the deep snow, I wasn't able to catch her & stop her barking/chasing. I'd recommend this spot for anyone with a "normal" dog, but reactive dogs would need some management.

    Very nice spot thank you

  • Sierra B., Feb 28, 2023

    Great place to run our dog! We played lots of frisbee!

  • Ryan W., Feb 19, 2023

    A ton of open space to run and plenty of trees to sniff. The jolly balls, tennis balls and agility equipment were also an awesome bonus! Will absolutely be coming back.
