    Beautiful place, but too hot to stay long. Will definitely try again when it's cooler

    Great spot! Massive fenced area for the dogs to run. There is an area for your dogs to swim however there is an opening on that side for your dog to take off if it’s recall isn’t any good. Mine loved running through the marsh! Dog toys provided too!

    Although my dog had a blast, I assumed the fence would extend down to the water. He went through the marsh and we almost lost him as he headed toward the neighbor’s house. Thankfully he came back to us, but it was kind of nerve wracking
