The other reviews you read - good and bad - are true. Yes, there are seldom any dogs there. Yes, when there are dogs there, too many are aggressive and their owners are rude. Yes, there are creepy white guys sitting in their cars with no dogs for extended periods of time. Yes, there is a brisk drug market there. Yes, it has two sections, small and large dog, and both are huge. Yes, portions of this park are breathtaking beautiful - seriously, there's one spot that would be great for an outdoor wedding. Yes, there are lots if wildflowers. Yes, there is a really cool wooded section, with paths and beaches, where you can walk your dog for nearly two miles. So, use this park wisely! DON'T TAKE KIDS!!!!! Go at odd, daylight hours. Don't take your dog there to meet other dogs, but during the many off hours to work on off-leash skills or spend some quality off-leash time together.

I love taking my dogs here. They have gated areas for small dogs and one for medium and large dogs. They also have a lake i was told not to let my dogs swim there .they have had several vet bills from the water apparently. They have an area for dogs off leash to run around.. They also having walking trails. Scotty potty on site. Bring your own water for fur babies.

The park has a large dog park with a small and large dog side. Picnic tables on each side. Plenty of parking and 2 entrances to the large dog park. The pond is not part of the fenced in area for dog swimming. There were lots of geese at the pond so watch your step.

Both the small dog and large dog areas were rather large! Reading reviews I expected a nightmare but there weren’t geese Everywhere, there wasn’t dog poop Anywhere, I felt very safe (there was even an adult female hanging out in a hammock between 2 trees!) and even though the weather was amazing, we had the whole field to ourselves. Picnic areas were nice and I saw no creepy old white men trying to freak on my butt! I really haven’t been to a better/bigger dog park in Cbus. Next time we’ll check out the rest of the park! Not saying these other reviews are wrong but I saw none of the negative stuff. It might change depending on the day and time and season... it’s a big city... others seem to have expected luxury accommodations. We are very lucky to have the metro parks we have located all over this place.
