    Wonderful dog runs up to 9 am each day. On weekends it's doggie wonderland. Very fun for them to run around and play together. Kids also love watching the dog parade each morning

    Plenty of green space for you to have a picnic on a nice summer day. Bring your dog and let it run free without a leash before 9am.

    Dog tips: Off leash is only in the meadows, not the whole park. Don't take your dog off leash at an entrance, it's too tempting for them to go the wrong way. Always have collars and tags on your dog.
