Dogs are not officially allowed here and are explicitly not allowed during school hours. This secondary baseball and practice field is entirely fenced and has two trash cans, but no disposal bags. There are two baseball diamonds facing each other and open lawn in between them. Great for using the Chuck it or for doggie playdates. Evenings and weekends are the times to be here and always clean up after your dog since it is on school grounds.
