Large Park with a Pond!
I went here for the first time last Sunday (Father's Day) and must say I was very impressed overall. I had been going to Quail Ridge and while I was generally happy there (my dogs certainly loved it!) I was hoping to find a place with a pond since my dog LOVES to swim but any lake in my area is "off-limits" to dogs because humans swim in it, too. So I was very excited to learn about the pond here, and it was the same distance for me to travel as Quail Ridge! I will state my likes/dislikes but mind you the only park I have to compare it to is Quail Ridge so forgive me if it seems biased. Some pros: a very LARGE fenced in area that includes a pond. When I went there were very few people and dogs (which is both a pro and a con for me) so it didn't feel overcrowded and the owners could pay closer attention to their own dogs instead of getting caught up in socializing. The park was relatively clean; I didn't have to dodge piles of dog feces that irresponsible owners neglected to pick up, so that made me very happy. A very large covered gazebo with benches also was pleasing to me. Some cons: The pond is VERY filthy, my dog was covered with mud and grime from the water. I had to give her a bath when we came home. There is also spots around the outside of the pond with standing water that would be a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes so that was a concern as well with heartworms. It is low-traffic again so there weren't as many dogs for my dogs to interact with, but it was definitely not too crowded! Overall, I will be returning here again. They are also having a Paws in the Park on September 13 starting at 11am for anyone interested in attending!
