Barker Field--Go early

We've been here a few times. While it's a nice facility, people aren't always careful about using the gates. I've seen dogs let out and the offender didn't go after them. I have found that if you go early in the day, it's a more conscientious group of people. The earlier group tends to keep an eye on their (and your) dogs. They are also a lot friendlier.

I love the parks in Richmond, however my dog has had his A$$ handed to him the last few times we have gone to Barker Field. Sometimes there are a good group of people, responsibly watching their dog, and sometimes it just a bunch of bullies. People are not that good at cleaning up after their dog, there's a lot of poo around the play area.
