Long Description:
This is a great dog park with really friendly and responsible visitors. We go there daily and have only witnessed one dog fight since we started visiting. There are poop bags provided for visitors who forget to bring them, a big bucket full of tennis balls and donated frisbees for using at the park, a kiosk with postings having to do with local dog happenings and the park in general, jugs of fresh water to refill the communal water bowl, and several picnic tables. There are 3 ponds to keep the water dogs happy, and a ton of trees for marking. There is a sand pit for digging (please refill the holes for safety reasons) and lots of lawn space for romping. Best of all, there is almost always four + dogs around just waiting for a new playmate. An active community group donates time to add upgrades to the park. Although there is no designated small dog areas the park is large with rolling hills and the owners who want to hide out from the active pack can always find a quiet corner. The only drawback is the lack of a bathroom. I think there may be an outhouse though. Great people! Great dogs! Great fun!!!

To log this waymark, you must be able to prove to the waymark owner that you were at the park in question. This probably means a photo. The photo must be identifiably at that park, so having your GPS in the photo might not be a bad idea (alternatively you may include a recognizable landmark)
If you have a dog, photos of your dog having a good time would also be appreciated.
