Small and close to roads

Good place to let your dog get wet. You have to have good voice control as public swim area is close. Roads are close by so your dog could run to road, no fence.

Too small, but great in summer to cool off!

This park is only about 100 feet wide, but is excellent lake access, with shallow water where the dogs can chase a ball and run in the water for quite some time. Great in summer to cool dogs off. Hard to keep dogs in 100 foot wide area.
