“Great alternative to the walk...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

...and great for doggy socialization! Well maintained, grass and gravel dog park. Separate grassy park for small dogs. It's an extremely large area for dogs to explore or romp with each other. Two benches for humans. Shade available under highway and a few trees.

Please feel free to refill buckets with clean water while you are there!

“Your dog gets a play date”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

Thank you Huntsville for offering a dog park. Very large area for the dogs to run. There is a large dog area and then a separated area for the smaller dogs. They have even supplied poop bags, several trash cans placed around, buckets of water and a hose to clean the dog before leaving.

“A great day with your best friend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

My lab starts to whine when we turn off the Parkway at University 'cause she knows where she's going. A great place for her to socialize with her friends and a good time for her driver as well. A great way to spend an afternoon with other like minded folks!

“Great dog park in Huntsville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

Kudos to Huntsville for giving us a great dog park! It's a wonderful use of what is otherwise wasted space for the city (under the overpasses). There are 2 very large fenced areas, 1 for large (over 25 or 30 lbs) and 1 for small (under 25 lbs). My 2 beagle mix puppies LOVE to go and play with new friends! Everyone, human and puppydog, is very friendly and it's a great place to go for some fun socialization. As the other reviewer said, you can bring your own chair, or there are benches there. Bring your own toys if you want, if you won't be upset if another doggie "claims" it for play. You can find it again when you leave, LOL. Water is available now, and buckets to fill and distribute. It does get hot, there is some shade, but not a lot, so think about going earlier in the morning during summer...

Oh, and if your dog is extremely skiddish, be careful, there is a train track nearby. We once met a friend with a dog (we had no idea she was afraid like that), but the train whistle unnerved the poor sweetheart and she could never really calm down after that... Just a thought.

Check out their website for rules, etc. of the park
