“Happy Dog, Happy Owner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

As mentioned by the others, the park is small, but a nice place to have a picnic. There are a couple of small, well-maintained grassy areas, but no play area for children. The stream that runs through is quick-moving, but not very play-friendly. The dog park is the highlight of the park, although it can become very crowded at peak hours. Bring your own water dish, as the common dishes can get quite mucky. For the most part, the dogs are well-behaved, but you truly get what you pay for (free). Our dog loves the off-leash freedom, and enjoys being able to get in some good sprints, but tires quickly of the aggressive pack mentality that often develops when owners are more interested in their electronics rather than their pets. Overall, a great place to visit before 10 AM on weekend days, or a good place for a short walk through the woods as the dog park gets bush.

“Dogs dig it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Visited town for a weekend and stumbled across this dog park. They do a nice job of maintenance: well wood-chipped, dog 'hose-down' station at exit, and places for the people to chill. Nice, wooded setting. The space isn't very large, but certainly big enough for the weekend canine crew I met. Muddy after a rain, but still woodchipped. Check it out if you're in Leesburg and the pups need a romp!

“Dog Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Not much to dislike, except that there are few picnic tables and not much wildlife (the usual ducks, geese, rabbits, groundhogs, and some birds occasionally). The main draw here is the dog park and the building in front of it, a hall for parties, classes (dog/puppy obedience classes run by the City of Leesburg), and anyone who wants to rent it. Its located behind the Food Lion on Rt 15 (southern end of town) and over a one lane wooden bridge over the town branch of Tuscarora Creek.

“Great dog park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

our dogs love it here! This is a great place to socialize your dogs and meet your fellow leesburgians. sometimes you run into someone who does not pay attention to their dogs but its the exception rather than the rule.

“IWLA-Dog Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The only Dog Park in Leesburg VA.
A very large pond and old chapter house

This property used to be part of the Izaak Walton, Loudoun Chapter that moved outside of town in the 60s.
some of the rock outcrops are remains of limestone used in Washington DC for the Monuments.
