A nice open space especially when it is sunny. A big hill to roll/run down and a good walk over to the Black Dam ponds. Usually not very busy, nice in the Spring/Summer time.

This is a nice spot that I've been lucky enough to live locally to, and there's some great walks for dogs around here. The fields are pretty secure and and is a good size for dogs to have a good run around.
