    This dog park is probably one of the best in the central Iowa area. The park stretches over a good sized-piece of land. The park is seperated into a small-dog and large-dog parks so that the small dogs do not get intimidated. Relative to size, the large-dog park is bigger than the small-dog park. The park is a great way for your pets to get acquainted with other dogs, as well as the owners getting aquainted with other owners. The park supplies water for the dogs and it supplies fecal bags for the owners. When I went with my sister's dogs they had a great time, they get tons of excerize and fresh air. The area is clean because of the park employees AND the assistance of the owners to pick up after their pets, it makes the park better and better each day!

    Pros

    FUN!

    Cons

    NONE
