It was a beautiful day to get out with the pups and explore. We spent a special day exploring the mountain, the ponds and the woods. The gallery was open for browsing which is always fun. Free summer concerts on Sundays. I love this place.

What a great spot to go to remember an old dog, have closure and also a great place to hang with your fur baby! Definitely worth the trip! Lot's of dogs and lots of happiness all around.

If you trust your dog off leash this is a great place to let them burn off some energy. There was a pond for swimming and an agility course. Our boys loved the break after a long ride.

Loved this place; had a total meltdown remembering past dogs in my life. Beautiful and amusing, a great combo. Warning: There's a gift shop and the stuff is pricey and some is hard to resist, other stuff easy to pass by. But it's free to...More

We did not have our dog with us, but the area was hilly. There were wooded areas and a pond. I think it's a place that your dog and you can do as little or as much as you'd like to do. It's an awesome place.
