  5. No children under the age of 16 are permitted unless accompanied by an adult.  Children have a tendency to scream and run when excited, which can trigger a dog’s natural instinct to chase. For this reason and for the safety of your children, we do not recommend bringing small children and infants into the dog park.

    starts to play rough, bite, or fight must be leashed and removed from the park immediately.
