One acre fenced area with double gated entrance, poop bags, some shade, standard dog park rules, and lovely benches. Bring your own water.
Seems to be the only dog park in Western MA. The park is set on a hilltop surrounded by mountains and trees. Lovely day trip, and well worth it. Stopped into All Caring Animal Center on the way home - this place is a wonderful resource for everything animal especially raw food for pets. Park is open during daylight hours only.
