55Very spacious and peaceful area as expected with numerous bushes and trees adding interest for the dogs. The random tunnels were an interesting bonus. Comfortable seating and cleanup stations at multiple areas. Bring bowl and water just in case. I didn't notice any but we had some back at the car. Some toy options provided. Fencing and gate seems very secure. Highly recommend this space!
55Great area to hang out with the family or if it's just you and your dog. We had a blast.
55Clean and enjoyable, as always. Thanks!
55Another excellent experience at the acres!
55Always a great spot! A little muddy hike to get to the spot so choose good footwear.
55Huge fenced in field. Well maintained with benches and poop bags.
55We love this spot; it’s perfect!
55Great fenced in location. Plenty to explore. Area was very well kept. We had a great time.
55Great as always 😀
55Amazing! Kathy was so kind to meet us and show us the “ropes” for our first visit. The space was so clean and well cared for. She has excellent systems in place to ensure gate safety for her guests. My dog absolutely loved being able to really stretch his legs running around. There are great spaces to sit for the humans. The area seems to have really good drainage, we didn’t have any mud to contend with. Of note, but not at all of concern to us, is that the little trail leading back to the fenced area did have a little mud- just a little note to those booking to wear appropriate shoes. We will be back on a regular basis. Thank you so much, Kathy!
