Disneyland for dogs!
posted 5 years ago
I was thrilled to find the Soldan dog park- I have two dogs who love the outdoors and running off leash is the greatest! While I have found that early morning is best (otherwise it gets really packed), any time of day is a treat for my four legged friends. The park is set in the back of Hawk Island Park. There is parking specific for the dog park, plenty of doggy-doo bags and lots of waste containers. The park is completely fenced in and surrounds a lovely little lake with an island in the center. The only thing that I found frustrating this winter was the ICE- the trails were challenging to say the least- even my dogs had difficulty. Some dog owners aren't great about being aware of their dog's behaviors, and sometimes, it's a little scary; however, I must say that most dog parents are terrific about watching and caring for their companions. The lake is open in the summer for doggy diving and ball chasing and their is a "beach-like" area on one side where the dogs love to gather. Their are also people potties, and rescue materials in case a dog ventures out too far on the lake. The lake had fencing around it this winter, to prevent venturing out on the ice, although some dogs found their way just fine. The park is monitored by the local police and dogs must be licensed to go in the park. There are houses on one side of the park, and their are a couple quiet zones that need to be respected. There is also a "dinky-dog" play area within the bigger park specific to the little ones who wouldn't fare well the the danes, labs and pits... All in all this is a terrific place for people and their dogs- A note of caution- small children may be frightened when the park is full, as the dogs are excitable and tend to run. Strollers for infants and toddlers are not allowed-
Pros: Wide open spaces for dog play and investigation
Cons: some dog parents don't watch their dogs as well as they could

Fun for the dogs
posted 6 years ago
The Soldan dog park is a very nice place. It has woods for dogs to run through and well packed trails for owners to walk along. The fencing is tall and very sturdy. There is a lake in the middle for the doggies to swim. There is an area for small dogs too, but a lot of people still bring them into the main area. One downside is sometimes people don't really pay attention to what their dogs are up to and ensuring good behavior. This also means that not everybody picks up after their dogs. Another downfall, at least for last summer, were the bees. Over by the bathrooms, people were often getting stung.
Pros: secure, well organized
Cons: irresponsible owners
