New Hope Trails and Dog Park

The off-leash trails and dog park area features over 5 acres.  The space is mowed frequently to reduce burrs.  More than half the space is cleared of brush trees and weeds, leaving a nice open space for frisbee and catch.  Hiking trails in the natural area provide a wonderful spot for you and your dog to explore nature.  This area of the park contains 4 – 5 ft. boundary fencing.  Since a creek runs along one side of the property, please use caution in this area, as mother nature likes to take down the fence.
