The times we've visited people here are friendly, always chatting, and are responsible dog owners. Granted, we tend to come during what are probably off peak hours since we don't live within the neighborhood. We've heard from one of our Instagram friends that as regulars, they've experienced more than one unpleasant encounters, which is unfortunate.
Dog parks are a funny thing. My humans used to take me our local neighborhood one everyday when I first joined the family. After a while they realized it wasn't really necessary; us doggies don't always get along, and the humans seem even more particular about each other than we are! Plus, the humans figured out that I'm best behaved when off leash and in open space, when I can decide when to avoid confrontation or when I want to engage in play. I think sometimes I feel trapped inside dog parks.
The best part about this park is actually outside the fence.
If you follow the trail alongside the dog park, it takes you to the stairs that lead directly to the rock outcroppings on top, where you get the most magnificent views of the city.

There's no official leash rules here but best to stay on leash if your pup tends to wander off since this is still in the middle of the city and your pup could potentially run downhill straight into the busy streets or into people's backyards. It's only a short uphill hike anyways.
