Masterson Station

20160423_155737

This is our dog park, well its the one in our neighborhood.  We hardly ever visit this park tho, because sadly its just two big open fenced fields, there is nothing special about this park and we always seem to meet a mean human while there.  There is so much more that Lexington could do to their parks.  We have tried to join in on the “yearly” meeting that the “Friends of the Dog Park” has, but it is just a bunch of drama and they never get anywhere positive with it.  😦

 

Type of Park: Fenced Off Leash Park

Surface: over an acre and just grass (mud when it rains)

Stimulating Activities: nothing, a few trees to pee on

Cooling: finally water has been put inside park, but they are at the other end of the park so you have to walk all the way to the back to get water.  A few trees on one side, other side HAS NO TREES, NONE for the huge acre plus area.  

Separate Areas: 2 sides, neither are designated (which causes drama)

Greenage: Waste station at entrance  and a trash can located in the middle of park.  Make sure and bring bags!

Human Comfort: 2 benches for the entire over an acre park (both sides are like this)

Location: Located past fair grounds in Masterson Station Park

Maintenance: no lights, open dawn to dusk

Membership: free to public

so sad that the dog park that is right in our backyard we have to give such a sucky rating too.
