For years, dog owners have been coming here to let their dogs off-leash and play with each other on the lush grass under the shady trees. Since the city noticed that people have chosen this as a perfect spot for a dog park, new improvements were made in 2019! These improvements include two raised dog washing stations with two bays if you have to wash two dogs at once, additional “doggy and me” water fountains, and additional doggie bag stations for when your pets go “number two.”Here at Brookhaven Park, you can let your dog’s off-leash so they can roam freely around the park and meet new friends. The multiple trees and grassy lawns make it an ideal location for dogs and kids alike.Why the Whole Family will Love Brookhaven Park Brookhaven Park might be dog-central, but what’s great is that the whole family will love hanging out here as well.
