Does anyone know if there are any dog parks in the Warren County area. We're dog sitting for my daughter's greyhound. We don't have a fenced-in yard and greyhounds absolutely positively can't be let off their leashes, unless they're in a fenced area. He needs to work off some steam and I wish if there was a dog park close by.
thanks!!

No, more of a recreation area for dogs. Fenced in, sometimes with a pond or body of water for those dogs that like that.

My daughter has a greyhound we sit for sometimes. We don't have a fenced in yard. He loves to run - but we can't let him loose because if they spot something, once they start running, they may forget to stop and turn around and discover they don't know where they are (not exactly geniuses). Some dog parks have annual fees, or you buy 10 admissions and get your ticket punched or whatever. We've never been to one, but Murphy (the greyhound) has with his owners.

I wish there were one in the Warren County area.
