Van Valkenburg Park has 42 acres, and it's a designated Off-Leash Area (OLA) for dogs to have the freedom to run around to their hearts' content. The dogs do have to wear a colored collar that changes every year and the owners have to pay a small fee. There is a separate area for small dogs to play in away from the bigger dogs. In addition to the OLA, there are softball/baseball diamonds complete with bleachers, a concession stand, and scoreboards. It is a great place to soak in nature.
