Sugar Hollow is a beautiful park but has become so "pet friendly" that we can't walk there without stepping in dog-doo and having loose dogs jump on us. There are leash rules and they've even fenced off large areas for dog runs, but some people with dogs think the dogs have precedent over tax-payers. Hubby is trying to build up strenght after a long bout with cancer, but can't enjoy the walk because he's afraid of dogs.

It is law that us dog owners must pick up after our dogs. I am sorry that there are some irresponsible dog owners who make the rest of us seem as though we don't care about leaving our dogs "mess" behind. I enjoy walking the trails with my dogs but I also pick up after my dogs.

On another note: The fenced area for the dogs is the bare minimum. I wish we had a nicer gate that we wouldn't have to worry about our dogs getting out and a taller fence seeing as my dog can easily jump out. There are no shade areas for the dogs, no water supply, no benches for the owners to sit down on, and no double gate. Only reason I will bring my dogs here is because the people who also come to the park. We have tried raising money to improve the dog area but with so many restrictions and lack of interest from possible donations its a lost cause. Needless to say I am not very fond of the area provided for the dogs and I will continue to look for a better park to take my dogs too.

As a return resident, I'm so thrilled about the park. Not only does it have the dog park, but it has a nice playground for my grandchildren. We have just recently started walking the trails, as my husband and I wanted a place to walk where you don't have to fight traffic.
I have not seen any pet waste, as I do pick up after our dogs too. The park as a whole has a lot to offer families.
We will continue to walk the trails, and having participated in cross country meets in high school bring back great memories.
