Great park to run and take your dogs to! All sidewalk trail! They have water fountains for the dogs and people. If your dogs can swim there's plenty of water for that! Only con is not much shade so if you can stand the heat go for it! I'd recommend it for a later fall run! I appreciated the memorial for all of the armed forces for the people who served from Watauga too!
Wonderful. Peaceful. Took my kids and they really enjoyed seeing all the cute ducks and the beautiful water. The whole trail has lighting and I'm sure a walk after dark would be just as beautiful. They also have a few mini play areas so if you want to stop and let the kids play it's very easy.
