So went to park. No parking unless you are a local resident. No good.

HikingGreat!

Managed to grab a parking spot on a Friday afternoon. This off-leash park is ideal for dogs, and both of mine had a blast! Hobbs Pond provides a swimming area for the pups, and there's also a large open field for meeting other doggos. Overall, this was a great hike for us humans and the dogs.

great place to take the pup on a hot day. trail leads to a water feature. if your dog is like mine and doesnt swim, the trail bits are nice and shaded for the most part. only thing is to heed the trail markers, because lots of spots end up becoming private property. otherwise a nice spot for dog walking.

Parking during COVID only for Weston residents. Huge pile of multiple bags of doggie poo at the entrance to the park, visible from the parking lot.

I love bringing my dog here since it’s off leash (usually but not with COVID19). Weston has strange rules for this park including that if you do not live in Weston you can’t park in the main lot on the weekends and now with the COVID19 outbreak they don’t want people who aren’t from Weston to use Cat rock Park... although many other towns border it as well. The other dogs at this park are usually nice, the people though.... I’ve had some interesting conversations.

Nice walk, especially for dogs to be off leash. Just before sunset it was beautiful.
