The Happy Tails Dog Park is located toward's the back of the park. All dogs must be leashed while walking through the park. It's a fenced-in play area just past the tennis courts. 

On-Site is the Oscar Lingle Nature Trail. We walked the trail one day that we were there. The trail could use some work. Several areas were completely over-grown.

There are several public parks in Lower Paxton Township and all are nice. Some have more ammenities than others. Kohl Memorial Park is close to our home and in our honest of the nicest to visit. We like to take our own brown bag lunch and enjoy it at the park. During the weekdays it's not too busy...on the weekends it can get busy if atheltic games are going on. Overall, a very nice park for you and the family to visit.
