Open all year round, has been closed in past due to flooding.
The north loop is fully paved and a great place to bring your dog on leash. The entrance of Dames Park is located at the north loop with several parking areas, two shelters and bathrooms. In the center of the loop is a football field. On weekends in the fall, this area can get very busy with Renegade footballers.
When the park is not being used for sporting events, this area has plenty of room for all visitors. The path is wide enough for users to pass easily. Due to the width of the trail, there is limited shade.
