Man, I would love to take my dog to a park like that! I can definitely see allowing children in a dog park that's so large and open. It's in the much smaller fenced in areas, like the 1/4 acre my town offers, that kids aren't a great idea.

That's a different sort of park from the fenced areas the OP talked about -- smaller enclosed areas in an urban/suburban setting.

But I have heard of such parks before.  Most often I've seen them referred to as "off-leash areas," rather than "dog parks."  Some of our large regional parks do allow off-leash (with firm voice command) in certain areas.  Mostly, such areas are well marked, but not fenced off.  Different sort of thing.

And the dogs hear "blah! blah BALL! blah blah blah!"   ;D   Great idea!

LOL! Yes, that is exactly what my dog heard!
