Peoria’s third and newest community park, Paloma Community Park, provides a broad range of active and passive recreational activities to the entire community. At 85 acres in size, the new park can accommodate large numbers of people while maintaining social distancing and will draw residents from throughout the community to enjoy its many amenities.

On the Eastern end of this park there are three off-leash dog enclosures. They’re all very well maintained and rotated  between dogs under 35 lb and those over 35 lb, on a regular basis.  In addition, right next to the off-leash dog enclosures is the trailhead for a nice wide pretty level trail  that’s great for walking your furry friends.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Airedales weigh approximately 50-80 pounds, being active and agile enough to perform well, while not too small to function as a physical deterrent, retriever or hunter. Some breeders have produced larger Airedale Terriers, such as the ‘Oorang Airedale’, developed in the 1920s.

Ex-Army captain and Airedale breeder Walter Lingo’s monthly magazine “Oorang Comments”, stated that “When full grown your Airedale dog will weigh from forty to fifty-five pounds and if a female will weigh slightly less. This is the standard weight, but when required, we can furnish oversized Airedales whose weight will be from sixty to one hundred pounds.”

Because Lingo tried to fill orders for everyone, the Oorang strain size was never standardized. Airedales weighing from 40 to 100 pounds were produced, but for the most part they were approximately 50 pounds and 22 to 24 inches at the shoulder. In the United States, the male Airedales measure 40 to 70 pounds, with the Oorang strain typically in the 80 to 120 pound range.


He is swift, formidable, graceful, big of brain, an ideal chum and guard. …. To his master he is an adoring pal. To marauders he is a destructive lightning bolt.”
