I recently went to spend some time at Bull Creek with my dog. It's a beautiful place and a nice walking park. My only compaint is many of the dog owners simply cannot or choose not to control their dogs and let them run up to other people and other dogs.

My dog and I were standing on one of the overlooks about 10 ft  above the water when another dog twice her size ran up at her. She proceeded to back up since she was scared. She slipped off the ledge and fell about 5 feet hitting a rock shelf, then fell another 5 feet into the water below. Fortunately she was ok and had no injuries.

I won't go back there. If you choose to take your dog, be careful.
