Nice, But...

This park was nice when we first started going to it but lately looking tired: several bare spots in small dog area which turn to and stay muddy. No shade trees. Large dog area in better shape.

Clean with fenced in area, but...

It was very clean with a separate small and large dog area. However, there are no trees and in Florida it is too hot to be there with your doggie for more than 15 minutes during the day if there is no shade for them :(
So I am still in search of a dog park in the Fort Lauderdale area where I can sit and read while my doggie runs around in the shade.

my two experiences

The first time, my dog was a little unwelcome. But there were too many girl dogs and my dog was inappropriate in public. The second time, every dog was much more friendly but my dog was the little lady's man again. Besides that we had a great time.

Hello. (July 07, 2009)

I am the youngest of the children of Gary B. Jones, and I am very proud to know that he is respected with this park. It's been a pleasant park and I hope more and more people come to experience it. :)
