Glad Milton finally has a dog park! I've been to many in Pensacola and this one is better than all of them, except that it doesn't have much shade. It's not usually very busy, but can be on the weekends. People don't follow the rules (not leaving dogs unsupervised, no more than 2 dogs per handler, no one in the park except dogs and handlers) and frequently kids from the playground nearby come in to pet the dogs and end up getting jumped on or run over by the dogs. Still better than the parks in Pensacola. I've seen fights happen because of owners bringing in dogs that should not be in the park, but you'd have a hard time finding a dog park that has zero fights. A lot of rednecks come here with their dogs and then don't keep an eye on them so you have to watch out for that too. Other than that it's a great park and my dog always has a good time, the agility equipment is fun and the watering stations are a nice touch.
