Tampa Dog Parks and Outdoor areas
Tampa has a mix of dog parks and dog beaches that are completely fenced. People use to congregate in the area at one park to let their dogs run off leash. Such large crowds gathered that the city began to open legal dog parks. The City of Tampa as well as Pinellas County departments of Parks & Recreation was very helpful in providing information about these off leash parks and beaches. Here is a link to the City of Tampa's Dog park rules.
