There's a ball field, play ground, rest... More

Florida has the cleanest, family (including the dog) oriented parks. Right in the middle of a busy neighborhood. A great place to escape to but also close enough to home.

Not many places to let your dog have free run in Florida. $150 fine if you take your dog on beach in Indian Rocks. This park has segregated runs for large and small dogs. Most owners and dogs very friendly

I walk with a friend during early morning hours. There is abundant wildlife and great bird watching! There is a dog park, a boat ramp, an observation tower and picnic pavillions. Really enjoyable rain or shine!
