Out and About: Florida's Dog Wood Park

Out and About: Florida's Dog Wood Park

It's more than just a walk in the park for those checking out Gainesville's Dog Wood Park. From two swimming ponds to the "dog mountain" sand pile for digging and climbing, this doggie country club provides pups with a little of everything... plus swings and picnic facilities for their two-legged friends. If you don't want your pet to go home dirty, the 15-acre fenced park also has dog showers for muddy paws and self-service, warm water tubs along with two separate "dry dog" areas with no ponds or pools – perfect for those days when dealing with a less fresh dog isn't included on your agenda.

Don't worry, visitors, although Dog Wood has annual memberships $249 for one dog ($279 for up to three), it also offers a $9 day pass (plus $2 for each additional pup)... and park-issued tennis balls and frisbees. Now go fetch!

In Gainesville, there's a just as good park that's free and is only about three miles from Dog Wood. It's in the Squirrel Ridge Park off of Williston Road. Everyone who goes there is really nice, too.
