Thank You for This Park
Patti in Maitland
I couldn't believe this place the first time I saw it. Walking paths, a lake, bag dispensers, and a really neat bathing station. The people and dogs are friendly. My beagle needs a nap after an hour at FP. :-)
Best Park in Orlando
Sabrina in Orlando
My husband and I often bring our 3 year old GSD, it's a great park! We love the size of the park and the ability our dog has to go swimming in the lake and walk a small trail.
AMAZIBG park but it does have its issues
sara in mt dora
My husband 2year old son and 1 year old GSD. Go here quite frequently the only issue we've have has been from a couple of teens and there aggrestive pit bull(not saying that all pit bulls are mena, cause there NOT).

I was shown to Fleet Peeples by a very good friend of mine. Boy was I amazed. The people and their dogs were quite nice actually. I felt as though I was at the beach. My 2 Pugs had a ball playing with the large and small dogs. The people I met were very friendly and pleasant. I have no idea whatthis Bianca, Mary persons are speaking about. All the dogs get along regardless of size. Bianca how would you knpw there was poop in the water. Were you swimming in it ? Because there is a sign that says no swimming plus dogs don't poop in water People do, Hello. Oh and Mary sounds like the dog was trying to greet you and your pomeranian not acoste you. Sounds as though you need to entertain your dog in your own backyard for you yourself sound very anti-social. The people and the dogs at Fleet are very fun.Everyone had a smile and were not afraid to say hello or conversate. You too are probably anti-social or just were having a bad day like everyone else has said in the posts. anyhow, I definetly will be back because my dogs had a blast.

I have never been to fleets but I have heard a lot of good thing. My black lab use to go to dog parks all the time before we moved 8 hours away. Now his socialization has changed and I slowly wanted to get him back into being around other dogs . To avoid accident I am asking what times are best to go when the park doesn't have very many dogs there.
Best dog park in Florida!
Laurel in Orlando
Just want to say that I've been visiting the Fleet Park since 1986, and have NEVER seen any serious encounters between dogs! Sounds to me like "Bianca in Orlando" was not having a good day and wrote the message out of spite. Personally, I am retired now and was considering moving to the gulf, but after endless research, I cannot find a dog park in the entire state of Florida even a tad close to Fleet! As long as I have "my girls", I will NOT leave Orlando because of the absolutel JOY my girls have playing with their friends at the Fleet park! They LOVE Fleet park! Also, I have NEVER seen or heard personally of aligators! There is a warning sign there because it's the law they have to post the sign there because of the lake. However, I did see, but only once, a pair of friendly otters swimming in the channel in the lake. Wonderful surprise! I would bet money there is no better dog park in the entire state of Florida!..I've done the research..I know! Try it! Fleet has multiple clean water fountains for dogs and people, free poop bags, great safe pathways through the woods, showers, bathrooms, many chairs, benches, picnic tables, shade trees, boat launch, totally fenced in, including the entire wooded area, it's friendly, And it's totally free! The covered pavillions all have picnic tables and benches, and are a great place to rest a tad if it starts to rain. Rain doesn't stop the fun! Also, I should add, safe parking is never an issue. There are more than enough parking spaces available. Treat yourself and your four legged friend to a great day!
Our favorite place
Sandy in Winter Springs
Cannot say enough about this lovely park, it is huge, with a clean lake, sandy beaches, grassy areas and wooded trails for my dogs (and their humans) to explore. We have never seen problems with aggressive dogs in the 6 years we have been going. Most owners are great about cleaning up after their dog, volunteers clean up as well. On a nice day it is full all types of dogs and owners. Again, our favorite place.
Barbara in Altamonte Springs
Wonderful park. Lots of dogs just having a grand ole' time running free and happy! Wish I had known about it years ago. Highly recommended.

I have always wondered if there is a reliable source to stop foreclosure. We are living in an era where our natives are facing the worst ever economic downfall in American history. I am glad you made some really valuable points about foreclosures. _________________________________________ foreclosure freeze
Melissa in Kissimmee
I live in kissimmee fl and im looking for a great doggie park to bring my dog to and this park sounds great. Can anyone tell me if there is a fee or not?
Archie in Winter Park
This is a dog park not a people park. It is an outstanding theater for all breeds to act out their instinctive virtues and individual characteristics among their own. They come to play, exercise, meet, greet, bark, snarl, hunt , gather, swim, chase, fetch and love. They cannot pick up their own poop nor refrain from an accidental confrontation...that is the job of the people whom they bring along as their "best friends".
Violet can't wait to get out of the car!!
Sharon in Orlando
I can't even drive by the park with Violet without her going crazy---she has such an amazing time there. We are only here in the winter and I have not found anything like it up north. We enjoy it immensely and find everyone friendly, and considerate about cleaning up after their dog. Can't help but wonder if Bianca is really who she says she is or just someone who wants to take this part away from us????
Laurie in Orlando
Bianca - you must have been having a really bad day. Sorry for you. I recently moved here to the area and checked out many parks - not putting any of them down- a park to let your dog play free is great. I have to say my two dogs chose Fleet Peeples as their fave because they can swim and run the grass or in the woods and I can rinse or bathe them off before we head home.... I love it.
Love this park!!!
Joy in Orlando
Best place in Central Florida to bring dogs!! Lots of happpy dogs loving life!!! We have been bringing our dogs here for many years and hope to continue for many more!! Thank you to all the responsible pet owners who faithfully clean up after their pets!!
Teri in Winter Park
My dogs love this park. Not ideal for tiny dogs, but pure heaven for big dogs. Where they can run, swim, chase and even take a nice off leash walk in the woods. Watch for a gator that visits now and again, and if you go on weekends...expect there to be rude people there. Many forget to pickup after their pets. I go during the week...your best friend will love you even more!!!!
I love this park.
Brian in Hamilton, Ontario
Each year I travel to Florida. This park and the park & beach at DeSoto Park in St. Pete's Beach tops my list of dog parks. I just hope the City Council in Winter Park doesn't make it more difficult to use this wonderful park for people and their dogs.
nice place to take your dog
dave in Altamonte spring

Josh in Altamonte springs
I love this park! Peyton (my pup) will not go anywhere else because she loves to play with other friendly dogs, swim in the lake, and hike through the woods. Never had a bad experience or saw any owner who did not pick up after or watch their dog. Bianca is way off. P.S. Shouts out to Triton and Shelby!
A favorite for my dogs
Ginger in Saint Cloud, Florida
We JUST found this gold mine after living in Central FL for over 30 years. I can't believe we never knew it existed. My dogs ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! The other pet owners are wonderful - everyone was carefully watching their pets; it was clean, fresh water available, an area to bathe the dogs afterward. What a find. My dogs, who were both afraid of water, now excitedly run and tromp through the water because the excitement of the other dogs helped them overcome their fears. An incredible play-place for the dogs.
Michelle in Maitland
This is a place where we can take our dog and she can have hours of fun. Their is a lake to swim in as well as pleanty of place to run. They even have a little forest for the dogs to exsplore. We love this place
Jeff in Orlando in Winter Park
I have been going to Fleet Peoples since my dog was a puppy and have recently adopted a second dog. The the park is wonderful, people pick up after their dogs, there is rarely an owner who doesnt ensure their dog behaves and its a great place!! Bianca is not correct in her assessment. Keep the good reviews coming!
Peter in winter springs
Awesome park..great place for dog socialization many responsible owners. Been coming here over a year and have met many nice people and dogs. Glad its staying open.
Larry in Orlando
Bianca is probably from the group trying to rid the park of dogs. They often spread propoganda like the garbage she posted. Fleet Peeples is a great dog park. Dog owners do clean up after their dogs, there are rarely issues with aggressive dogs. The park is huge with plenty of room for the dogs to play in the water, run in the grass, or "hike" on the nature trails. Let's fight to keep Fleet Peeples Park dog-friendly!
Karen in Alpharetta, Ga
We had a great time! First time there, passing through town. The people and their dogs were absolutely wonderful!! It's fenced in and has a "dog shower" area. Will go again!
Kristina in Winter park
Our favorite place in Winter Park. At Fleet my boys 5 and 7 can chase and play with our dog Edgar at full throttle. Since we have a small back yard Fleet means everything to us.
Lindsay in Orlando, FL
The City of Winter Park is trying to turn Fleet Peeples Park from a dog friendly park back into a "people park with dog privileges." What's the difference? As of the 28th of February, the city of Winter Park will start enforcing the long-ignored on-leash hours of 10 am to 4pm weekends and holidays. The city is also remodling the complex in order to encourage families and picknickers to use the park and the lake for human-only enjoyment. If you are a dog owner and a user of Fleet Peeples Park- we want to know what you think about these proposed changes. Please fill out the survey below and PASS IT ON to your friends.

Absolutely great dog park--fresh water available for the dogs, lots of room to play, plenty of shade, and responsible owners!
Brian in Kissimmee
Great place to bring your pets! Only wish the "on leash" hours were a bit shorter..
Sabrina in Kissimmee, fl
awesome place to take you dog for a swim and a trail walk...
kelly in Winter park
This is a very large dog park,It seems to be pretty well cleaned up after as well.It is open to the lake,so if you have a dog that likes the water,be aware that they will be getting wet.I have a Lab ,10 month old neutered male 75lbs. .The only problem is some of the other dogs play really,really rough and can be somewhat aggressive.My dog loves to play with any dog,but not all the dogs here are neutered and that creates problems.If you get lucky enough to go when it's not too busy (EARLY morning) you will probably be fine. I wouldn't recommend weekends ,too much out of control activity.This park would be perfect if there was fenced off area for non-neutered males,they are just too aggressive and try to show dominance constantly.It is a beautiful large park,in a beautiful area
Great park but one issue
stefanie in altamonte springs
He absolutely loved running around off his leash and greeting all of the people and dogs and I loved the beautiful view of the lake. It may have been a one time problem or it may be seasonal but my dog picked up mites from this park. I just suggest rinsing your dog immediately before leaving the park and then giving him a good wash once at home. He (or she) will be dirty and sweaty from having fun anyway.
Great dog park
Steve in Orlando
We visisted for the fist time a few days ago and loved how large it was- however the size can sometimes make it difficult for other people to watch/control their dogs. A few large dogs ran around chasing my two smaller ones barking at them and pinning them down to the point that mine were squealing and I had no idea who owned the dog or where they were. However the park has lots of trails which is a great way to spend time with your dog off-leash without having to worry about other dogs.

Ii cannot imagine an experience like Bianca is talking about. She does not even sound like a "dog person" to me. I can bet she did not adopt. she doesn't "get it" if she is trying to put something like this down and take away the joy that my two boston terriers have at these dog parks.
Great Place, just be careful with smaller dogs
Ed in Orlando
Fleets is a really nice place to bring your dog. The area is huge and your dog will have plenty of open area to run and play with the other dogs. There is a nice lake for them to cool off and swim and catch balls and sticks which are usually on hand. Just be aware that there is no segregation between large and smaller dogs and just because one person has never seen violence between a small dog > big dog doesnt mean it doesnt happen. My 25lb Boston has been attacked twice going there by much larger dogs showing domination, and like one of the other reviewer stated, the owner did nothing...I had to free my puppy from the jaws of an attacking dog. I would love to bring my dog to this park but I don't want risk injury or pay for an expensive pet bill because people with aggressive dogs want to bring their dogs to have fun too. I am not knocking the place, the place is really great place and dogs have a blast but if it was segregated I would give this park 5 bones. Just be careful :)
not for smaller dogs
Lori in Winter Park
This is a great park if you have large dogs but I won't be taking my 10 lb. pomeranian back ever again unless they make a section for smaller dogs. As soon as we got into the park I was greeted with a large boxer/pit mix that wouldn't leave my dog alone and that wouldn't stop jumping on me and we had no clue who own the dog because no one did anything about it. I had to pick up my dog because I didn't feel she was safe and we left. Which is a shame because we were looking forward to having a good time. And just because someone doesn't see any encounters between dogs doesn't mean it doesn't happen. Its a dog park and just like every other dog park everyone should keep a good eye on their dog which at this park it doesn't seem like people watched their dogs..
Mary in Winter Park
My family and I used to bring our dog to this park, usually once every few months. However, we will NEVER bring our dog there again because he was brutally attacked by two dogs while their owners stood by doing nothing. I was forced to try to pull 2 70 pound dogs off my dog, got scratched and bitten in the process, and all the owners could say was "wow, my dog has never done that before." Well, after speaking to other people at the dog park, apparently one of the owners WAS on notice of his dog's vicious propensities. It's disgusting to think what would have happened had I not been close by. Bottom line - be wary if you go to this park. The dogs and people are quite rough around the edges.
Bianca in Orlando
2009-We just came home from Fleet Peeples Park and it has become a filthy place. Poop on the beach, in the grass and in the lake water. A large dog accosted me and my dog, his owner did nothing. We left. Will not return.
