    Amazing place for your dogs

    By far this is the best dog park in Orlando. Plenty of areas for them to play or even swim. Nice doggie showers, water fountains are available as well.

    Great Swimming Spot but gets VERY Crowded

    It's impossible not to give this spot 5 bones given that it's one of the few officially dog-friendly swimming areas I've heard of in Central Florida (although I am new to dog ownership here). And it's very dog-friendly. There's a dog washing station so you can clean up after and lots of shady spots with benches, also a covered picnic area with 2 tables. There are restrooms but no showers. The thing you must be aware of is that is place is VERY popular and on a hot weekend day there will be a LOT of dogs, many of them running about rather wildly. And with this many dogs, there are a few irresponsible or unobservant owners that leave poop. However I spotted only 3 piles on a very crowded Saturday so I'd say mostly people are being responsible. My take away for next time: wear my swim suit so I can play ball more efficiently. I did not see humans swimming, but it's hard to stay out of the water if your dog likes to play in it! Oh, and of course, gators: yes, there are gators in this lake. But the bustle of people should keep them away. If you go when it's very quiet (say early morning weekday) I'd be cautious, especially with a small dog. I have heard from a resident they try to get rid of the big gators.

    Large and Shady.

    We frequently have attended this dog park. Depending on the time of year, it's either poorly maintained or pretty decent. Just depends. near the lake it's very muddy for obvious reasons so just plan to wear appropriate shoes. the trails are fun for the dogs, but have taken a hit since the hurricane. the biggest problem at this dog park, are the owners who spend all their time on their phones not paying attention to their dogs - who are either being aggressive and warned off by other dog owners, or who won't pick up their dog's waste. The latter being the biggest problem. Lots of pavilion space for seating, and there is enough space to get away from problem dogs if needed.

    How disappointing to live in a city that doesn’t take care of their dog parks. This park was practically all dirt and if I brought my dogs here every day they would need daily baths. You can tell this park was an afterthought and no one is really interested in it’s upkeep. There is no separated area for small and big dogs and when you have dogs getting into fights it’s not reassuring. Furthermore, why put a dog park next to a lake and then not allow dogs to go swimming?

    Great park!

    Now only is the whole entire park fenced in, but there are trails to enjoy with your dog without fear of your dog running away. There's a beach for the dogs to enjoy as well. Sandy, so consider taking a towel to protect the car. Water fountains for dog are available as well as poop stations. Big enough to allow dogs to roam.

    I love this place

    I take my dogs here every weekend and a couple nights during the week. All I have to do is say "park" and they jump up and those tails start wagging. I have a question though. I got hurt really bad on November 29th when 2 siberian huskies came barreling into the back of my knees when they were playing. I'm wondering if anyone may have seen this accident or helped me when it happened? There were a lot of people around me. Unfortunately the owner of those dogs did not offer any information to me. You can reach me at I still go to this park on my walker for now but I can't wait until I can play with my dogs there!

    Been to a few parks here but this by far is the best. Very open and people are very friendly and on top of their dogs. Love this place.
