    Disappointed

    We drove all the way out here only to find that you have to have a pass to enter.

    Fenced in park

    The dog park is all fenced in. Gators can't get in it besides the gators are not walking around. The gators stay in the water.

    Gators?

    Good luck finding water in FL THAT DOESNT HAVE GATORS. NOTHING TO FEAR BUT KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR DOG.

    Small dog section

    I usually go there on the weekends with my little ones. Usually everyone there keeps an eye on thier fido but once in a while there is an owner that is more into socializing themselves then thier dog. Lately I have noticed a lot of new people and some extra piles building up. If I see someones dog going potty I just point it out and I expect the same if it was one of mine. I wish they had a few more agility props there. My little one loves to use them. The only thing I ask is if your dog is causing problems and starting fights you should be correcting that behavior and not ignoring it. Why should the people with the calm dogs have to deal with your out of control pet? Sign up for a training class somewhere or take your pet for a short walk before bring him or her in... that would be very helpful.

    straight.

    guy above me is retarded... your in south florida of course there is gators. Supervision is key, which you should be doing all the time btw. but gators will not just approach and attack. anyways, the park is beautiful and a great natural protected area :] .

    Great Open Park

    I was nervous taking my 8 month old Lab Chow, but I finally did last weekend and we have been back 3 times since. Friendly people, Friendly Dogs. I did see some piles of dog poop, but when I and the others that were there cleaned up after our dogs.

    GATORS

    Can't say much because I haven't taken my dog. Just a friendly warning...... GATORS, GATORS, GATORS. If you look at a map, this park borders the Florida Everglades. Many have told me they see gators in the lakes from time to time. I refuse to take my child to a bar-b-que to this park, and I keep more of an eye on him than I do my dog. What do you think?
