    Great dog park!

    We visited the park a handful of times with our standard poodles while my husband was working in that area. We loved it. Lots of shade, HUGR compared to other parks we've been to, clean, friendly people/pets every time we went, water fountains for dogs and people, toys/obstacles, hose. And right next door to a bathing/grooming place that I wish I had been able to visit while there. Definitely recommend, however, as with ANY dog park....PLEASE make sure your dog(s) aren't sick, have current vaccines, pick up after them, and are not overly aggressive FOR EVERYONE'S ENJOYMENT. ;-)

    No Words!

    That dog park should get not any bone. Very dirty park. It seems nobody takes care of the park. Dog poop allover, broken water hose, glass pieces and a lot of other junk. Stay away if you want your dog not hurt.........

    Shady park in HOT Central Florida

    I have been coming to this well shaded park for years. There is a water mister to keep both humans and pets cool. There are several water bowls, benches and shade. I would only come on weekends when there is a larger crowd as the area not the safest. I feel safe on the weekend with other dog owners there, bu less so when it is not as crowded.

    Pretty nice old dog park

    Sanford says The Paw Park is the oldest in Central. It was first established in 2001. It has some good reviews from national magazines.

    It's compact, with parking on three of the four sides. Each entrance is a double entrance, and the east entrance includes an entrance into a small dog play area off to the side.

    In the center is a big downed tree and a community bulletin board. There is a walkway that wraps around the park, and there are benches and shade trees.

    But the dogs are more interested in each other...

    It's a nice little park. There were places for the dogs to climb, there were water areas and even a time out area.

    My only complaint is the dirt. There were several dirt patches, and where there's dirt there's a dog who wants to jump and roll in it. The little doggy pool was full of dirty water, and I don't think there was anything that could be done to get that pool clean.

    Conveniently though, there's a dog wash and groomers right across the street.

    There's more. You can read it on my blog at
