Leonia Dog Park/Lakeview Park This is a lovely dog friendly park with 2 picnic tables under an awning. There is a large area including a hill. There is water access and a metal bowl. There seems to be a conflict with some neighbors as there are signs across the street in front of PVT homes stating "stop unleashed dogs in the park". As long as you go during posted hours and limit the dog barking there seems to be no conflict. Many nice dogs and owners!
I have px available but cannot figure out how to post them!
