Lake Gregory Regional Park Dog Park is on the South Shore (including a little one for tiny guys), but the real fun is the 2.7-mile fitness trail. Dogs must be on a leash. Lots of dogs hike the lakeside trail (many swimming as they go) so there is a lot of scent to keep your 4-legged entertained. Ducks, loons and a couple of giant cranes are at the water's edge, and ground squirrels are along the interior, so there is a lot of visual action for Fido, too. See Details
