The old fencing separating North Park from the parking area was scheduled to be replaced on September 23, 2009.

The 2 gates in North Park were replaced for easier access for the elderly and the handicapped but we will not be paving that entrance. A 10 foot wide gate for maintenance vehicles was also be installed.

This project was another major improvement to the dog park and was made possible by donations.

Winter Park Light 1/21/2011

An area light has been added to the Winter Dog Park that will offer some night-time security and make the area more user friendly in the evening. The winter hours for the park are 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Please obey these hours and respect the rights of the dog park neighbors. This light was made possible through the generous donations of park users and the hard work of the "Friends of the Dog Park."
