Dog parents understand the importance of finding a great local dog park. Dog parks are a great resource for your furry friend to run to his heart’s content, interact with other dogs, sniff new things, and buddy up to humans in attempts to gain cookies. It is also a great place for pet parents to meet like-minded neighbors and share fur-children stories! We’ve put together a list of the best dog parks in Tallahassee, FL to help you find a spot with the amenities, space, and cookie-dispensing humans that your pup is looking for!
- Tom Brown Dog Park: This Tallahassee dog park has two separate fenced areas to accommodate both small and large dogs. Double gate entry ways separate this off-leash dog park from its larger Tom Brown Park. There are water fountains for both pets and people. There is a picnic area for guests in both shaded and sunny areas. Each fenced in area is grassy with a few sandier areas. Disposal bags and trash cans are conveniently located next to one another at the entrance of both the small and large dog areas.
- San Luis Dog Park: San Luis Dog Park is a great open area for your dog to run around and play off leash. This dog park is a single large fenced area for both small and large dogs located within San Luis Mission Park. The dog park is mostly sand with lots of trees, but it can get muddy after rain. There are water fountains for both pets and people. If your pup still has energy after playing with her pals, leash her up and explore the trails behind the dog park!
