Dog lovers and dog moms will love this place: Jacksonville is home to one of the largest dog parks where puppies can run freely. Dog Wood Park is a 42-acres off-leashed dog park with a lake for swimming.
Dog owners and furry friends can have the best workout at this environmental friendly park. Dog Wood Park allows dogs to swim at the small lake, enjoy the obstacle-course field, and socialize with other dogs for only $11.
There is plenty of land for the dogs to run around and fresh water bowls to refresh. It offers the convenience and space to enjoy time with other dog owners and interact with other humans alike. There are pathways in the woods where you can walk with your dog and the swimming pond is a perfect spot for pooches after a heated workout.
You don't have to worry that your dog escaping the park as it completely fenced in and it is highly unlikely Fido will get lost. Staff is very attentive and will provide instructions in case your dog has a problem with another one.
Visitors need to sign in at the front desk before entering the park. You can buy a monthly membership for $37 or an annual membership for $275. Dogs can also take a bath after playing in the mud for $9. The bath includes brushes, towels, your choice of Lucy shampoo and ear cleaner.
The self-serve bathing offers warm water tubs and you can also find a FREE rinse station outside.
Dog Wood Park is located at 7407 Salisbury Road, Jacksonville, FL 32256.
