Visiting my in-laws recently in Brandon, a suburb of Tampa, Chloe and I were both happy to discover an excellent dog park in the nearby suburb of Seffner-Mango. I particularly liked it, of course, because it has an enormous small ‘n’ shy area, but it has many other positives to tell you about. It’s very large — 5 acres in total — and it’s thoroughly fenced and gated. The small dog area has its own pavilion for shade, as well as a number of grown trees. There are multiple water fountains and a kiddy pool for the dogs to splash in. Poop bags are provided, as are trashcans.
The dogs who visited while we were there (and we went a couple of times) were good-natured, as were their owners. Chloe will always love the San Juan Island dog park best in the world, but the Mango Dog Park is a real contender.
