Enterprise Dog Park offers rustic outing
The new Enterprise Dog Park is open at 2671 Enterprise Road. More rustic than other dog parks in the area, it is constructed on a 20-acre tract that is nearly two-thirds wetlands, with woods and saw palmettos on the 7.5 acres of uplands. The park offers two fenced areas: an acre-plus agility course with exercise equipment on the northeast corner of the property; and a larger enclosure with an 8-foot-wide, wheelchair-accessible trail flanked by native plants. Big and small dogs will be together and both enclosures will have fountains, doggie bags and trash receptacles. A covered picnic area with two tables, a water fountain for dogs and one for people, and a hose for washing off dogs is near the lot. Managed by the Clearwater Parks and Recreation Department, Enterprise Dog Park is open daily from sunrise to sunset. For information, call (727) 562-4800.
