The small community of Winter Park, Florida, which lies about 6 miles north of Orlando, has always been a great way to escape the busy life in the big city. The town is surrounded by lakes and just has that village vibe not many places in America have anymore. Winter Park does not only lift the spirits of its human inhabitants; the animals of Winter Park feel right at home as well.
There are plenty of dog lovers in town. Winter Park, Florida, therefore, has its own off-leash dog park. Lake Baldwin Park is circled around a lake and has its own beach with pavilions, picnic areas, and a boat ramp. The park is a total of 23 acres in size and is a great way for dogs in Winter Park to run around and explore.
Another perfect place in Winter Park to walk the dogs is the Blue Jacket Park. This public park is 75 acres in size and a crowd favorite. Blue Jacket Park is the number one destination for joggers in town. Dogs are allowed, and more than welcome to run on a leash and the park has water fountains for dogs and their owners.
The talk of the town is the Winter Park Farmers' Market. This event takes place every Saturday morning. Dogs are welcome to join along as visitors browse across the booths filled with farm fresh goods, pots and plants, arts and crafts and more.
