If you are looking for a place where your dog can get his early exercise and ample socialization, Bill Dickson Dog Park in Pensacola is one of the best places to go to as it is clean, fenced, and well-kept. Although not as big as other parks, it still has enough room for your dog to run around. The dog park has two separate, large and gated areas, one for large dogs and another for smaller dogs. This helps keep the peace and keeps small dogs out of harm’s way.
There are picnic areas throughout the park so human parents can sit back, relax, and maybe read a book while watching and supervising their fur babies. There are two water fountains with different heights, one for smaller dogs and another for larger dogs, so your pooch can stay well dehydrated while enjoying himself. However, the water fountain is outside the fence, so you need to put your dog back on the leash in order to use the water fountain.
Although the park provides scooper bags, it is best to bring your own because it can sometimes run out and surely you would not want to leave your dog’s waste for other people and dogs to step on. The park has different types of ground; sand, dirt, and grass, which makes playtime interesting for dogs. There are plenty of surrounding trees so there is sufficient shade when it gets too hot in the afternoon. There is a restroom in the park, so you need not worry in case you need to go to the toilet.
Your dog must be up to date on his vaccinations and must have his rabies tags in order to enter the park. Dogs in heat are also not allowed in the park. Parking is available for those who would like to bring their cars.
