The Lake Idamere Dog Park is an off-leash dog park in Tavares, Florida. This dog park is a section of the forty-five acre Lake Idamere Park which has been reserved for dogs to be exercised off their leashes. Lake Idamere Park is a favorite place for residents and visitors alike to hike nature trails, go canoeing or kayaking or enjoy a family picnic. Fur children are welcome in all areas of the park on a leash no longer than six feet in length as long as they're kept away from the playgrounds and sports fields.
This dog park in Tavares is a well shaded woodland nook which has been securely fenced to allow pups some safe off-leash time. The off-leash areas have been well thought out, and miniature fur babies weighing under thirty pounds have their own compound to play in. Agility equipment distributed throughout both runs gives pups of all sizes extra diversion and helps distract their attention from birds and squirrels.
Chasing or stalking any wildlife which makes an impromptu appearance is prohibited in the Lake Idamere Dog Park. Pet parents using the off-leash facility should familiarize themselves with the dog park rules which are posted on the fence at the entrance. This is a wooded area and smoking is strictly prohibited. Picking up poop is essential to help maintain the natural balance of the environment.
Pet parents can use the bags supplied or bring their own; it doesn't matter which so long as there's no poop left on the ground. If being in the woods brings out the wolf in a pup and it displays aggressive behavior to other dog park users, either four or two-legged, it should be leashed and returned to domesticity. If there are children accompanying pet parents in the off-leash area and they don't behave in the correct way for a dog park, they also should be removed and taken home.
