The Mayor Roscoe Warren Dog Park in Homestead, Florida has two gates areas for furbabies, one for dogs over 25 lbs and another for small and timid dogs. This helps prevent fights, as well as injuries which are both very likely when larger pooches play with smaller dogs. Although some injuries are mainly because of play and not intentional, it is best to separate large canines from smaller ones.
There are restrictions for canines in the park as they are not allowed everywhere, just in the dog section, the nearest parking lot, and directly on the designated, gated area. Aside from the bark park, some of the other amenities are a soccer field, volleyball area, basketball court, and a cute and small gazebo where people can go to for shade and protection from the weather.
The Mayor Roscoe Warren Dog Park has restrooms, so people who need to use the toilet need not go very far to do so. There is plenty of water so being dehydrated is never a worry. People who go to the park are friendly, their beloved pooches are well-behaved, and the park is rarely full, so every visit is guaranteed to be enjoyable.
Well-maintained, clean, and landscaped, the Mayor Roscoe Warren Dog Park is a favorite spot of locals. The considerable park has a fantastic trail where you can walk, jog or run with your dog in tow but only if he is on a leash. There are several pavilions equipped with tables and barbecues where families and friends can have picnics.
Remember not only to pick up after your dog but also to throw garbage away from picnics correctly. The park just started operating in 2011, so all the equipment is relatively new. The manicured, grass areas maintain a “lowland” zone to respect the local near-Everglades environment. The only concern for pet parents is the fact that the fence is quite low, so it is easy for large dogs to jump over it.
