The Miko's Corner Playground is a dog park in Tucson, Arizona. This Tucson off-leash area is located in the city's Gene C. Reid Park and gets busy during evening exercising hours as it is popular with local residents. For handlers arriving by vehicle, the parking lot is conveniently next to the dog park entrance although this does not mean dogs can be let out of cars without their leashes.
For reasons of safety, and to prevent causing any traffic accidents, dogs need to be leashed until in the staging area. This dog park in Tucson has a boundary fence of decorative metal railings which encloses both the large and small dog section. Owners of small dogs can rest assured the railings are close enough together to prevent even the most expert canine Houdini from getting through them.
Both the large and mini pup off-leash sections are surfaced with compacted dirt. While the dirt surface is easily maintained, it can be dusty in dry, hot weather which means dogs do run the risk of getting a bit dirty. If it has been raining, expect some very muddy paws. The dirt surface also encourages dogs to dig, which is not a problem as long as their owners re-fills all the holes.
This Tucson dog park is well equipped with poop scooping equipment as well as poop bags. All pet owners using the Miko's Corner at Playground at Gene C. Reid Park are not only asked to clean up their pups poop but any stray poop they spot as well. Joining in with the scooping mission helps keep the dog park in tip-top condition for everyone to enjoy.
There is a strict rule in place at the dog park that states dogs and children under ten are not allowed to be left in the off-leash areas unattended. All children, as well as four-legged fur babies, should be closely supervised at all times. Dogs should be responsive to their owner's voice commands and children to those of their parents as chasing dogs and misbehaving in the off-leash areas is out of bounds.
