St Petersburg and Dog Parks

St Petersburg loves dogs

 St Petersburg was named the top city in Florida and 7th in the United States for dog parks. Several of my posts have talked about how dog friendly downtown St Petersburg is. The dog parks are located in various parts of the city: North Shore Park, Crescent Lake, Kenwood, Coquina Key, Walter Fuller and Lake Vista. 

The Trust for Public Land surveyed cities with at least 100,000 people and found 569 off-leash dog parks. Six of these are in St. Pete.  Dog parks are the fastest growing type of new public parks. The number of dog parks nationally has risen 34% in the last 5 years.

This information is taken from Mayor Foster’s Weekly Forecast dated January 13, 2012.
