The Villages Administration Office at 352-751-3939 says that Dog Parks are the responsibility of the Recreation Department at 352-674-1800.

The Villages allows two domestic animals per home, and yet hasn't provided adequate dog parks.

I would investigate this myself except I have to take my two dogs to Doggie Doo Run Run, a private dog park 3 minutes from The Villages, which is huge, and has grass! Only $25.00 per month, it's a bargain. I think it is at least ten fenced acres with large trees for shade. Oh, and it's a great chance to meet other wonderful dog owners.

We second this! There are so many new homes being built south of 466A and so many more planned. It would be great if TV would set aside a small parcel for all the dogs that will certainly be coming to TV as well. When the Sanibel Pool opened we asked the Rec Department representatives about any plans to open a dog park and they said, "not at this time!" This group is a good start to a real problem. Thanks

I would love to see a really nice, large dog park built that would rival DDR. There are so many dogs and their owners in TV I am sure they would appreciate it.
What is the name of the dusty dirty dog park? My dogs are long haired, large and light colored so there is a potential for a whole lotta mess I don't need if I use that park. I am just asking so I can avoid it when I check out the parks (I have a list and directions to all of them).
I am not in the villages now either but I plan on becoming very active when I am.

The Paradise Dog Park as far as I know still has very little grass. I have not been there for a few months but assume that it's still rather dusty. Not enough sunlight gets through the trees so that the dog urine can evaporate.

The grounds around Paradise Lake are though a fun place to walk your dog. There often seems to be more dogs and their owners near that lake than actually in the dog park.

Thank you. Good to note.

I agree with Nonie about the Doggie Doo Run park. It would be a great model for future parks within TV. Guess it would be hard to copy Doggie Doo Run because of it's size. My dog really enjoys Doggie and I enjoy meeting the people and their dogs.

P.S. Good idea to vote on your choice.
