I only tried Dogwood because I had a Groupon. I live at the beach and own property on the west side so I never saw a reason to pay to go to a dog park...until DOGWOOD! It is simply one of the best finds I have made in Jacksonville in a long time. It's impeccably clean and plenty of trees to provide shade from the hot Florida sun. My pooch Baylee is a lab and she has never been in better shape since we found Dogwood. She lives in their lake. I love going and talking to other dog owner - it's social and fun for both owner and pet!
