Lee County has some wonderful dog parks for those traveling with pets. Dog Beach on Lovers' Key is great for dogs who are well behaved off leash, but there is no fenced area. At Buckingham Park, you will find Barkingham Park with 2 fenced areas (1 for smaller, shy dogs and 1 for larger dogs), dog waste bags, water fountains for both people and pooches, a few benches to sit on and good shade trees. There is a new dog park in North Fort Myers that is purported to be even nicer than the one in Buckingham. You can get more information at the Lee County web site.
