Listed in Florida Dog Parks
- 427 South French Avenue, Sanford, FL 32771, USA
The oldest off-leash dog park in Central Florida! It celebrated its Grand Opening on May 5, 2001, and is located at 427 S. French Avenue, in Sanford, Florida. The Paw Park of Historic Sanford™ has since inspired several other Central Florida communities to establish their own off-leash dog parks (but it is not associated with any of those other dog parks).
The Paw Park of Historic Sanford™ is located in the former “Jaycee Park”. This site became a city park in 1886, borders Sanford’s historic downtown district, and is well shaded with mature oak trees. Features include a small dog alternative play area, a time-out area, bag dispensers for disposal of dog waste, park benches, dog showers, self-watering bowls, historic lighting, and a community bulletin board (which includes information on dogs available for adoption from area shelters). It is handicapped accessible, and has a double gate entrance for safety. The park is open from 7:30AM to 8:00PM daily.
