Parks are one of the few places where your canine family member can enjoy an outing, too. Some parks are pet friendly, and some have gone straight to the dogs. Dog parks are enclosed parks with features designed especially for your pet. They usually include grassy stretches for ball and Frisbee play, and there may be agility course elements, like ramps, jumps and tunnels. There are also low, dog-friendly water fountains and shady areas for cooling off after some serious play. Some dog parks even have splash pools, lounging benches, and separate areas for large and small dogs.
