The Anclote Gulf Dog Park and the Land O' Lakes Dog Park are both fenced in facilities where the dogs can run free and play with others but there is a partition to separate the smaller and larger dogs. There are fire hydrants, tunnels to run through and a few covered benches for their owners to watch them play. A drinking fountain for the dogs is available but we highly recommend bringing your own dog bowl so there aren't any issues with dogs that may be sick. The park has a dog-poop station to supply you with bags to pick up after your animals. We gladly accept plastic bags or donations so we can purchase them for your pets. All dogs are to be licensed and vaccinated. Please follow posted "Park Rules".
The Land O' Lakes Recreation Complex accepts donations of towels, sheets, and blankets which are donated to Pasco County Animal Services and we also accept dog food, medication, flea treatment and shampoo which is donated to the Suncoast SPCA.
