1. Mount Dora Dog Park
Located behind the IceHouse Theater parking lot on Unser Street. The Grand Opening ceremony for this dog park was June 30, 2007.
"This is a city owned park in the larger city Lincoln Park recreation area. Nicely grassed. Benches. 3 separate fenced areas (small, medium, large dogs with double-gated entry). Water in each area; Mutt Mitts supplied. Restrooms across street at Baseball Fields. Large parking lot. Room to expand. Open dawn to dusk daily."
2. Downtown Mount Dora
Update 05-09-13: Despite a report a few years ago from a reader who reported the downtown area non pet friendly during the annual Christmas Walk, another reader who lives nearby recently reports,
"I have taken my 70 pound golden retriever down there many times. Businesses often have bowls of water laid out and I see many dogs walking around. Also, most of the restaurants down there with outdoor seating more than welcome dogs and will give them bowls of water when they dine there."
NOTE: We can't visit every area on a regular basis, so if you have information about any dog parks or beaches, or any other animal recreation facilities, in the Mount Dora area, please contact FloridaPets.net.
