Palm Beach Gardens
Lilac Street Dog Run
Located on Lilac Street, east of the baseball field at Palm Beach Gardens High School.
This one-acre park offers two park benches, a 6-foot chain-link fence. There are future plans for shade trees, water fountains for both pets and people and picnic tables.
"This park is small, and it does not have separate area for small and large dogs. My 2 jacks usually play with any size dog at the beach, but since going to this Lilac Park, my smaller Jack Russell is now afraid of large dogs."
(This reader added she would not return to this park because of aggressive park goers and their aggressive dogs.)
Web Mistress Note: We have heard there may soon be construction on a larger dog park, about 2-3 acres. Sources said one of the sites being considered is close to the city's tennis courts off 117th Court North, west of Central Boulevard. We will attempt to keep you updated about this matter.
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 Palm Beach Gardens area, please contact FloridaPets.net.
