Flossy’s Favorite: Desa ParkCity

Moving from a yard with a house (which is I’m sure how Flossy would describe it)  to an apartment has been an adjustment for our 3 year old golden retriever.  Our building is advertised as “dog friendly” but in reality it is “dog tolerant” at best.  There is no place for her to run free outside, and when we take her for walks we are relegated to using the service elevator and can walk her only in a few very specific areas of the complex.

While we still take her for walks several times a day, and give her lots of indoor playtime, we are always on the lookout for a good park to take Flossy for some outdoor fun.  Recently we headed over to Desa ParkCity, which friends had highly recommended as a great place for dogs, and happily this is definitely the case.

The park surrounds a huge man-made lake which is pleasant to walk around.

Not the friendliest sign, but hey, at least they provide disposal bags.

There are also nearby restaurants, a handful of which have outdoor/pet friendly seating.  But Flossy’s favorite spot was at the playground.  The playground is large and beautiful, and as you can imagine the place to be if you are around 5-12 years old.  All Flossy had to do was sit in the shade and as if on cue, a parade of new friends stopped by for a chat.

For a gentle giant like Flossy, all the attention was heavenly.

Of course, there was some cute competition. But there was plenty of love to go around.

As the sun went down and the heat retreated, the park became even more lively as more people came out to walk their pups and grab a bite to eat.

I definitely recommend heading out in the late afternoon when the heat is less intense.  Be sure to pack extra water for your pet.  This is a great spot for the whole family.  Enjoy!
