Dog Parks in General Border Collie Discussion Posted February 16, 2009 · Report reply The town I live in has a dog park but we have never been as it is a small wire fenced area no grass no bushes etc. just dirt. The area I live in as some great parks and other areas for walking and everytime I drive by the dog park it just looks sorry and I am always jellous when I hear of other dog parks. That said I would trade where I live for where my mother lives for dog walking, she is on the Kent coast (UK) and you can walk dogs down the beach and footpath off lease they just have to be under control, plus there are other common type areas where dogs can go off leash. I always think of England being much more dog friendly.
