ORLANDO POLICE DEPARTMENT By Kathleen Christiansen The dog park features two double-gated entryways to each yard, which help prevent escapes as well as allow some visitors to leave as others arrive without any difficulty. The yards are largely grass with some sandy patches. Trees and a pavilion on each side provide some shade, but the park is largely in the sun, so pack some sunscreen or wear a hat. To entertain canines, there are some toys scattered throughout the yards as well as agility equipment. Large visitors get a bigger tunnel and ramp than tinier pups, but the small dog area has one extra piece: a jump. Before leaving either yard, dirty dogs can head over to a pebbled area toward the front, where a wooden platform and hose serve as a washing station. The dog park is part of the larger Barber Park, which also features soccer fields, a playground, bathrooms, pavilions, grills, benches, picnic tables, a roller hockey rink, volleyball courts and paved paths. Pooches can be unleashed once inside either yard. Dogs are allowed throughout the rest of the community park but must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet. Free Amenities: Orlando Sentinel At the far right corner of Barber Park, visitors will find two fenced-in grass yards where dogs can meet other four-legged companions, explore and play. A few pieces of agility equipment challenge pups to test their skills, while a random assortment of toys makes for a fun-filled day. Plus, the popular park gets a steady flow of visitors, so pooches are bound to make new friends during a trip to Barber Dog Park. 3701 Gatlin Ave. Trump planning Mar-a-Lago visit for Presidents Day, advisory shows By Skyler Swisher He also attended a Super Bowl party that featured a performance by Florida Atlantic University’s marching band.
