  • If I was a dog I would want to be brought here! Not only could dogs get exercise but so can humans by walking around the perimeter of the area. I only wish my dog was able to go there, but when he did...  read more »
  • This is a wonderful dog park that is clean, has shade, a dog bath, water for dogs, doggie bags, and 2 sides for large and small dogs. 
  • Barkley is peaceful, large, hilly and equipped doggy park w lake and pretty landscape. A perfect spot for doggy exercise and socializing. 
  • The park is beautiful and plenty of room to run, however when I arrived in the large dog area there was a group of older ppl with their dogs and when we walked over the group of dogs surrounded and pinned my dog to the ground, a 4 month old puppy, he is a larger dog, but still a puppy, the other dogs may have intended to play, however one dog in particular was highly aggressive and my dog has a bite wound on his inner leg.When the owner came over he expressed how friendly his dog is, I said growling and biting is not friendly. Another lady needed to restrain her dog because he was growling at my dog, she explained her dog gets jealous, but at least she restrained him. This group left the park and a couple of nice ppl and their dogs came. The man explained when he sees the man with the light brown/tan colored dog he leaves the park as he's personally seen the dog attack , and one time it was a puppy. As mine is. I also got the same story describing this dog,from a lady who came later, possibly mixed with pit bull but with a long tail. Description for identification purposes, because all pit bulls I've been in contact with before have been friendly.The lady said he's notoriously aggressive with other dogs and the owner doesn't care. Not sure what the reporting process is, but please be aware if you attend this park.
  • Whenever I travel to Jacksonville Beach with my dogs I love to take a break from I-95 and stop at this park. It is well worth the extra time driving west on 44, because this is one of the finest off leash parks in Central Florida. There's plenty of shade under the big oak trees and more than enough picnic tables and park benches. The county staff maintains the grounds, pond, and restrooms well. You can even wash your dog before you leave the park. It's a great place to walk, exercise your dog, and relax.
  • I used to drive to this dog park every so often when I lived in Daytona. It is one of the, if not the, best dog parks I've ever visited. It's huge! It has lots of trees scattered around, and hills which lead down towards a large pond at the center of the large dog area. It's beautiful and everybody was always very nice. It's a great place to take your pups for exercise and for yourself to relax. (((My pups and I have visited over a dozen dog parks and beaches at the time of this review.)))
  • Great dog Park ! The best. Never seen a dog park as nice as this one ANYWHERE IN RHE WORLD !!!
  • This is the best dog park in the area. We've been there several times in the past few months, our dog loved it because of the space she could run freely. The small dog park is empty sometimes and theres some cool spots to play with your dog in there as well (as long as there are no small dogs). Definitely worth the 30 minute drive from Daytona to go here a couple times a month.
