Dogs Playing Tug at Rotary Park

This is just one of the 28 dog & pet friendly places that we’ve compiled in our free eBook entitled: “28 Dog Friendly Places in and around the Cape” which is available at

dog park in Cape Coral.

With 2 separate fenced in areas for big dogs and small dogs, your pooch is sure to make friends quickly with fellow doggy buddies and their masters!

Drop by for a quick run inside the fenced in area, or take your pooch for a nice long walk inside the park, around the track, and even on the trails. It’s a perfect summer day when you can enjoy beautiful scenery, and a nice hike back to the pond area. Look for shaded areas with picnic tables where you and your pooch can take a break, listen to nature’s sounds, and look for critters.

The preserved area is gorgeous and cannot be developed, excluding the 9 acres of upland that a building, the dog park and the open areas currently occupy.

The 4,200 square foot environmental center is used for gardening and nature related classes, exercise classes, summer camp, and is home to the Burrowing Owl Festival and large native plant sales.It is also available to rent for small to medium sized gatherings, as long as you don’t mind partying with a few creatures!

A variety of small critters reside in the nature center including snakes, frogs, lizards and turtles. Stop by the new butterfly house donated by the Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife. While there you can view all the beautiful butterflies and plants from the outside of the house every day, pick up information on how to attract them to your yard, or take a tour every Friday from 9am-10am.

Volunteers, plants, and pot donations are welcome. Monetary donations are also being accepted by the Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife for maintenance of the butterfly house.

So go ahead and tour the dog park at Rotary Park.

Visit the Liam J. Perk Memorial Playground and try out the exercise equipment and trail.
