PJ First Impressions: Gary B Jones Dog Park for People and Pups is one of the nicest dog parks in Broward County. It's really beautiful and has all the amenities that you could ask for. Covered pavilions, covered benches, tons of water fountains, hoses to rinse your dog, agility really does have it all. I really like that around 3:00 pm people and their dogs started streaming in and it seemed more like a family atmosphere. You could tell these people were friends and that was really nice to see. Once you enter the main entrance, each section has it's own entrance. I like that the whole park has a fence around it so when you come out of the small or large dog section, your pup is still fenced in. It just gives an extra layer of protection. All in all, this is a beautiful dog park and well worth the visit!
