Candi Soltau encourages her 8-year-old Shih Tzu, Willie, to play in the fenced-in dog park within Bayhead Action Park Feb. 17.
LARGO – Bayhead Action Park now includes a fenced-in half-acre dog park, which will eventually include a fire hydrant drinking fountain, K9 agility items and a paw-shaped picnic table.

The park, dubbed Dog Bone Run, has been enclosed with a 4-foot fence. The other dog-friendly amenities should be installed in a month or less, said parks supervisor Greg Brown. While the gate has no latch yet, Brown said he’s noticed nearby residents letting their dogs play in the open space already.

“People have gotten the picture,” he said. “It’s good to see there’s a need there.”

Joe and Candi Soltau walked their 8-year-old Shih Tzu through Bayhead to the dog park the evening of Feb. 17. Encouraging little Willie to exercise was important, they said, adding that they enjoyed the atmosphere of the park.

“The whole neighborhood uses it,” said Joe Soltau. “It’s pretty communal.”

To help fund the new infrastructure, the dog park will include a bone-shaped plaza where owners can purchase a brick in honor of their canine friend.

Dog Bone Run, open to small dogs and well-behaved large dogs, is within Bayhead Action Park, 375 Seminole Blvd. Hours will be sunrise to sunset. Brown said he hopes to hold a grand opening in about a month.
