Doggy Splash Day -Frisco Athletic Center
Dogs and humans had a great time at the first annual Doggy Splash Day in the pools of the Frisco Athletic Center. We had over 300 canines playing along with 570 of their two-legged friends. Lots of wagging tails and smiles. Some pics are on Frisco Dog Park Facebook page. Also on the Frisco Parks & Rec Facebook page. You can post pics on Instagram using #friscodogpark.

New ‘Rotating” Large Dog Area and More Parking Coming to Ruff Range
Visitors to the popular Ruff Range Dog Park will find double the parking and a second large dog area that keeps one area open while the other recovers from everyday wear. Beginning Aug. 25, large dogs (35 lbs +) and their owner’s will no longer have to wait for the grass to regrow to enjoy the park.
The new large dog area mirrors the current space in size and amenities with water stations, lighted pavilion with picnic tables, stone bench seating, and a dog wash station.
In addition to more parking, the entrance to the dog park has expanded allowing for more room at the dog wash station, as well as coming and going. Frisco Dog Park. Inc., a nonprofit that helps defray the cost of park maintenance, is currently selling personalized bricks to be installed at the plaza entrance.
