“Fun on the lake”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

My husband and I live in Boca and have wanted to try kayaking. We rented a two person starter that doesn't too and spent an hour on the lake. It was fun and relaxing. Busy park with lots of family stuff. Felt like a day at a mountain lake.

“Fantastic doggie park!!! ”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 via mobile

Love this park. This is a great park for big or little dogs. Has two separate sides ( under 30lbs and over 30lbs) park has benches and small covered pavilion, water fountain for dogs and walking track for the humans. Poop stations are throughout on both sides supplied with poop bags and trash cans.
From my trips here are the things to remember to bring.

Wet naps or wipes (you will be thankful)
Ball or frisbee
Tug rope
Treats (enough to share with about 15 friends)

Have fun!!!

“Favorite local park”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Okeeheelee has a lot to do. Bike riding, walk/run trail with distance markers and exercise spots, tennis/basketball courts, baseball/soccer fields, paddle boats & canoeing, nature center & nature trail, picnic areas for events, grills for cookouts, beautiful lake, dog park - I've done all the above. My favorite at the moment is the runner's trail. Nothing like working out with a great view!

“Graet Dog Park”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

We bring our dog to Pooch Pines Dog Park at Okeeheelee Park often. We like that there are 3 dog areas. There is one for small dogs, one for large dogs, and one to rotate the other two, so that the grass remains in good shape. Our dog loves to go there to play with his friends. We enjoy being able to play with him "off leash". Lots of fun.
