HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Dogs and their people have a new place to play in Hillsborough County.

The Northwest County Dog Park opened on Monday. The park is unique because it is the first one in the county that has artificial turf and agility training equipment. The artificial turf area is about 4,600 square feet.

Active dogs will especially like the agility training equipment, which includes crawl tubes, large and small hoops jumps and an adjustable bar for dogs to jump over.

The park also has 1.5 acres of fenced areas and pathways with shade shelters, doggie drinking fountains, washing areas, leash poles and pet waste stations. The park has a half-acre parking area and restrooms.
