The following dog parks are located minutes from PetCure Oncology at Jacksonville SEVO-Med. Weather permitting, stop by and enjoy the outdoors with your dog by your side – and don’t forget to bring a leash!

Jacksonville Leash Laws
According to Sec. 462.106, dogs must be leashed at all times when not on the owner’s property. Animals on retractable leashes shall be considered “at-large” if the leash extends beyond 8 feet. To be safe, keep your pet on a leash at all times, unless the area is specifically marked “off leash area.”

Excerpt from the leash ordinance reads as follows:

“If the owner’s, leaser’s, or renter’s property is located within a community association or other common-property arrangement, it shall also be considered off the owner’s, leaser’s, or renter’s property if the animal leaves the owner’s curtilage and onto common property, unless such property is clearly designated as an ‘off-leash’ area. An animal on a retractable or other trolley leash system shall be considered at-large if the leash is extended beyond eight feet in length since adequate physical control cannot be maintained over the animal.”
