Dog parks offer like-minded people the opportunity to connect with others, or just be there exchanging a few words. Dogs are conversation starters, particularly among fellow pup people. You’ll might even interact with others you’d otherwise never cross paths with.
Trails meander through the woods, and today Dogtober Fest participants are encouraged to participate in a Halloween-themed scavenger hunt. (I only found three items on the list). While giving it our best try, we discover several barbeque grills and picnic tables throughout the site, Muskoka chairs for lounging and watching nature go by, and a newly installed boardwalk weaving its way through the marshier sections of the woods.
