Woof! Woof! Dog Park Coming to Brandon

Hillsborough County, Fla. (April 12, 2018) - A dog park, walking trail, and expanded parking lot are coming to Bertha and Tony Saladino Park in Brandon.

The project will begin Wednesday, April 18 and is projected to last through late summer. The park at 1705 Bryan Road will be closed to visitors while work is underway.

Dog parks are becoming more popular as pet owners look for a safe, enclosed area where their dogs can play and get fresh air and exercise. The dog park will include shade shelters and separate areas for large dogs and small dogs.

Existing amenities at Bertha and Tony Saladino Park include a basketball court, picnic shelter, ballfield, playground, and restrooms. The park's namesakes are a well-known Brandon couple who opened their hearts and their home to generations of young baseball players, many of whom went on to collegiate or professional baseball careers.
