Miko's Corner Playground
Gene C. Reid Park, Country Club Road near 22nd Street, Playground Web site
Fido needs his exercise, too. To wear him out so he doesn't destroy your furniture, treat him to a romp and tumble at Miko's Corner Playground at Reid Park. Named after a police dog killed in the line of duty, the off-leash dog park features separate areas for big and small dogs, both with double gates to prevent pooch escapes, and with water fountains at human and doggie heights. Plus, there's grass, which is easy on your pup's paws when he's dashing around franticly to get a sniff of every available canine butt. Open daily from 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
