Snapper Creek is at Mile 19 which is nineteen miles north of Florida City, the southern terminus of the pay route. Until now it had been a crappy place to stop and stretch your dog's legs.
But they have refurbished the place and, bless their hearts, they have included a fabulous little dog park.
It's securely fenced and nicely equipped:
Press the button and fresh cool water bubbles up. Nice!
They have other facilities here, besides reasonably priced gas and an inconvenience store.
I like the dog park.
It was hot and the freshly planted saplings threw very little shade but Cheyenne likes to smell where other dogs have been.
She rooted around for a while.
I marveled at the thoughtfulness of whoever decided to offer this space for the dogs in this narrow and most urban of rest areas.
I know that in rural areas some rest areas encompass acres with massive dog walk areas but for a place that used to offer nothing at all this is a massive improvement. Great stuff.
