Enjoy a Pet’s Day Out at Shingle Creek Regional Park

As visitors flock to Central Florida for its world-renowned theme parks and attractions, many are thrilled to discover FantasyWorld Resort, a leading resort in Kissimmee FL. Ideally located to all of the attractions, our vacation villas and array of activities and amenities – including our own water park – make it an attraction in its own right. Best of all, if you’re traveling with your pets, they’re welcome too! To make sure your dog has just as good a time as you do, be sure to visit nearby Shingle Creek Regional Park in Kissimmee, with its own fenced dog park.

Shingle Creek Regional Park offers something for the whole family to enjoy. You can immerse yourself in nature, while enjoying various recreational opportunities. There’s a playground for young kids, hiking trails with exercise equipment along the way for exploring and enjoying the local nature and scenery, plus, you can make a day of it, thanks to the pavilion, grills, and picnic tables. Let your dog work off some energy at the fenced dog park, making sure everyone in the family gets to have some fun.

As animal lovers, you’ll also be interested to take in the park’s sanctuary for the state’s threatened Gopher Tortoise. Visitors have the opportunity to potentially view this unique and vital species along the trails. Gopher tortoises are a medium-sized land turtle that burrows into sandy soils, using its shovel-like front legs. St. Clair is home to as many as 57 gopher tortoises, with some of their burrows visible from the trail (look for an elliptical shaped opening with dirt kicked away from the entrance). What makes these turtles even more fascinating is the fact that their burrows provide habitat to 350+ species. That makes gopher tortoises a “keystone species,” because the survival of the wildlife community depends on their presence.

There’s something for all ages – including people and canines – to enjoy at Shingle Creek Regional Park’s location at 925 South Bass Road, Kissimmee, FL 34746. There are additional locations of the park with other activities and scenery, but the Bass Road location is just 10 minutes from FantasyWorld Resort. If you’re looking for a resort in Kissimmee FL that is ideally located, offers spacious vacation villas, a wealth of amenities and activities, and is pet friendly, make your FantasyWorld reservation today.
