About Deputy Kotfila Memorial Dog Park

Is Deputy Kotfila Memorial Dog Park Dog Friendly?

Yes, Deputy Kotfila Memorial Dog Park is dog-friendly! This well-maintained pup paradise offers spacious play areas for dogs of all sizes, with separate zones for our petite pals and more prominent furry friends. The “K9Grass” artificial turf is durable yet gentle on your puppy’s “pawdicure.” For agile adventurers, there are plenty of obstacles and tubes to conquer! Seeking shade or rain protection? You’ll find it here in its strategic spot under the Selmon Expressway. Hydration stations with built-in pet bowls, ample bench-style seating, clean-up bags, and well-lit, complimentary parking complete the package.

More Info:

Introducing the first Selmon Greenway Pocket Park, a touching tribute to the late Deputy John Robert Kotfila Jr., who bravely served and lost his life in 2016 to a wrong-way driver on the Selmon Expressway. It’s a fitting memorial inspired by the Deputy’s bond with his loyal German Shepherd, Dexter. This dog park is in downtown Tampa, slightly off the tourist trail but conveniently adjacent to the Channelside district and the “Four Green Fields” pub! It’s also an easy drive from some of our favorite pet-friendly hotels in downtown Tampa.
