French Lake Off-Leash Dog Park is no longer going to the dogs. In fact, it’s become a horrid mess and isn’t the great place for dogs that it has been in the past. Last year, access to all 10 of the park’s acres was reduced by half, so that two of the ponds could be filled in. Numerous delays kept dog owners out of that newly “remodeled” area.

As soon as the refurbished side was opened, the original side was closed to refurbish the turf in that section.
