In these almost eleven years I had often read about Arlington Park but had never visited it. Until now.
It's a gorgeous oasis in the heart of the City of Sarasota, (but it is owned an maintained by Sarasota County). (Yes, we have both City and County Government here).
The entrance of Ben into my life caused me to seek out and visit Arlington Park. (Did I tell you that I have adopted a Greyhound named Ben. Maybe I forgot to tell you!!)
Tongue in cheek aside, I have discovered Arlington Park - it's a wonderful semi-rural enclave in the heart of a busy City. Best of all, it is utterly available to one and all.
Arlington Park has a nice half mile walking trail. Our Bayfront Park has the same, but Arlington has super shady areas, just the place to walk with my dog on hot summer days.

You bet that we will go back to the Arlington Park dog area so that Ben can run to his heart's content.
With or without a dog do enjoy the sylvan glades at Arlington Park.[take Waldemere (west) off South Tuttle Ave for the parking lot]. It is indeed a peaceful Oasis in the heart of a City.
