PARK POLICIES

PETS:

City Ordinance 22-11 permits leashed dogs in passive parks, unless signage is posted at a City park prohibiting dogs.  No other animals, or pets of any kind (except service animals) are permitted in city parks, unless they are in a fenced area that has been designated as an Off-Leash Dog Park (City Ordinance 13-11-1). Two Dog Parks are located in Cooper City:

Christie Schafale Dog Park - 4900 SW 87th Avenue, 33328

Michael "City Mike" Riordan Park (formerly known as Flamingo Park) - Dog Park - 5300 SW 122 Avenue, 33330

Monterra Community Dog Park - entry is from Pine Island Road

Brian Piccolo County Park, located in Cooper City, also welcomes well-behaved, leashed dogs (maximum 6-foot length leash).

PRIVATE PARTIES

Reservations for private parties are not accepted and bounce houses and barbeque grills are not permitted in neighborhood parks. 

ThorGuard Lightning Prediction System & Policy

Cooper City has installed the ThorGuard lightning prediction system at our three sport complexes, the Cooper City Pool & Tennis Center and at Pioneer Middle School.  The ThorGuard system is designed to predict lightning in your local area BEFORE lightning strikes.  When the ThorGuard warning system sounds a 15 second horn blast, the outdoor facility must be cleared of all patrons as soon as practical.  All persons must remain inside buildings or vehicles.  During this period, a strobe light on top of the building will light up and will continue to operate until the weather clears.  Three short horn blasts will signal the “all clear” and all patrons can resume their activities.

Flamingo West Park has the ThorMobile lightning prediction system.  By clicking on the ThorMobile link  below you will have real-time access to the ThorGuard lightning prediction system at Flamingo West Park.  The web-based product allows you to view the prediction data, National Weather Service (NWS)  local radar and NWS severe weather warnings.  This is different than an app, which must be downloaded to each device. Simply access the web address and view the real-time report.
