Deputy John Kotfila Jr. Memorial Dog Park

Transformation of 20,000 SF located under the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway into a Memorial to the Heroic Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Deputy John Kotfila Junior. This capacious space offers separate areas for both large and small dogs to run and play. The park utilizes K9Grass artificial turf, which is more realistic and won’t hurt the paws of puppies or smaller breeds. The park also features large circular bench seating, water fountains, built in pet bowls, and a monument with memorial garden in tribute to the fallen deputy.
