Dog Park in Testaccio

The dog park in our neighborhood, Testaccio, is more similar to what one might expect to find at a dog park in the States. It is a fenced in area with benches and space for the dogs to run and play. The owners sit on the benches, unleash the pups, and they play. The dogs view this as their space, and will bark at passersby. It appears relatively clean, whether it is maintained by the park or by those who frequent the park. The dogs seem to love this place—we passed someone taking his dog into the park while being pulled eagerly toward the dog park portion.
