One of the main goals of the new development is to increase the awareness of dog tourism in Hungary and promote local dog-friendly services and attractions.
The park is located on almost 4,500 square meters, landscaped and surrounded by tall trees for shade at any time of the day. Outside of the official bathing area, dogs and their owners can also bathe in Lake Balaton here, but everyone must follow the rules and regulations of the facility.
There is a fenced-in dog playground as well, with various devices created just for dogs, and there are even food services from Masni Piknikkert, featuring products from several local producers as well as dog treats and snacks.
The Keszthely Dog Park and Picnic Garden can be visited every day until September 15, depending on the weather, and on pre-arranged days starting in autumn.
The dog adventure park was implemented by the team at Bee Média Kft., a family business with local roots, in collaboration with the Kutyabarát Balaton project, Kutyabarát.hu and the city of Keszthely.
Last year, kutyabarat.hu launched the Dog-Friendly Places 2019 competition in an effort to feature dog-friendly services and locations that are available all around Hungary.
