Creekwood lies within the city of Florence so it is subject to Florence's leash law. Sec.4-80 (Running at Large) "It shall be unlawful for any dog to run at large inside the city limits. You may let the dog loose in your yard not confined if you can control him but if you go inside the dog must be confined. You may take your dog to the park as long as you keep it on a leash."
Kendale Gardens is not in the city limits as previously stated.
