Is your dog begging to go outside and play in the nice weather? In that case, you better give him something to bark home about! In Florida, we have some really great dog parks, but Miami dog parks are among the best. To help you plan your afternoon, we’ve sniffed out some of the best places to take your dog so you don’t have to pant yourself into a lather. If you’re looking for some fun in the sun that both you and your pooch can enjoy, take a look at Doggies Gone Wild’s top five picks (in no particular order) for best dog parks in Miami:
Amelia Earhart Bark Park
Starting off our list, we have Amelia Earhart Bark Park, located at 401 NE 65th St. in Miami. This off-lead dog park is really beautiful—plenty of grassy areas for running and lots of shade trees to cool your doggy off under. With water fountains for humans and their canine friends located throughout the park, you’re both sure to stay hydrated.
Be aware that you are not allowed more than three dogs at a time. There are waste dispenser stations located at various points, so be sure to pick up after your dog. If your dog is small, make sure to take advantage of the small dog area, which is separate from the rest of the park.
Haulover Dog Park
If you’re looking for a day at the beach, Haulover Dog Park is the one you want to visit. Seven days a week, you can take your pup for a run and a splash near lifeguard tower #3 from 8am-3pm. Parking is $2 per vehicle. You can find Haulover Dog Park at 10800 Collins Ave. in Miami Beach.
Perrine Wayside Dog Park
Perrine Wayside Dog Park is a three-acre, beautifully landscaped family-oriented dog park located at 16425 S Dixie Hwy. in Miami. The main feature of this park, aside from human/canine water fountains, lots of shade, and separate play areas for big and small dogs, is definitely the pond where your doggy can go and cool off.
Tropical Park Dog Park
Located at 7900 SW 40th St. in Miami, Tropical Park Dog Park is one to check out. With all the amenities of other parks in the area, this park is popular for locals and out-of-towners alike. Check out the fun obstacle course that can keep your dog occupied for hours.
Margaret Pace Dog Park
If Miami dog parks with waterfront views and a city feel are your thing, you’ve got to visit Margaret Pace Dog Park at 1745 N Bayshore Dr. in Miami. And if you’re single and looking, there’s an added bonus—many dog-loving singles have been known to frequent the area! The park offers plenty of room to play that isn’t too far out of the way.
