Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces appreciates how much dogs mean to their owners, and to help dog lovers enjoy their fun-loving barking pets outdoors Miami-Dade Parks offers three different types of parks to play in:
- Dog Friendly Parks for leashed dogs
- Dog Parks where dogs can freely roam
- Dog Run Parks for leashed dogs
These parks have signage designating them as such.
Miami-Dade Parks welcomes service animals into all park areas.
Dog Friendly Parks
Dog owners can now stroll, run and play with their dogs at 14 neighborhood Dog Friendly Parks, so long as their dogs are on a leash. In addition, there are bag dispensers and waste baskets for dog owners to pick-up after their beloved furry friends. Any valid registration and proof of vaccination, regardless of county or state of origin, is acceptable.
Designated Dog Parks are usually located within a larger park and allow dogs to frolic and play and run free within a fenced-off area. They feature site furniture and equipment for dogs to play with and perform stunts. Additional features include shade structures, hosing stations, water fountains for both pets and owners, and “Mutt Mitts” or bag dispensers and waste baskets, so owners can pick up after their pooches (a.k.a. dogs).
Dog Run Parks
A Dog Run is a park with a dedicated fenced area for owners to exercise their dogs and let them roam without wearing leashes. However, unlike a Dog Park, a Dog Run Park doesn't have water facilities or dispensers or waste baskets.Back to Top Page Last Edited: Tue Jul 8, 2014 2:03:30 PM
