Top 10 Dog Parks In Miami

WRITTEN BY Carter

1. Morningside Park

Morningside Park offers a pleasant spot for a run, 4 miles north of downtown Miami and near I-195. About 1 mile of shaded, paved trails in the park is also a popular tennis and rec center. There are nice water views as a well. The residential neighborhood just to the west of the park is very pleasant for running, with windy, low-trafficked roads.

 

2. David T. Kennedy Park

David Thomas Kennedy was an American attorney and politician. Kennedy served as the Mayor of Miami-Waterfront park, offering an off-leash dog area, outdoor gym, walking path & beach volleyball. David T. Kennedy Dog Park is the pawrfect place for you, also called the Coconut Grove Dog Park. This pawpular doggy play haven finds its home within the family-friendly Kennedy Park and boasts of not one but two fully fenced play areas for doggies to enjoy! Yes, that’s right; your pooch can drop their lead at the gate because this pawsome park is an off-leash zone. Though the off-leash play is the order of the day at this pawsitively awesome doggy playground, you will still need to bring a leash with you because the Miami police strictly require all doggies to be on a lead when traveling to and from designated dog areas. The David T. Kennedy Dog Park earns top marks for its clean and well-maintained grounds. This wonderful dog park was the recipient of the Miami Times 2018 Readers’ Choice award for the city’s best dog park.
