Sitting on the eastern shores of the Mobile Bay, Daphne is a thriving suburb community of Mobile. The area has been influenced by the Spanish, French and British ownership over the years, and has subsequently gained 30% of its population in just the last ten years. That spike also includes many dogs and dog owners, so it's no surprise that Daphne has many puptastic options around the city.
Located right in the heart of Daphne is the Daphne Dog Park. This park is completely fenced in, and with towering trees and an abundance of picnic tables and benches, Fido will have the chance to run around off leash as much as he wants. There are separate areas for larger and smaller dogs, water fountains, and clean-up stations.
Resting along the shore is the May Day Park, a sizeable Bayfront spot that has a wooded area, open field, access to the beach, and a large launch for boats and kayaks. Dogs must remain on a leash at the park, but can go anywhere humans go, including in the water, on the beach or in the open areas. The park also offers trash bins, water fountains, and benches.
Daphne even has five different animal hospitals to cater to your pup's needs. No matter where you end up around the town, you and Fido will have a great day!
The Seacliff neighborhood is 6 miles south of Daphne, on the northern side of Fairhope. Although located outside the city, the community is an excellent option for dog-lovers as it offers the Fairhope Dog Park. The 3-acre park has separate, fenced-in areas for large and small dogs, as well as grassy fields and a wooded area with short walking trails. Each region has clean-up stations, benches, water fountains and kiddie pools. The neighborhood even hosts Rae's Southern Kitchen, a comfort food eatery with homestyle meals that offers outdoor pet-friendly seating, water, and even some homebaked treats for your pup!
