Dunedin is not only a great place to live, but also a popular tourist destination year-round. The small Floridian town gets its name from the Scottish immigrants that lived in the area, and still holds Scottish events to this day. This city boasts an open waterfront community, along with dog-friendly parks, beaches, trails, and six veterinarians in town.
The Happy Tails Dog Park sure lives up to its name, because it will leave your pup happily wagging his tail when he visits! The park provides over 3 acres of vibrant green fields enclosed by a fence, and surrounded by trees. There are separate areas for small and large dogs, an agility course, and double-gated fences. Owners can also enjoy additional amenities while Fido plays, like picnic tables, benches, water fountains, and clean-up stations.
The Caladesi Island State Park is an island park in Dunedin that provides over 1000 acres of protected forests, beaches, and wetlands. The state park is dog-friendly to leashed pups, and provides 4 miles of trails that extend throughout the park. Be aware that while your pup can traverse the trails, dogs are not allowed on the beaches. Don't forget to bring some clean-up bags!
Dunedin provides it all, trails, state parks, and inner city parks for a quick walk, and all are available for you and your pup in this pawsome town!
Edgewater Drive is the most southern neighborhood in Dunedin that rests along the western shoreline. Right along the shore is a narrow park called Edgewater Drive Park, which takes up .8 miles of the shore. The thin park has a paved trail that is as long as the park, a fishing pier, beach access and shaded sitting areas. The trail is the best place to give Fido a walk, and although the free space is small, there is still plenty of room to let Fido run around and play as long as he remains on a leash. Marguerite's Cafe is close by and offers gourmet sandwiches alongside dog-friendly outdoor seating.
