Croton Park is a small neighborhood near central Melbourne, Florida. Melbourne is known for its miles of unspoiled beaches along Florida’s Space Coast and its abundant availability of sports activities such as golf and snorkeling, making it a top location. This sunshine paradise isn’t just great for you, but the perfect spot for your four-legged friend!
One aspect of Croton Park that makes it perfect for pooches is its easy access to numerous dog-friendly amenities in Melbourne. These include multiple pet care stores in case you run out of those all-important treats and over 60 dog-friendly restaurants, all within a short driving distance. But best of all is that Crofton Park is just a 15-minute drive from Canova Beach Park, the only beach along Florida’s Space Coast that is dog-friendly. Your pup will thank you for taking him here to cool down in the sea from Florida’s boiling heat. Just remember to pack a towel!
Croton Park is a small residential area, and as such, the terrain is flat and even sidewalks are ideal for casual, quick strolls. If you’d prefer a longer walk, then you can wander 30 minutes to riverside Pineapple Avenue and soak up the stunning river views it has to offer while keeping your pooch happy. The brilliant dog-friendly restaurant Bonefish Willy’s Riverfront Grille can be found here and refuel you before the walk home. Sneakers or sandals are appropriate footwear for this flat and even terrain.
Canova Beach boasts a beautiful sandy coast, so get out those flip-flops or ditch the footwear altogether when coming here. You could even go for a swim in the ocean with your favorite furry friend. Wickham Park, the biggest greenway nearby, is forested and has an uneven terrain, so if you wish to visit here and make the most of its longer walking paths, then hiking boots may be required.
