Keystone Islands is a waterfront community located on the Biscayne Bay and featuring larger homes, most of which sit on a waterway and have their own docks. Many of the houses here date back to the fifties and have three baths and four bedrooms. Being a waterfront residential community, shopping and restaurants are located inland on Biscayne Blvd. There is a delightful selection of eateries to choose from, but beyond this, the community is primarily a residential zone. Thanks to a very low crime rate, walking your pup around the neighborhood should not be a problem! 

Keep in mind that the weather here in the summer is pretty hot and stays in the 90s for weeks at a time. This means that the pavement is going to be hot enough to burn puppy paws. The best time of day during the summer months is in the early morning hours before the sun turns the pavement back into molten lava.

Practically every inch of Keystone Islands is covered in large, expensive homes, streets, and yards. Fortunately, when the community was being built, the designers planned for lots of sidewalks with grass berms. These give your pooch a place to walk on if the pavement is getting too hot for their paws. Despite this, you can still make the most of what you have to walk on by taking different routes, walking at different times of the days, or taking a drive to one of the bigger parks or preserves in the Miami area. 

When you live in an area like this, you have to work hard to find new and creative ways to bring excitement to your daily strolls. If not, you might soon find them so dull that you just let Fred do business in the backyard. Plan your walks, take plenty of water, and stay out of the sun during the hottest part of the day.

One of the only disadvantages to living in Keystone Islands is the distinct lack of green spaces. The only park in the area is the Keystone Park which is a small space for your family and has plenty of grass for you and your pup to run around on. Be sure to keep them on a leash! 

Just across Biscayne Blvd. lies the Enchanted Forest Elaine Gordon Park. This park is a 22-acre gem in the middle of North Miami, covered in with a dense tree canopy and plenty of brush. There is a lovely winding trail running through the park along with a delightful creek that runs through this park and into Arch Creek next door. One of the trails is thought to date back to before the Europeans invaded. You and your pooch are welcome to use the trails, but you have to dodge the 'horse apples' left by the riding stables located in the park.
