Liberty City was founded in what used to be a sparsely inhabited area in northern Miami. In 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt authorized the construction of Liberty Square, a housing project intended to relieve some of the housing strain in Overton. Today, the area is starting to see some efforts at revitalization, yet crime is still high here. Walking your dog here should be done during the day whenever possible. Much of the area is poorly kept, but depending on where you live, you can see efforts to make a change.
There are several dog-friendly parks in the community along with pet stores within driving distance. If you want to go out to eat, you have no choice but to leave the community in search of a good restaurant. The climate is quite mild with summers in the 80s and winters in the 60s with never a chance of snow in the forecast.
The terrain in Liberty City is one large flat tract of land with block upon block of carefully laid out residential areas. Housing here ranges from single-family homes to apartment complexes and row houses. Walking here is not much of a challenge beyond your own safety. To get the most out of your daily hikes, you will need to become very creative. The good news? With so many different blocks to choose from, you can challenge each other to keep adding more blocks into your walks.
To add a bit more fun, you can also take in one of the several parks that are scattered throughout the community. Most parks are dog-friendly as long as you keep your pup on the leash and pick up after them. One more way to add challenge to your walks is for both of you to work your way up to jogging. This will benefit both of your health!
There are several parks in Liberty City. Most are small 'neighborhood' parks with playgrounds, small patches of grass, and a few shade trees. If you are just looking for somewhere for the two of you to romp around a little, these might be just what you need.
The big park is Charles Hadley Park off of N 12th Ave. This is a large park with an aquatic center, tennis and basketball courts, trails, and plenty of grass for you to have a good time playing around.
At the northern border of the community is African Square Park which, while small in size, does offer a trail running around the edge of the park and plenty of well-kept grass for your pup to play on and stretch their legs. Beyond this, if you want to find a larger park, you could cruise out to Morningside Park on the shore of Biscayne Bay.
