Hi, I'm Kaleb, and I have had plenty of dogs throughout my childhood and a hefty amount of experience taking them out for walks, playing with them, and caring for them all on my own. I have lived all over the United States in states such as Illinois, Ohio, Mississippi, Alabama, and New York because I have family members who are in the military. Since living in a lot of different states all over the U.S., this has given me a numerous amount of opportunities to see different sizes and breeds of dogs and to get comfortable with all of them. I am a huge animal lover at heart and it has always been a passion of mine to take care of all animals.

Dog Walking in Southport

Head out 4 miles north of Lynn Haven, and you'll reach the community of Southport along Florida's North Bay and Deer Point Lake. Southport is also a short drive from Panama City and part of the Panama City Muttropolitan Statistical Area. While there are no animal hospitals in town, dog parents can take their four-legged children to two facilities that are only 11 minutes away in nearby Lynn Haven.

Don't let your pup stay at home all day—take them for walkies at the Southport Community Park on Franklin Avenue! Located next to the community building, this park is minimally equipped with only a playground, pavilion, and restrooms, but offers enough room for your best friend to stretch their legs in the morning or when you come home from work.

Another spot for walkies in Southport is Simmons Park on Kingswood Road. Spanning 10 acres, Simmons Park features a lighted walking/jogging track, which is pawfect for times when you and Fido need to squeeze in a stroll after sunset. This park also houses a few baseball/softball fields, so you might catch a game or practice session while you're there. Other amenities include a pavilion, playground, and picnic tables.

A pawsitive experience awaits you and your pup in Southport!

The A.L. Kinsaul Park in nearby Lynn Haven is a puptastic spot to go for a waterside stroll with your furry pal. Hop in the car with Fido and drive 10 minutes south of Southport to reach this spacious park on the North Bay. Don't forget to pack some food and your doggo's favorite treats, too, as there is a roomy picnic pavilion offering unobstructed views of the water. The park includes a big open area where you can play with your pooch—just be sure to keep a close eye on them as it is not fenced. A walking trail will also be added in the future, so that's another feature to look forward to!

This Lynn Haven neighborhood is home to two parks where you can get some exercise or spend a relaxing afternoon with your pupper. The heart of the community, the Sharon J. Sheffield Park is a heavily shaded site which hosts many of the city's special events. Follow the walking paths with Fido to explore the park, and if you need to rest, there are plenty of picnic tables and benches scattered throughout the area. The Cain-Griffin Park, which used to be a large baseball field, now offers a playground, paved walkways, picnic pavilions, and lighted athletic courts. Both parks are only about 10 minutes away by car from Southport.

The Lauren Merriam Park features a pier and deck that let you and your pup get closer to the water, while the Issac Byrd Park has a picnic shelter with tables where hungry travelers can quickly tuck into a packed lunch. Four-legged visitors are welcome at both parks, but must be leashed and cleaned up after.

If your pooch has been a good dog all week, reward them with some off-leash time on the weekend at the Zollie Young Dog Park in nearby Panama City. Head out 9 miles southeast of Southport to reach this fenced-in bark park, located within the Zollie Young Park. The Zollie Young Dog Park features one off-leash area, a boardwalk bridge, benches for the dog parents, and plenty of trees that provide generous shade. Drinking water, waste bags, and trash receptacles are supplied as well. Visitors say the Zollie Young Dog Park is never crowded, which is good news for puppers who are a little shy.
