Lucky pups in Miami can lounge beachside at their very own Bark Beach! Located in North Beach Oceanside Park, which used to be called the North Shore Open Space Park, this puptastic spot has the sun and sand your dog is craving!
The entire beach area along the North Beach Oceanside Park is generally off limits to pooches. But on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 1:30 PM and 5:30 PM, the section located between 80th and 81st Streets becomes an off leash pupperdise! That's right, your dog can romp in the sand and splash in the water during these special dog-designated hours, just be sure they keep within the dog beach area.
Your dog will love lounging in the sun, crushing the sand castle you've built, or getting their paws wet on this furbulous stretch of sand! If you've got a digger, keep an eye that they behave and don't dig any holes as it isn't allowed on this beach. You can bring up to two dogs at a time, so long as they are vaccinated and licensed, and wearing their tags on their collars. While your dog can run without a leash, do keep it in hand while at the beach, and on your dog when entering and exiting it, as well as in the rest of the park. And always have clean-up bags handy to promptly pick up anything your dog leaves behind.
But North Beach Oceanside Park has another treasure for dogs- it's very own dog park! With two double-fenced dog run areas, one for large dogs and one for small dogs, your dog can ditch the leash again and cavort with neighborhood pals. Open daily, the park also features water fountains for thirsty pups, benches for you to relax on, and bags and trash cans to make clean-up a breeze! Human restrooms can be found in other areas of the North Beach Oceanside.
When your dog is giving you the sad eyes, brighten their day with a trip to the gorgeous Bark Beach at North Beach Oceanside Park today!
