Description
This dog-friendly beach is located north of Sunrise Boulevard on A1A. The park is operated by the city of Fort Lauderdale. To access it, there is a parking fee. You can pay $7 per dog for a weekend pass to visit this park, but you have the option of obtaining an annual pass. The posted prices from 2017 are $30 per dog for Fort Lauderdale residents,  $45 per dog for non-residents, and there is a $5 fee if you lose your annual permit. To obtain the permit, the owner must produce a hard copy proof of vaccinations and a valid proof of Fort Lauderdale residency at the time of application. 

The beach is supervised, so if it is open, there is an officer on duty. The officer does check for permits. There are also dunes between the beach and the road. The dog area of the beach is marked with cones. It is critical to clean up after your pet to keep the area sanitary. Doggie-doo bags are provided as are trash containers. 

You will be able to find water and showers in this park. Dogs must remain on-leash on this beach but can go into the water to play. Visitors report that there is a friendly vibe among people and pets at this beach. Like any dog play area, there are also reports of conflicts between dogs. There are owners who will let their dogs off-leash even though the rules are to stay on-leash, so be aware. 

Local restaurants offer dog-friendly events from time to time, such as doggie happy hours and special shopping days. This beach is a place to bring your dog for a walk along the shore and go for some splashing in the water - all a part of the joy of living in and visiting the Sunshine State!
