A coastal property of historical significance, this recreational center takes its name from Mr. Frank B. Butler, a prominent African American civil rights activist and community leader. During a climate rife with heavy segregation, Butler Beach, as it was formerly known, was the only beach which permitted African American swimmers. Today, all are welcome to join the fun at the pawsome Frank B. Butler County Park, whether they are of the canine or human variety.
If a romp along the sandy shores is what you had in mind, grab your favorite furry friend and head out for a stroll. Thinking a dip in the ocean is just what the dog-tor ordered? Go ahead and take the plunge! Fido can doggy paddle right alongside you to his heart's content. Just be sure to obey all Florida leash laws by keeping your best canine pal on a lead at all times so as not to upset the paw-lice!
The area is also home to some woofderful sand dunes, but be careful when you are out exploring with your pooch as the dunes are home to several endangered species, including the Anastasia Island Beach Mouse and the gopher tortoise.
Be sure to pack some bottled water and clean up bags. There are bathrooms with showers on the premises, and the paw-blic is welcome to use them. Off-site pawrking is available, but if you fancy something a little more adventurous, why not obtain a permit to drive right on the beach?
