Key West offers so much for beach visitors and locals alike. Higgs Beach Dog Park is one of those favorite places loved by this Florida community due to its lovely views, grassy areas, and decent size. Also known as the Clarence Higgs Beach Dog Park, this wonderful off-leash park sits adjacent to the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. There are not many dog parks in Key West with views like this, so take a minute to take in the panoramic views! The beach and dog park are open to the public and there is a wide array of activities to do around the area including tennis courts, snorkeling, and even kayaking.
Higgs Beach Dog Park is a rather large size park and has two separate fenced in dog areas that offer shade, water, grass, and plenty of room for dogs to frolic and play. Higgs Dog Park also has plenty of benches for you to sit and relax as you watch your pet enjoy the park. The two fenced-in areas are designated for large dogs and smaller dogs. This off-leash park features nice grassy areas for your pets to play in or relax in the shade on those hot Florida summer days.
The rules of the park state that dogs should be friendly, and have their license and vaccinations. Dog owners must be with their dogs at all and should clean up after them. When dogs are not in the fenced-in area they should be leashed. Dogs are welcomed across the street on the beach or pier as long as they are leashed.
There is nothing better than a Key West summer day and time spent with your beloved pet. This dog park has it all for you. It is one of the bigger dog parks you will find, so take the time to check it out.
