All would agree that the North Beach neighborhood of Miami Beach, Florida has plenty to offer, to people and puppers. This charming neighborhood is full of tropical mid-century modern buildings that will give you a taste of old Miami, all within close proximity of the ocean. Possibly the best treat of all is the North Beach Oceanside Dog Park. This “Bark Park” is located within the very popular North Shore Open Space Park on Collins Avenue.
In this dog park, you’ll find a safe place for your doggo to romp around and enjoy some pawsitive socialization off-leash. You can find everything you need here, including doggy waste bags and trash receptacles, and doggy drinking fountains. Now all you need is your dog’s favorite ball! For optimum safety, there are two separate fenced off areas, one for small breeds and another for the big guys. There is also plenty of shade, and some walking paths within the dog park. You’re guaranteed a tuckered out pup after some time spent here!
If your dogs would like to see what’s on the other side of the fences, they are welcome to join you in the rest of the park, except for the beach, on-leash. This park has a much more laid-back vibe than many other Miami Beach Parks, so it’s a great place to go if you’d like to avoid the bigger crowds. In the surrounding park you’ll find restrooms, pavilions, picnic areas, barbecue grills, a fitness area and playgrounds. The paved pathways wind through the trees, with a salty ocean breeze to top it off.
If you’re driving to the park, you should be able to find street parking for little or no charge. Some things to remember are to keep your dog leashed while not within the fenced-off dog park, and always picked up after. Never leave your dog unattended, and be sure Fido plays well with others.
With the seemingly endless things to do here, North Beach Oceanside Dog Park is sure to get your dog’s tail wagging!
