Peacock Park is a pawsome waterfront park in Coconut Grove, Miami's oldest neighborhood. It boasts some truly magnificent water views and is where many people like to come watch the sun rise and set. Sandwiched between The Barnacle Historic State Park and Kenneth Myers Bayside Park, its trails and walkways extend to those parks and beyond, making it a great place to start or end a longer walk with your dog.
Peacock Park's main feature is its dog-friendly lawn. Kickball, softball, and soccer teams sometimes practice on it or on other fields and sports facilities within the park. Skaters flock to Peacock Park's skate park, which has been rated as one of the best in the city. Other organized events hosted by the park include yoga classes. On the outdoor stage, concerts, dance performances, and festivals frequently take place.
Peacock Park is often free for family picnics and unstructured play time. No matter what's going on at the park, it's a great place for dogs to sniff, run, and frolic. Just keep in mind that dogs must be on leashes here and remember to clean up after your pups. There are trash cans around the park, but you'll need to bring your own waste bags and water. Neighboring Kenneth Myers Park does have waste bag dispensers if you run out of your own. Bring some water too to share, especially on hot days.
Groves of palm trees give Peacock Park a classic Miami feel. Expansive live oaks shade the park's recreation center and neighboring restaurant Glass & Vine. Located within the park's boundary, the hip eatery specializes in tapas-style dishes and has dog-friendly outdoor seating. They even have a doggie menu for puppy patrons!
There's no better way to spend a day with your dog than to take a nice long walk along the water, romp and play on a big lawn, then sit down together to share a meal. Come to Peacock Park with your favorite pup and you can do it all in the same place!
