Smyrna Dunes Park enjoys a superb location at the northern tip of Smyrna Beach peninsula. It spreads across 73 acres and is surrounded by the Indian River, Ponce Inlet, and the Atlantic Ocean. Since the park is home to five unique ecosystems, your doggo will get a healthy dose of nature while visiting, as well as some much needed exercise.
Smyrna Dunes Park is known far and wide for having a dog friendly beach. While you may see other pups running free, it’s important to keep your pal’s leash on since there are rattlesnakes in the area. You also want to keep your dog from harassing the local turtles. But your furry friend is welcome to splash in the waves, dig in the sand, or take a refreshing dip in the ocean. They will absolutely go mutts over this puptastic beach!
Like the name suggests, the park is primarily made up of sand
dunes. To protect the dunes from the wear and tear of foot traffic, two miles
of elevated boardwalks were built. Stroll around the walkways so your doggo can
see all of the park’s beauty while getting a nice workout. Don’t forget to
carry some water and paws for a drink every once in a while. The park also has
some nature trails, a pawsome Observation Deck, restrooms, and picnic
facilities. Bring some water to share with your adventurous pup.
Cleaning up after your dog is one of the most important
rules to obey while you're visiting the Smyrna Dunes Park with Fido. With that
in mind, make sure you always have a waste bag handy. There is also a dog wash
area, so you can rinse all the sand off your pal’s paws before they get back in
If you're looking for a dog-friendly place that has both
beaches and grassy areas to enjoy, the Smyrna Dunes Park is the pawfect option.
Get ready to make some memories!
