The 10 Best Dog Parks in Miami


Looking for a wonderful Miami dog park? You’re in the right place!

Just like us, dogs are happier when they MOVE! Dog parks are the perfect place for your best friend to run and play. A day at the park can raise both your heart rates and your spirits.

Admission to each and every one of these parks is FREE! Other Florida towns (I’m looking at you, Jacksonville) have mostly private dog parks. We’re lucky to have so many fantastic options in Miami.    

Read on to discover the best dog parks in Miami. 

1. Amelia Earhart Dog Park

There is so much to explore at Amelia Earhart Park. This 515-acre park includes five lakes, a fantastic playground, and a farm village with historical replicas. There are trails, picnic shelters, and even Wi-Fi!

The dog park spans five acres and is completely fenced! With water fountains, tables, and benches, there’s virtually no limit to how long your pup can play. They even have an obstacle course!

There’s a seperate section for small dogs.

Weekday parking is free. On weekends, you’ll need to pay $7 to park here.

2. Perrine Wayside Dog Park

This beautiful 3-acre park offers separate areas for small and large dogs. The perimeter fence encloses a walking path and a large lake where your dog is welcome to swim. Dual gates keep your dogs extra safe.

There are pet water fountains and a hose you can use to wash your dog if they get too muddy.

Keep an eye on puppies and small dogs; they may be able to slip through the gate.

3. Margaret Pace Dog Park

This waterfront park includes two fenced areas where dogs can play. The space for large dogs occupies most of the half acre. The area for small dogs is limited to dogs that weigh 25 pound or less.

There are water fountains for both you and your pup. Sit on one of the park benches and enjoy the beautiful view of Biscayne Bay. Lights at night make this a great choice for getting out with your dog after dark.

This park is open to the public. In other words, FREE!

Haulover is a public beachfront park. It’s 177 acres with 1.4 miles of beach.

The leash-free bark park is located near the south picnic area. There are two fenced areas: one for large dogs, and another for dogs 35 pounds and under. There’s room to run on the grass and the usual amenities: drinking fountains, shade trees, picnic tables, free bags, and trash cans.
