Free & cheap dog-friendly parks in Miami-Dade

If you’re looking for dog-friendly parks, Miami-Dade County is filled with them. There are at least 27 free and cheap parks you and your dog can enjoy together. There are plenty in City of Miami proper as well.

There are a few dog parks that allow your dog to run free, without a leash, and play with other dogs within a fenced-off area. These dog parks offer separate areas for smaller and larger dogs, along with water fountains, bag dispensers, waste containers, shaded areas, and seating areas. Remember to make sure your furry friend is up to date on vaccinations before visiting any dog park.

Also remember, in this time of social distancing, new rules may be in place at these locations, so please check before heading out there!
