Bark Parks/ Bark Beach

Dog in Grass
There are currently six designated Bark Parks(View Below) and one Bark Beach within the City of Miami Beach available for your canine family.  The bark parks provide a social setting for dog owners to allow their pets to romp and play off-leash.  All parks feature several amenities including, two double fenced in dog runs for large and small breeds, drinking fountains, benches and waste collection and disposal containers.  Parks and Recreation is dedicated to providing the best overall quality of life experience for our users and presently provides daily litter and trash service to the Bark Parks Monday through Friday.  Also, when staff needs to perform more extensive periodic renovations at the facilities, the double play areas allow for the ability to keep at least one play area open during this time. For questions or concerns regarding our Bark Parks, call 305.673.7730 or email recreation@miamibeachfl.gov.
