About Bayfront Park & Dog Park

Is Bayfront Park & Dog Park Dog Friendly?

Yes, Bayfront Park and its off-leash dog park are dog friendly and make our curated list of the best dog friendly parks in Miami. Located in the heart of downtown Miami with scenic views of Biscayne Bay, Bayfront Park opened in 1896 and was Greater Miami’s first public gathering space. Today the park’s 32 acres are popular with both visitors and locals who want to relax, play or exercise.

The urban oasis features open lawn spaces, a wide baywalk, walkways, a stunning fountain, and a waterfall that dates back to 1926. Even better, at the sound end of Bayfront Park, directly across from the wonderful dog friendly InterContinental Miami Hotel, you’ll discover a fully fenced dog park with plenty of room for your four-legged friend to run off-leash. The dog park’s surface is primarily turf. Inside you’ll find trees for shade and benches for humans to relax while the four-legged family members romp and play. Please note that the dog park in Bayfront Park does not have separate areas for large and small dogs. When we visited recently, dogs of all sizes happily played together in the large space. In addition to being across the street from the dog friendly InterContinental Miami Hotel, Bayfront Park is close to many of our other favorite dog friendly hotels and restaurants in Miami.  Pro tip: Head to the dog run on Wednesdays and then head across the street to the Intercontinental’s Paws Patio Yappy Hour.
