About North Shore Park

Is North Shore Park Dog Friendly?

Yes! Dogs on leashes are welcome in North Shore Park. Located in downtown Saint Petersburg adjacent to Vinoy Park, entry into North Shore Park is free, and the park is open year-round, 24 hours a day. (If you’re looking for the fully fenced off-leash dog park, North Shore Dog Park is within North Shore Park.)

More Info:

North Shore Park is one of several connected waterfront parks in St. Petersburg along scenic Tampa Bay, stretching over a mile from Coffee Pot Bayou to the Vinoy Marina. North Shore Park sits between downtown St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay. The park covers 33.2 acres and features a playground, dog park, beaches, restrooms, tennis courts and beach volleyball. The park is home to a number of major annual events, including the Shopapalooza Festival and Reggae Rise Up. If you’re visiting St. Petersburg and staying in the downtown area, North Shore Park (and its neighboring parks) is THE place to exercise. The sidewalk paths are flat and paved, with plenty of manicured grass. And if you keep an eye on the water, you’re likely to see dolphin, manatee, horseshoe crabs, stingray, and many seabirds, including rare white pelicans.
