465 NE 77th Street Rd, Miami, FL 33138
On the banks of the historic Little River, wedged up against the bustling neighborhood of Miami Ironside, sits a patch of grass where you can lie about and let your dog run around.
Welcome to Manatee Bend Park, a 1.2-acre park with open green spaces and fields right on the river, with tall trees that cover more than half of it under shade.
Here, dog lovers and their pups can stroll its small, partly-shaded looping concrete trail, perimeter sidewalk, and a concrete trail that follows along the river's edge.
It offers benches along the edge of the grass and a rocky shore that descends into the water.
One of the best features of this park is the fact that you can view manatees at this park.
With picnic tables and benches available, there is plenty of room to sit and relax on the shore, where you can view hordes of sea cows relaxing in the water.
Due to this, doggie visitors must remain on a leash while at Manatee Bend Park.

If you're craving the outdoors, nothing beats a memorable visit to Roberto Clemente Park, Wynwood's only pocket park, a 5-minute drive from Little Haiti!

Roberto Clemente Park is fully fenced-in, surrounded by calm streets and lanes of family neighborhoods, so you're sure to have a quiet and secluded time with your furry pal while you're here.

Its western side is the most open, with a large grassy field with two baseball diamonds.
Meanwhile, the park's eastern side also has grassy fields that offer spots for Fido to play in the grass.
Some benches line the pathways, too, where you can sit and enjoy the sights of the park.
