Dubbed South Florida's "Financial District" and "Manhattan of the South," Brickell promises a fun and meaningful travel experience for EVERYONE that even your furry companion won't soon forget!

One of the oldest neighborhoods in Miami, the community has the Miami River in its north, Biscayne Bay to its east, the Rickenbacker Causeway to the south, and I-95 to its west

It lies directly to the south of Downtown Miami's Central Business District, making it one of the largest financial districts in the country, offering numerous banking, investment, and financial institutions. 

One can even say Brickell is Miami's ultimate hotspot, with its explosion of newly built condominiums, trendy new bars, restaurants, and endless business opportunities--  the boom showing no signs of stopping. 

And the good news is that this neighborhood welcomes visitors of all kinds-- the young, the old, and even the furry-- with its exciting tourist spots, activities, and numerous parks and green spaces running parallel to Biscayne Bay. 

So, who says Fido can't have a blast in a bustling urban city?

Here's a list of dog-friendly parks in Brickell.

1) Brickell Key Park

Brickell Key Dr, Miami, FL 33131

Boasting scenic city views where one can disconnect from Brickell's hustle and bustle, Brickell Key Park is on the picturesque manmade island of Brickell Key, a famous walking destination for tourists and Brickellites-- and their four-legged best friends!

Aside from the best views of the Downtown skyline, this area offers paved routes along the beautiful Biscayne Bay, where you can stroll with your dog in an atmosphere of bliss and exclusivity as you pass an array of residences, the Mandarin Oriental, lush coconut trees, and a stream of yachts. 

Brickell Key Park also has an expansive grassy area dotted with picnic tables (some shaded) where dog owners can sit back and relax with a book while their dogs rest up.

Be sure to keep your pup leashed when you visit. 

While you'll find a few spots in the park that allows dogs to run freely, most of Brickell Key Park prohibits unleashed dogs.

2) 1814 Brickell Park

1814 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL 33129

A small park with shaded bench areas and a fenced children's playground and dog park, 1814 Brickell Park is another must-visit spot when traveling to Brickell with your dog. 

While the city park doesn't offer many amenities like water fountains or doggie agility equipment, it boasts Banyan trees for shade and an ample grassy area where your dogs can walk and socialize. 

1814 Brickell Park also has several picnic tables for resting while you watch your pup roam around or have a quick-packed lunch with the family.

Have a leash ready when you visit 1814 Brickell Park. 

Most of the park requires dogs on a leash except for its fenced dog park.

3) Riverfront Dog Park (Top-Pick For Residents!)

Riverfront Alley, Miami, FL 33130

If you're a Brickell local looking for a fun hangout spot for Fido, come to Riverfront Dog Park, a private dog park for small and big dogs alike.

An off-leash dog park for Brickell residents, the Riverfront Dog Park is a go-to for pet owners, where dogs can run, use the park's agility equipment, and socialize freely. 

Riverfront Dog Park also overlooks the Miami River, so a picturesque view is guaranteed with each visit. 

This dog park has poop bag stations, too, so you don't have to worry in case you run out.

Sit on the park benches while you watch your pup have the time of its life! 

The scenic Miami River and other doting dog owners will keep you company while you wait!

4) Jose Marti Park (Top-Pick!)

362 SW 4TH ST, Miami, FL 33130

Are you looking for the 'paw'-fect park amidst the city that you and your pup will enjoy? 

Brickell's Jose Marti Park may be the answer to your woes!

An urban recreational center that offers an array of activities that the whole family will enjoy, canine or otherwise, Jose Marti Park features several amenities, such as sports areas for baseball and basketball, outdoor gym equipment, picnic tables, and a playground for the kids. 

The park also sits directly on the waterfront, so it's the perfect spot for relaxation, the sound of the ocean waves resounding in your ear! 

With little grass in this park, expect tons of cement walkways to stroll on with Fido. 

In any case, the park makes up for its lack of grass with several shade trees, where your pup can relax by your side under the trees as you two share a picnic snack or lunch. 

5) Riverside Park

799 SW 4th St, Miami, FL 33130 

A compact neighborhood park with a sports area, children's playground, and grassy open space to stroll around with Fido, Riverside Park is a nice spot to visit after a tiring day out in Brickell.

Home to several community events and family gatherings, the park boasts a baseball diamond for your exciting baseball games, a basketball court, a kiddy playground full of equipment, and is nearby several restaurants for when you're feeling famished. 

It's a paw-some park to bike around or walk the dogs, but be sure to put them on a leash when you visit!

6) Brickell Park (Mary Brickell Park)

501 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL 33131

Located south of the Miami Circle, Brickell Park, also known as Mary Brickell Park, is a quiet shady spot amidst the downtown area, brimming with big oak and gumbo limbo trees, grassy spaces, and natural ground contours. 

Aside from being a local hangout, this two-and-a-half acre park is also home to the historic Brickell family mausoleum, dating to 1924! 

Although the Brickell family burials have since relocated to other cemeteries in Miami, Brickell Park was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1989 and is considered an archaeological site where the sole surviving structure from the famous family that started it all lies!

And yes, you can bring your pup here with you! Just be sure to put it on a leash as you explore its entirety. 

Though not much is going around in this area, it's conveniently within the bustle of the city, so it's an easy walk from shops and restaurants!

7) Southside Park (Top-Pick!)

140 SW 11th St, Miami, FL 33130

A large urban park frequently visited by families and dog owners, Southside Park is the 'place-to-be' when Fido needs some 'downtime' with his furry buddies!

Famous for the grassy open area and basketball court, the two-acre park is perfect for strolling, socializing, and a game of basketball with the locals. 

It also boasts a playground for the kids and picnic tables & benches for snacking or resting.

Do you need a drink under the warm Miami sun? 

Southside Park has water fountains to take care of your thirst!

All the park amenities are linked by a small concrete pathway surrounded by trees and grassy terrain on all sides, and you'll often hear birds chirping away in the trees. 

Indeed, a beautiful space to share with your dog, where you can run, play or go for a walk. 

Don't forget your leash! 

8) Alice Wainwright Park (Top-Pick!)

2845 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL 33129

A bayfront nature reserve and park that spans 28 acres and offers stunning views of Biscayne Bay, shared by the neighborhoods of Coconut Grove and Brickell, Alice Wainright Park is a dog-friendly nature enclave with tons of activities for visitors, from trails to basketball courts.

Thanks to its open and spacious area, humans and their pups can share a huge secluded space to explore. 

The park boasts a grassy, sandy area lined with gumbo limbo and palm trees. 

An asphalt path connects it to the park's world-class amenities, like a children's playground, fenced-in basketball court, picnic pavilion, restrooms, and picnic tables.

Meanwhile, at the edge of the park, right on the shore, you'll enjoy a gorgeous view of the bay, perfect for some nature shots or taking a minute to soak up all Mother Earth's glory.

But did you know these amenities are only a third of the nature spot's space? 

It means that more than half of Alice Wainright Park is brimming with thick trees! 

A sandy trail path along its southern portion connects the picnic pavilions to the untouched area, giving you and your dog an expansive nature-filled haven to uncover in Brickell!

Be sure to bring your dog's leash!
