Dog-Friendly Parks in Carol City
Everyone needs a little sunshine and lush greens, even your four-legged pals (yes, with Fido, it's a must!), and Carol City boasts easy access to dog-friendly parks in and around Miami Gardens!
A straightforward neighborhood maintaining the fabric of the Miami Gardens community, Carol City is a 7.7 square-mile area sharing Miami Gardens' natural beauty, delicious Caribbean soul food, arts, culture, and entertainment.
Albeit finding a park that welcomes dog lovers and their furry pals within the area may be a feat, Carol City and Miami Gardens make up for it with a few choice dog-friendly parks nearby!
And I know that instantly put a smile on your face!
So, go ahead and pack those Fido essentials because I have all the dog-friendly spots around Carol City covered!
Here's a list of dog-friendly parks in Carol City.
1) Buccaneer Park (Top-Pick!)
20601 NW 32nd Ave, Miami Gardens, FL 33056
A Miami Gardens park with exciting amenities and expansive green spaces, Buccaneer Park is your best bet if you're looking to take your pup on a lovely stroll around the city.
With a basketball court, on-site grills, picnic shelters, a kids' playground, a splash pad, tennis courts, and a walking trail, it's one of your must-visits in Carol City!
Buccaneer Park also has a multipurpose open area for sports or relaxing amidst nature.
Dogs on leashes are allowed in Buccaneer Park, but be sure to clean up after them to maintain the cleanliness of its facilities.
2) Acadia Park
5351 NW 195th Dr, Opa-locka, FL 33055
Opa-Locka's Acadia Park is another good park to visit if traveling with a furry companion, only a 3-minute drive from Carol City.
Acadia Park has a basketball court and an expansive playground for the kids, open from sunrise to sunset.
Arcadia Park also has a wide open space for multipurpose use, close to about two football fields, so feeling cramped here is out of the question!
And yes, Acadia Park is dog-friendly, so bring a leash and spend some quality time with Fido at the park!
19405 NW 82nd Ave, Hialeah, FL 33015
For pure fun under the sun and green spaces to share with your pup in Hialeah, come to Spanish Lake Park, a park that offers the perfect spot for a stroll and picnic date with Fido, nine minutes from Carol City!
While there is no structured programming available at this terrific spot, Spanish Lake Park boasts a pavilion offering shade from the sun and picnic-style seating, abundant grassy areas for frisbee, ball, or a game of tug, and a cement walkway that features fantastic views of the region.
Trees throughout the grounds provide ample shade to ensure no one goes home with a sunburn as a souvenir of their fun visit!
Please bring a lead for your pup and some water to avoid dehydration.
4) Bark Park-Amelia Earhart Park (Top-Pick!)
401 E 65th St, Hialeah, FL 33013
If you need a little time to wind down, relax, and reflect while enjoying a couple of activities in between, Hialeah offers a sprawling urban outdoor sports and recreation complex with a fascinating history, situated in the northern stretches just south of Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport-- Amelia Earhart Park!
And the good news is that it's a 14-minute drive from Carol City!
A 515-acre park that encompasses a soccer complex with four mini fields, a petting zoo, a disc golf course, bike trails, sand volleyball courts, and an island playground, Amelia Earhart Park draws dog owners with yet another paw-some amenity, an enormous five-acre bark park!
The doggy area has small and large dog sections, both offering expansive, grass-carpeted spaces to run and mingle with pals.
When it's hot out, the Bark Park provides plenty of shade and has water sprays to help keep dogs feeling fresh.
Water fountains for people and pups, benches and picnic tables, doggie waste bags, and trash cans are also available.
And be sure to bring Fido's leash!
Entering and exiting the dog park and exploring the rest of Amelia Earhart Park requires dogs on leashes.
5) Gordon Park at Aventura Isles (Top-Pick!)
333 Ives Dairy Rd, Miami, FL 33179
Are you looking for an off-leash area for your pup near Carol City?
Say no more!
Gordon Park at Aventura Isles, a 15-minute drive from the city, is your best bet!
An exciting little neighborhood park built to serve Aventura Isles and the neighboring California club communities, Gordon Park offers well-constructed tot-lot, smooth jogging paths, and shade trees for protection from the warm sun.
Despite its lack of further amenities, this park is home to a dog park with separate areas for small and large breeds, so a visit to this park is recommended for dog owners traveling to Miami Gardens!
Bring a leash and your pup's drinking water when you drop by the park.
Since it's a 'walking' park, you'll have to park off the road to access this hidden gem!
