Unravel Miami's most well-kept secret and immerse yourself in this blossoming residential enclave of Edgewater, the city's most up-and-coming neighborhood. 

This small coastal slice in mainland Miami is a destination you and Fido can enjoy to your hearts' content!

A residential community covering about 1.68 square miles, Edgewater sits between Midtown and the Upper East Side to the north and Downtown Miami to the south

Its official eastern border lies a few miles out in the Intracoastal Waterway, boasting jurisdiction over Pace Picnic Island, about 3/4 mile offshore. 

Known as a quiet enclave off-the-beaten-path, generally overlooked by tourists, Edgewater provides a laid-back, nature-oriented yet urban lifestyle with easy access to the Downtown Arts District, the Wynwood Arts District, the Design District, Brickell, and South Beach.

Nonetheless, despite its lack of tourist traffic and popularity, it offers a vibrant social scene, piquing interest with its many bars, restaurants, cafes, and natural and cultural attractions even FURRY companions will love! 

Yes, folks, Edgewater is PET-APPROVED!

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

1) Dog Park - Margaret Pace Park (Top-Pick!) 

1745 N Bayshore Dr, Miami, FL 33132

Set directly on Biscayne Bay amid Edgewater's residential condos, Margaret Pace Park is home to a dog-friendly park shared by the neighborhoods of Downtown Miami and Edgewater.

Named for one of Miami's most important preservationists, the park boasts picturesque waterfront views of the Venetian Islands and Miami Beach beyond. 

At Margaret Pace Park, you're likely to spot joggers stretching after an evening run and friendly pickup games at the park's basketball, tennis, and volleyball courts. 

It's also a famous spot where locals walk their dogs along the waterfront and watch them play in the enclosed dog park.

Yes, this park has a dedicated dog park for your pups!

The half-acre Margaret Pace Dog Park includes two fenced areas for off-leash play - one for dogs over 25 pounds and another for smaller dogs, park bench seating, "fire hydrants," and water fountains for dogs and 'hoomans.'

Cleanup bags are available for your convenience, and owners must pick up and properly dispose of their dog's waste. 

Don't forget to bring a leash!

2) Bayfront Park 

301 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33132

In a city of skyscrapers, Bayfront Park provides a welcome green space in near Edgewater, only 7 minutes away! 

An urban park spanning 32 acres in the heart of the urban center, Bayfront Park is perfect for families who want to relax, play, or exercise around Edgewater with Fido! What's more, the park boasts a waterfront location on Biscayne Bay.

In fact, when describing Bayfront Park, iconic is an understatement! 

The famous recreational destination offers vast open lawn spaces, performance venues with special event lighting and VIP seating areas, a tropical rock garden, and a waterfall that dates back to 1926. 

The park also hosts many events, such as yoga, movie nights, and salsa classes, all of which are free, and a handful of paid events, such as festivals and concerts. 

Other park amenities include tree-lined paths, benches, picnic tables, FPL Solar Amphitheater, The Tina Hills Pavilion, and the Lee & Tina Hills PlayGround for the kids. Dogs are allowed in the park on a leash.

3) Maurice A. Ferré Park (Top-Pick!) 

1075 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33132

Considered an extension of Downtown Miami's Bayfront Park, Maurice A. Ferré Park is a 30-acre public urban park with the longest waterfront bay walk in Miami, and a promenade from Biscayne Boulevard to Biscayne Bay, providing pedestrian access to a fascinating collection of museums.

And yes, this park is dog-friendly, too, only a 4-minute drive from Edgewater —just be sure to put them on a leash.

Come to Maurice A. Ferré Park for a picture-perfect spot for strolling or jogging. 

The park features the Plaza of the Spanish Navy/Plaza de la Marina Española, home to a monument that honors the Spanish Navy that arrived in the Americas on Oct. 12, 1492. 

It was erected in 1991 near the mooring site of the Spanish tall ship Juan Sebastian Elcano by Mayor Xavier Suarez and Consul General Erik I. Martel.

The Dogs & Cats Walkway is another exhibition pet lovers will want to see. 

It features 52 oversized aluminum sculptures of 26 dogs and 26 cats painted by local artists.

And you know what else is paw-some about Maurice A. Ferré Park? 

It has a fenced dog park within its perimeters! 

Let your dogs off their leash and tire them out as you sit on the benches and watch them have the time of their lives!

Maurice A. Ferré Park is also near a few landmarks, including the American Airlines Arena, Bayside Marketplace, the Perez Art Museum Miami, and the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science.
