Welcome to "America's Riviera," a cosmopolitan city whose residents are as diverse as its visitors, the ever-famous Miami Beach-- THE choice destination to experience in Magic City when traveling with a four-legged companion!

Nestled on natural and manmade islands between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach offers a smorgasbord of things to do and sights to see.

It is comprised of the South Beach neighborhood, located at the southernmost 2.5 square miles (6.5 km2) of the city, along with Downtown Miami and the Port of Miami, collectively forming the commercial center of South Florida.

From quaint cafes to contemporary art museums and botanical gardens to lit drag brunches, this coastal resort city offers anything and everything AMAZING

Not to mention, it's also been one of America's most famous beach resorts since the early 20th century.

Indeed, there's ALWAYS something for everyone in Miami Beach-- 'hooman' or otherwise!

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

5) Flamingo Park

11 Street & Jefferson Ave., Miami Beach FL 33139

Nestled in the heart of South Beach is a 36.53-acre park that dates back to 1950 that your pup will love to explore!

Welcome to Flamingo Park, a famous South Beach recreational destination with a beautifully landscaped state-of-the-art aquatic facility, a world-class baseball stadium, basketball courts, handball/racquetball courts, a memorial football stadium/running track, and soccer and softball fields. 

Yes, folks, this park is jampacked with activities, and best of all, it has a bark park for canine visitors too!

The dog park has two separate areas, one opened at a time, to continuously serve the users. 

The bark park serves as a social setting for owners to let their dogs off-leash, but remember to clean up after your pup and maintain them on a leash in all other areas of Flamingo Park.

Water is available in the runs, so Fido can grab a drink when needed. 

The property is also home to agility and training equipment and a bike and walking track, where Fido is welcome to join his family on a lead.

Occupying the beachfront, from 5th to 15th Street, Lummus Park is a 74-acre public urban park and one of South Beach's hidden gems.

While dogs aren't allowed to set foot on the actual beach, they're free to roam leashed on the park's walkways and grassy areas 24/7, with one of the paved walkways running parallel to the beach! 

Lummus Park is also perfect for sunbathing, swimming, and fitness, all of which dog owners can do after a fun stroll around the park perimeters.

If your pup loves walks, this ten-block stretch in South Beach is for you!

7) Marjory Stoneman Douglas Ocean Beach Park  

225 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33139

At the south of Ocean Drive is another picturesque and tranquil park for outdoor lovers and dog owners who want to avoid the crowds-- Marjory Stoneman Douglas Ocean Beach Park.

While the park isn't as famous as South Pointe Park, Hobie Island Beach Park, or Haulover Beach Dog Park, it offers a safe space for a calm, leashed stroll with your pup at its entrance and is adjacent to the beach for some sun and fun on the sand. 

Other park amenities include an expansive playground for the kids, choice spots for a picnic, a lengthy bike/walk path, and benches for relaxing.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas Ocean Beach Park is also nestled between South Point and Art Deco Drive, so you'll be close to an array of restaurants and hotels!

The lush, contemporary park is the perfect place for visitors to unwind year-round under the shade of trees or a starlit sky-- whether you're human or the furry kind!

Iconic pergolas embrace the park edges, their shape inspired by the puffy cumulous clouds inherent in South Florida's tropical climate. 

Their hand-fabricated painted aluminum structures not only provide shade but also support the spectacular blooms of bougainvillea vines, highlighting a threshold of color at the park's points of entry.

One of the park's most prominent features is an unprecedented, distinctive, and ambitious audio-visual program that creates an outdoor theatre – offering free performances at concert-level quality. 

The design of a family of custom architectural elements– the Ballet Bar, the Projection Tower, and the Media Hydrants – transformed what could have been an overwhelming number of park structures into an integrated and lyrical park element.

This 2.5-acre urban park welcomes well-behaved, leashed dogs at most of its events, including concerts, films, yoga, and other public gatherings. 

Dogs are allowed on the park grounds but not in the adjacent New World Symphony building.

Washington Park, 201 2nd St, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Two of Miami Beach's famous dog hangouts are the Washington Avenue Park's Bark Parks, located at the North East Corner of Washington Avenue and 2nd Street. 

Yes, there are two of them!

Found in North Beach Oceanside Park, Bark Beach is your pup's perfect spot for sun, sand, and sea!

While the entire beach area along North Beach Oceanside Park is off-limits to non-human visitors, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays between 1:30 PM and 5:30 PM are an exception! 

During this period, the section between 80th and 81st Streets becomes an off-leash doggy paradise! 

That's right, your dog can romp in the sand and splash in the water during these special dog-designated hours, but be sure they keep within the dog beach area.

Let your dog play under the sun, crush the sand castle you built, or get their paws wet on the beach. 

Your dog can run the stretch without a leash,  but keep it on hand, as you'll need it when entering and exiting Bark Beach and in the rest of the park. 

If you didn't know, North Beach Oceanside Park also has another treasure for dogs, a dog park within the park! 

It has two double-fenced dog-run areas, one for large dogs and one for small dogs, so your pup can ditch the leash again inside the area!

It also has its own dog park!

Other dog park amenities include a complimentary dog waste collection station and disposal can.

Don't forget to bring a leash! 

While the Bark Park allows dogs to explore without it, you'll need to put your pup on a lead in the rest of Fairway Park.

14) Pinetree Dog Park-Pinetree Park  

4493 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33140

A serene waterfront natural area that features shady trees, leisure areas, asphalt walking paths, a kayak launch, and more, Pinetree Park is a dreamy nature destination that you can share with Fido!

It is known as one of Miami Beach's premier dog-furiendly beaches, attracting people and their pooches from all over the world to its sandy shores!

Yes, folks, there are tons of fun to be had at this paw-some beach!
