Dive into Midtown Miami, a quaint-but-hip area brimming with art, glamour, and nature-- and one of Magic City's most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods to date that you and your pup can explore to your hearts' content!

Sandwiched between Miami's two most iconic art districts, Midtown lies north of Downtown Miami, bounded by the street-art-famous Wynwood to its west, luxurious waterfront Edgewater to its east, and chic Design District to its north.

It's a small, six-block community of high-rise apartments that promotes easy and convenient living and commuting and boasts shops and some of the best galleries in town!

And let me tell you, this vibrant community keeps on growing, still!

Good news for dog lovers, this pocket-sized neighborhood is surrounded by parks too, where you can bring Fido for a tour, a walk, and a meaningful experience in Midtown!

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

1) Roberto Clemente Park (Top-Pick!)

101 NW 34th St, Miami, FL 33127

If you're craving the outdoors, nothing beats a memorable visit to Roberto Clemente Park, Wynwood's only pocket park, a 2-minute walk from Midtown!

A large plot of grass with amenities stacked around it, the famous park is open to humans and pups to explore and enjoy. 

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. 

Once inside, a perimeter sidewalk trail encompasses the area, with plenty of shady spots to relax and sit under to rest. 

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.

Other park amenities include a playground, basketball court, football field, picnic tables, an outdoor sports area, and a recreation center.

Don't forget to bring your pup's lead-- Roberto Clemente Park only allows dog visitors on a leash.

2) Albert Pallot Park (Top-Pick!)

3808 NE 6th Ave, Miami, FL 33137

Folks say hello to Jose Milton Park at E. Albert Pallot Greenspace in Midtown, a design-forward green space perfect in its simplicity: a well-manicured, thoughtfully planned lawn with a winding path, a playground, a kayak ramp, and a stunning, unobstructed view of Biscayne Bay. 

The 3-acre park offers a large grassy area for picnics and a concrete area right before the water with benches to sit. 

You'll find your fair share of dog walkers, rollerbladers, and kids on the playground, especially during the late afternoons.

Bring water bottles to share and doggie clean-up bags to keep this park pup-friendly. 

And remember-- your fluffy friend needs to be kept on a leash throughout your visit!

3) Dorsey Park 

1701 NW 1st Ave, Miami, FL 33136

An unassuming municipal park with athletic fields & courts, plus an array of murals, Dorsey Park is another nearby dog-friendly park you can explore with Fido, only a 3-minute drive from Midtown.

At Dorsey Park, visitors can enjoy spots for baseball and basketball and a racquetball court. 

There are also picnic tables, an outdoor sports area, a playground for the kids, and outdoor gym equipment for a quick exercise. 

Best of all, the park allows dogs on a leash, so you can let Fido join in on the fun while you're here!

Don't worry about a long commute-- getting here will be a breeze and memorable, too, especially with your pup in tow!

4) Paraiso Park 

3001 NE 7th Ave, Miami, FL 33137

Edgewood residents are enjoying a new park in the city, a .6-acre patch of greenery amidst four high-rise condominiums constructed in the recently created Paraiso District, Paraiso Park. 

And luckily, you can, too, since it's only a 4-minute drive from Midtown!

While the park may be tiny, it is home to several significant amenities: an outdoor fitness zone, a children's playground, and a fenced-in dog park. 

Three Kompan Fitness Zone machines are on rubberized safety flooring in its western section.

Meanwhile, a children's playground is built on a large expanse of blue safety surfacing at the southernmost part. It features a three-seater spinning bouncer, a tall rope climber, a couple of benches, and a water fountain. 

It is not a fenced space, but low hedges and security cameras help keep kids protected.

Lastly, Paraiso Park's most popular amenity is the fenced-in dog park in the western section, next to the fitness zone. 

A continuous stream of dog walkers leading their charges to this spot for a game of fetch or just a romp with other furry friends, and there is a sculptural metal fence installed on gravel and a pet-waste station with bags (another stand outside the dog park). 

You'll also find a dual human-canine water fountain and two benches on concrete slabs. 

Two additional wooden benches are within the garden area facing the water. 

Other amenities include night lighting and landscape lighting, and decorative light wraps around many of the park's native and non-native trees, such as oak, seagrape, palms, and royal poincianas.

Don't forget your dog's leash!

5) 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 a hidden gem tucked away just north of Downtown Miami, a dog-friendly park shared by the neighborhoods of Downtown Miami and Edgewater.

And you'll be happy to know this famous dog park is only a 5-minute drive from Midtown!

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!

6) Maurice A. Ferré Park 

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. 

It is a 6-minute drive from Midtown.

And yes, this park is dog-friendly, too! 

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.

7) Juan Pablo Duarte Park 

1776 NW 28th Street, Miami, FL 33142

Take advantage of Miami's gorgeous weather at Juan Pablo Duarte Park, one of Allapattah's favorite hangout spots, only a 7-minute drive from Midtown.

Here, you'll find large trees and generous swaths of grass offer a peaceful retreat from the city, and a small outdoor gym area and jogging trails provide a scenic place to get a quick workout in.
