Dog-Friendly Parks near Indian Creek Village
Tiny and unassuming, nestled on the sparkling Biscayne Bay waters, the elite community of Indian Creek Village has proven to be one of Miami's choice neighborhoods, enhancing the lives of its affluent residents and the already-pampered furry pets under their care!
