Lying in the heart of the bustling Metropolitan Area, embracing the beautiful Biscayne Bay, Venetian Islands is a link of six manmade islands that offers a Miami island (dog-friendly) getaway to remember!

Nestled in the heart of Biscayne Bay's blue waters, connected by the Venetian Causeway from the mainland to the famous Miami Beach, Venetian Islands represent the best of Miami's luxurious lifestyle and rich history.

The islands are, from west to east: Biscayne Island, San Marco Island, San Marino Island, Di Lido Island, Rivo Alto Island, and Belle Isle. 

The former three islands are considered part of Miami, while the remaining three are considered part of Miami Beach, which means everything great about the city is just MINUTES away from the islands!

Yes, even the most beautiful dog-friendly parks!

Here's a list of dog-friendly parks near the Venetian Islands.

1) Belle Isle Park (Top-Pick!)

Belle Isle Park, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Welcome to Belle Isle Park, home to one of Miami Beach's dog parks, the Belle Isle Dog Park, a fantastic destination made just for Fido!

Located in the center of a small island connecting Miami Beach to the city, Belle Isle Park offers plenty of amenities you can enjoy, such as a winding, paved walkway that guides you through the park perimeters, always green and filled with soft, well-maintained grass, water fountains for you and your pup, and benches under shade trees.

Belle Isle Park also has a playground for kids.

Meanwhile, Belle Isle Dog Park has two separate enclosures within the dog play area for small and big dogs. 

Poop bags are available too.

Don't forget to bring a leash! 

You'll need it when coming in and out of the park.

2) Maurice Gibb Memorial Park  

18th St & Purdy Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Maurice Gibb Memorial Park is a waterfront park with playgrounds and paths that honors the late Bee Gees member. 

It has beautiful views of the water and is a popular place for couples, dog owners, and families. 

Yes, folks, this park allows dogs within its perimeter as long as they're leashed!

The beautiful natural area has big trees that provide shade, a playground for kids, and many paths to walk on. 

There is also a wooden platform on the water, covered by trees, for enjoying the breeze.

It's a peaceful park to bring Fido for some sun and nature appreciation, a 3-minute drive from Venetian Islands.

Adjacent to the park is the Sunset Harbour condos and its marina, so it makes for some fun people-watching and boat-watching, too!

2) Pride Park 

1809 Meridian Ave., Miami Beach, FL 33139

Relax at Miami Beach's new 5.8-acre Pride Park, across from the Miami Beach Convention Center! 

It's a 5-minute drive from Venetian Islands.

Along with Miami Beach Botanical Garden and several other attractions, it is part of the Miami Beach City Center Campus in the Miami Beach Convention Center district. 

Pride Park, which is named in support of the LGBTQ+ community, and to promote civic pride in the City of Miami Beach, offers a shaded respite with a veterans memorial, walkways, a sculpture by celebrated artists Elmgreen & Dragset, and a central lawn. 

The park allows dogs on leashes.

Whether you're in the area for a convention or just exploring Miami Beach, Pride Park is a great place to unwind while surrounded by nature.

4) Miami Beach Soundscape

Miami Beach Soundscape Park is the green heart of Frank Gehry's New World Symphony campus, a world-class destination that marries music, design, and culture. 

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! 

And the good news? 

It's only a 6-minute drive from Venetian Islands.

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.

Don't forget to bring a leash!

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!
