beach is located very conveniently in Key West with parking available. However, water and beach itself is not very nice. There is a lot of seaweed that produce pretty bad smell. There are other places with much nicer water.

I bring my dog here to play with his friends and he gets to run and run. I have met some very nice humans here and as a new resident it was a place where I met two of my new best friends. All the people are nice and pick up after their dogs. The dogs enjoy the fresh water.... More

We are visitors to KW and have had some unpleasant experiences with Dog Parks in other parts of the country. We were very cautious as we approached, checking out the dogs there that day. We were prepared to leave at the first sign of aggression. Fortunately we did not see any aggressive dogs, so we let ours in. Took him... More

As a full time resident of key west, I bring my 20 pound dachshund to the dog park daily. He loves to play with the other dogs there and the owners are a very friendly bunch also.

This park is used by too many aggressive big bully dogs and their ignorant owners. Check first to see who is there, cigar chomping pit bull owners, crazy lady with two huge Rotweillers, one of which lunged at my dog and took a chunk out of his side. After she told me not to worry, that it was only a... More

What a great place to mingle. We take our 3 dogs as often a we can. The people are all so friendly and the dogs get to run, visit, play off leash. A large dog and small dog fenced park allow the dogs to run. We get eating by no-see-ums so take or wear insect repellant. Love this place.

We took our Dalmatian here to run and play. It was awesome because they had two parks. One for dogs 25 lbs and under and one for 25 lbs and over. It was very clean and each owner picked up after their dog.

This park is a nice size, we took Toby there every morning, it was a nice walk. They have clean up bags and plenty of chairs to sit on. There is also a water spigot with a large water bowl too.
