There is a nice pavilion with restrooms, interesting plaques on the walls with information about nearby animals, tables, and drink machines. There are some grills around to use and plenty of boardwalks to get you down to the beach. They allow dogs at this park also. Depending on where you go down to the beaches islands are formed and go... More

I was so excited to take my dogs here, since it's just about the only place to let dogs actually swim. I was very disappointed to pull up at the gate only to be told the parking fee is cash only. I reviewed the park's website prior to driving almost an hour to get there and I didn't see a... More

Took my dogs to this park over the weekend. We usually take them to Port Orange Inlet dog park, which is right across the little bay from Dunes Park. New Smyrna Dunes park is an amazing place, it allows way more room for pets to run, it is equipped with pet shower, and water ball and of course waste stations.... More

See sand dunes the way they were before development came along. The boardwalk winds through pristine dunes where you can see protected gopher tortoises along with birds and native flowers. The boardwalk and dunes are worth the time in themselves. The access points to the beach along the inlet are a bonus. Dogs are not only allowed, but facilities are... More

The park and boardwalk are a perfect overview of the NSB area. Most of the year you are bound to see gopher turtles eating their lunch in the dunes. The views are spectacular...Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, fisherman on the jetty and surfers enjoying the waves. A big plus is the doggy beach at the end of the cove. Most of the... More

It's great the city of New Smyrna dedicates a stretch of beach (on the Halifax River) for people to bring their dogs to enjoy the water. The park is clean and has plenty of trash bins for throwing away dog waste. It's also super helpful to have the two hoses for cleaning off the pups before heading home. The biggest... More

It's a great beach spot with a good walkway over the natural Florida scrub land. A nice place to swim too!
