“Nice Idea, Needs More Maintenance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This dog park, located across the street from the beach, consists of two separate areas. Entrance to both areas is double gated to keep your pet in check while entering and exiting. The smaller of the two areas is designated for small dogs. The larger L shape area is designated for large and all dogs. The park itself is a little gritty, not much grass and shabby human seating dotted throughout the park. There is a communal water fountain for the animals. Dogs seem to enjoy the outing with little rituals of sniffing greeting each newcomer. Obviously, some dogs (and owners) have better manners than others. Definitely a good stop to give your pet some exercise.

This park is located on Higgs beach and is a great fenced in area for dogs of all types. This area was clean with seating available.

“Stop being so selfish!! Bring puppy here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Best dog playground in Key West. Very well done, maintained and well respected. The dogs ALWAYS have a blast. They seems to never ever fight, not that I have seen. It seems they are always so happy to just stretch out and really run. Key West isn't a very big island and tends to force puppy to be cramped up. Stop being so selfish and spend a great afternoon here. Bring some coffee and a paper. If there are other dogs there, they are running the show. They pack up and are just so happy. It's always good to see.

“Small dogs can play separate from big dogs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

It's just a blocked off section of a county park, but there's good room to roam and small dogs can have their own space or join the bigger dogs. Must have a rabies tag.
