This park is located on the South side Of Ponce Inlet and provides a great view of where the Indian River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Your dog will love this place and so will you.

Old-style Florida nature. Run by Volusia County. This is why we need to support state and local parks every bit as much as "the Mouse".

We go to the Smyrna Dunes Park each morning of our vacation to watch the sunrise and take a walk around the point. The boardwalk improvements are awesome! So nice! We enjoyed this park again this year and will be back next.

There is a parking lot at the dog park, but it requires a $5 admission. There is also a dog washing area, an entrance to the boardwalk, and beach and Inlet access.

Don't think you can use it. But, after 5 p.m. the park is free. If you are staying for more than 2 days and want to go with the dogs during the day. Buy the pass. You can go in and out of the park as many times during the... More
