“Heaven for Dogs”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

We saw the high ratings on Bring Fido for this dog park and it was wonderful. For starters this is a clean beach, cleaner than DeSoto in St Pete's and the sand is very nice. Although it can get crowded the beach is deep enough for people and pets. Plus everyone seemed well behaved and picked up after their pooches. There is an area to rinse off the sand and run them on the grass to dry off. Doggie bags are provided. We can't say enough good about this. Only note - it's a bit of a walk from the parking lot to the beach - but that's not a negative just an observation. Great place to wear the dogs out!

Reviewed February 8, 2012

Nice to have a park to let your dog run around and not have to worry he will be hit by a car. Place is clean and people are very nice. My dog loves to go there

“Great for my dogs”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

Surprisingly clean, fun little dog park. People are friendly, and the attached dog beach is a fave for my husky who likes to play in the water in the hot summer.

“Very nice facilities for furry friends”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Many people don't realize that most Florida beaches ban dogs but Venice has established this one specifically for dogs and their owners. There is a nice parking area and restrooms and the beach is designate for sharing with dogs. Although I don't have a dog down here I enjoy walking this beach to see the dogs romp together in the surf.

“Doggie Fun”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

Treat your pet to a day at the beach. It's fun to watch them run up and down the beach in the surf and chase their new friends around. There are hoses to wash up after. Don't forget to 'pick up' after your pet, bags provided.
