1. Sombrero Beach
One of our readers said leashed dogs are allowed on this beach, but we have also read that it's not a pet friendly beach. Use caution and read any Ordinance signs in the area before taking your dog for a walk here.
2. Dog Park - under development.
Some time ago, we were told a citizen's group had been busy promoting a dog park here. The City Council was supposedly exploring the use of an acre of city-owned property behind Marathon City Hall, between 98th and 99th Streets, an area also known as the "events field." Since then, one of our readers said this area is used, but isn't fenced and has no facilities. If you have more up to date info, we'd appreciate you sharing it with us.
3. Other areas
One of our readers wrote us and said there are several other pet friendly areas in Marathon. We have very limited info about the following:
** A dedicated fenced in dog park by the Rotary Children's Park.
** Cocoa Plum Beach.
NOTE: We can't visit every area on a regular basis, so if you have information about any dog parks or beaches, or any other animal recreation facilities, in the Marathon area, please contact FloridaPets.net.
