    Atlantic Beach Dog Park

    Atlantic Beach Dog Park By Patricia Collier, Owner, FloridaPets.net The Atlantic Beach Dog Park is the newest pet friendly place in the Jacksonville area. The grand opening was held Saturday, January 22, at the park’s location at 268 Aquatic Drive, next to the Sunrise Community Church in Atlantic Beach. The off-leash dog park was founded after a small group of regular citizens identified a need and worked with city officials to make it a reality. Rick Carper, Public Works Director and City Engineer for the City of Atlantic Beach, said he was impressed by the resident-led effort. “The opening was very well attended, with at least 25 new members signing up to use the dog park,” Carper said, “and many more application packets handed out.” Donna Bagby, president of the dog park committee, said the City of Atlantic Beach donated the site for the park, which City workers then constructed. “There were about 100 people in attendance at the opening and many, many dogs,” Bagby said, “We received a lot of good feedback afterwards.” Membership fees will be the main source of funds to maintain the dog park and its amenities, and to fund special projects, such as an irrigation system and periodic sod replacement. Ongoing fundraising, such as personalized brick and t-shirt sales, will also be important for the park's upkeep.

  • Apollo Beach

    Apollo Beach Note: A kind reader advised us of this location, what she called a "semi dog park." It is located in at 6767 Surfside Blvd., in South Hillsborough County. Directions: go south on Rt 41, turn right on Apollo Beach Blvd. (There is a Publix on the right.) Take that street all the way down until it dead ends, go right at the dead end and take that until it dead ends into the park parking lot. Reader Notes: "Went there today (08-28-10) and they have built steps that lead right into the water during high tide. But you can walk down the point and there is a beach. VERY NICE place for the dogs." "We went to Apollo Beach and it wasn't too bad. Water seemed a little mucky...but was really warm and the babies LOVED it! Tell everyone to be sure NO ONE goes into the grassy areas towards the beach. We thought we'd take the babies there to 'go'...they ended up with stickers in their paws and faces and on our feet! I believe the grassy areas near the pavillions is better for going potty,but everyone should be aware. Also, you do have to kind of crawl down and then up a little trench like area cut into the little cliff...to get to the water. It wasn't too bad, but the sand does move under your feet." "It's actually a beach, not a park. It is located right near the Teco plant. You can take your dogs there, but they need to be leashed. They can however, play in the water. There really isn't anyone there looking to make sure a dog is on a leash. Many times I have seen people let their dogs play in the water leash free.... you must clean up after your dogs! There are special baggies supplied in case someone forgets to bring one." "There will probably will be people there sunbathing if it's nice, but it's more a walking, take your dog kind of beach, rather than the sunbathing, swimming kind of beach. Just though i would let you know because I go to this park at least 5 times a month with my puppy and he loves it. " "I went to the park today with my golden retriever. Although the park does still exist, the beach is now a cliff - I guess that the weather has been bad to the coastline here - we had to scoot down a 8-10 foot dune - and there was less than 2 ft. of beach before the water began."
