Note: Dogs are not permitted on area beaches. Trust us, there is little tolerance for dogs on public beaches in Brevard County, as reflected by comments we receive from readers and from editorials we read in area media outlets.
Mitchell Ellington Park
According to a few readers, this park has been on the drawing board for some time, at least since 2005, but the county keeps putting funding on the back burner. Interested citizens should contact Brevard County Commissioners and ask for consideration for funding of a dog park at this - or another appropriate location. Or, perhaps a grassroots effort could be organized - with the local humane society and/or animal rescue groups - and could involve fundraising events, and a proposal to share cost for the dog park with the county.
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 Merritt Island area, please contact FloridaPets.net.
