Place Category: Dog Parks
Located near the boat ramps on the east side of the Seaplane Basin in south Tampa. This dog park/beach is fenced on three sides, the fourth side being the water of Tampa/Hillsborough Bay. At this beach, your dog can have the freedom and safety to run while having access to the water and you can relax and enjoy yourself without worrying about your dog running away.
This dog park has a small beach of white fluffy sand with some small rocks going out to the shallow rock-free water of Hillsborough Bay. It has no time-out or small dog area and it's a popular park with limited seating. NOTE: There's another separate dog park across the parking lot, but it has no water access or shade.
Web Mistress Note: As further clarification of the reader below, we contacted Tampa Parks & Recreation Department and this is what they told us about dogs and Davis Island:
"There is a public beach area on Davis Island as well as a dog park, which includes an area for the dogs to play in the water. The signs which state 'No Dogs On Beach' refers to the public beach area, as we do not allow dogs on any of our public beaches. The dog park has a dry area, and to the left of that area on the other side of the driveway is the area where dogs can play in the water. This area is on the channel side at the end of the airport property."Please Share...
