1. Ponce Inlet Volusia County Park

"Beware of the prickly burrs here; our pet got quite a number of them and it was difficult to remove them from his fur. The beach area was vey small and there were a number of rocks there. We need someone to lobby for us pet owners to open up more beach property to allow dogs. There seems to be something wrong when they allow cars and not dogs on the beaches."
2. Happy Trails Dog Park

Located at 4680 S. Peninsula Drive, this no-leash dog park was opened 03-23-07. It initially was called the Ponce Inlet Town Dog Park but was later renamed to Happy Trails Dog Park.
"[This park] is located next to the fire station and there is also a 'people park' for kids. It features a big dog and little dog section where dogs can play with others their own size."
