If you’re bringing your four-legged family member along on your Emerald Coast getaway, you’ll want to be sure to find some locations for your dog to get out and get some exercise. Those staying in the Destin area will want to check out Destin Dog Park, a great place to bring your pet.

Fun for Dogs of All Sizes at the Destin Dog Park in FL

The Destin Dog Park is comprised of a large fenced grassy area, perfect for your dog to run and play. Open since 2012, the three-acre park includes separate enclosures for large dogs and small dogs, keeping play time safe and friendly. Large open spaces provide plenty of room for canines to stretch their legs, where they can run and explore in the lush Bermuda grass or laze in the shade of the large pine and oak trees. Relax on one of the benches as your dog enjoys the space, sunshine, and companionship with other dogs. When everyone is ready for a break, water stations are available for both you and your pet. Be sure to leave all other food and drinks outside the park, per the park rules. Bags for pet cleanup are also available onsite.
