By Land or by Sea - There are plenty of locations for you
and yours to enjoy a frolicking time!
Here is a list of pet friendly places. Some require leashes while others don't.
Bird Key Park - between Lido Key and the Ringling Bridge has plenty of room for (on-leash) dogs to walk and swim
in Sarasota Bay. Take the Ringling Causeway to Bird Key. At the first traffic light (just before the bridge) thereíll
be parking on the left side. This park continues under the bridge and around the other side with a protected grassy area
and beach. In summer months, it is here you'll see dolphins and manatees.
Sarasotaís Bay Front Park - "Season of Sculpture" With shaded walkways offer parking and access to
Centennial Park where expansive green space is available to dogs on leashes. Thereís even a friendly Tiki bar called
O'Leary's nearby. It is here that puppies and owners can enjoy a beautiful sunset, meet new friends and go off leash to
catch a Frisbee from the restaurantís sandy shore.
Directions: Cross the Ringling Bridge and go right on (US 41) Tamiami Trail. Take a right turn at the
second traffic light into Centennial Park.
Venice - There's a great "BEACH PARK" specifically designed for (off-leash) dogs and their owners.
YES, this is where you can swim and sun TOGETHER! Go to
Brohard Paw Park for details.
