If you are socially distancing from your friends and loved ones during the coronavirus pandemic, take comfort in the company of your furry friend. The Palm Beaches have a wide variety of pet-friendly outdoor activities to enjoy this summer. These activities can be a reminder to slow down and cherish your dog’s companionship a little extra in this stressful time.
Jupiter Dog Beach
Jupiter is home to one of the few dog-friendly beaches in Florida. Dogs are free to run, play, and swim along a 2.5-mile stretch of beach that spans from marker #25 at Marcinski Beach to marker #57 at Carlin Park.
If your furry friend enjoys swimming, they will love this off-leash dog park with Intracoastal access. The Jupiter park offers two separate fenced areas for large and small dogs to run around, too.
Jupiter’s newest dog park features plenty of amenities for dogs and their owners, including picnic tables, separate fenced areas for small and large dogs, shaded benches, sidewalk paths around the park and the lake, and a dog washing station.
Dreher Dog Park
Known as one of the most well-kept parks in Palm Beach County, Dreher Dog Park is popular amongst West Palm Beach locals. The park boasts an expansive field where dogs of all sizes can run freely, yet maintains a secluded, private atmosphere. There are benches to sit and watch your dog play and water fountains for dogs are provided, too.
Salty Dog Paddle
Paddle with your pooch alongside manatees, sea turtles, stingrays, and more! Salty Dog Paddle offers private stand up paddle board tours for dog moms and dads, and the nonprofit organization even has special dog-friendly boards and life jackets for pups of all sizes. Dog-friendly water sports are yet another reason to love the Palm Beaches.
Hang ten! Surfur Dogs offers surf lessons to give your pup a true taste of the South Florida lifestyle. Who knows who will have a bigger smile – you or your pooch?
Grandview Public Market
Four-legged friends are welcome at Grandview Public Market in West Palm Beach, and there are water bowls on the outdoor patio, or “Loading Dock,” for parched dogs. Just remember to keep your dog on a leash; the tantalizing smells of fresh food can excite Fido! The Warehouse District is the perfect place to experience one-of-a-kind art, live music, and a hearty meal alongside your dog.
Palm Beach Lake Trail
Grab a leash and stroll along the palm tree lined, mansion hugging Palm Beach Lake Trail; this may be the most scenic paved trail in all the Palm Beaches. A lengthy walk along this trail allows Fido to get some fresh air while you experience an intimate encounter with the Palm Beach lifestyle. You will pass the Sailfish Marina, the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum, and the expansive Rybovich Marina along the way.
