Pensacola Beach Rules For The Four Footed

Pensacola Beach Dog Parks

Pensacola Beach offers two dog parks, so take your best friend for a walk on the beach or a swim in the Gulf!

The dog parks are open to dogs only and they must be on a leash.

Dog Park Hours:

Sunrise to Sunset except during turtle season (May 1-Oct. 31) when open 7 am to Sunset.

The west end park is located at Parking Lot 21.5, the first parking lot past the last condos on the Gulf.

The east end park, Parking Lot 28.5, the first parking lot past Portofino. Numbers 21 E (west) and 28 B (east) on our reference map.

All dogs are required to be on a leash, and signs will be posted to designate dog-friendly areas.

Doggie bags, disposable bins and handy wipes will be available at both locations.
