Carolyn Smith, Realtor – Dog Friendly Brevard County, FL: Dog Parks in Brevard County, Florida
I am an animal lover, and although my family does not currently have a dog, I have many clients, friends, and family members with dogs. So I know how much dog owners love to bring their dogs everywhere with them, whenever possible. I get tons of questions everyday about dog friendly restaurants in Brevard County, dog friendly beaches in Brevard County, and dog friendly parks in Brevard County. Since I have already covered dog friendly restaurants here, and dog friendly beaches here, I am going move onto dog parks in Brevard County, Florida. Brevard County actually has a lot of dog parks, spread from the north end of the county to the south end of the county. Hopefully there is a park that is convenient for you and your dog!
Please note that other than the parks listed below, dogs (except service animals) are not permitted in Brevard County parks.

Please be a responsible dog owner. Remember, admission to all dog parks requires a record of current vaccinations. All dogs must wear a current Brevard County license tag. Visitors from outside Brevard County must have the equivalent license tag from the governing authority of their place of residence (city, county, state), along with current license/tag and shot record.
Please remember to leave aggressive dogs at home, keep your dog under control at all times, and pick up after your dog. If your dog is having a grouchy day (it’s okay, we all do sometimes), then bring your dog home, no need to force the dog park if your dog isn’t loving it.
