Best Dog-Friendly Parks in the Palm Beach Area

Dog Playing In Grass

The Greater West Palm Beach area is sprawling and there are no signs of the developments slowing down. Therefore, we have created a list of some of the best dog parks to take your favorite furry friend to throughout our city.

City Paws at Howard Park

Situated between Parker Avenue and Lake Avenue, this larger Howard Park houses a small little doggie haven named City Paws.

City Paws has two designated areas. One for large dogs and one for small dogs, which is comforting for those who worry about the size of their animals in regard to sociability.

The crowd consists of the same community of people who live nearby, so finding regular friends for your pup will be easy. You might even make some friends of your own while you’re there.

Canine friendly water fountains are located within each designated dog area and clean-up baggies are also available.

City Paws at Howard Park is located at 1412 Lake Ave, West Palm Beach, FL 33401 and is open Monday through Sunday 6:30 am – 8:30 pm

Dreher Dog Park

Dreher Dog Park is an expansive park for dogs, small and large, to run around freely and openly. The park goes back into the property for over a mile, so there is no worry about the safety of your animal in relation to the proximity of the road.

Dreher Park is one of the most well-kept parks in Palm Beach County and is a popular destination for families. However, you would never guess that anyone is ever there because the size of the park gives the perception of seclusion.

Dreher Dog Park is open from Sunrise to Sunset every day. Water fountains and baggies for pups are readily available, clean, and always fully stocked.

If you want your dog to feel like they have an endless field to run until their heart’s content, this is your ideal destination.

Dreher Park is located at 1100 Southern Blvd, West Palm Beach, FL 33405 and is open Monday through Sunday from 7:30 am to 8:00 pm. (Sunrise to Sunset)

Wellington Dog Park

Located within the luscious and peaceful Greenbriar park sits the Wellington Dog Park. As an off-leash dog park, this well-kept and woodsy park has many trees facilitating shade on a sunny day, as well as picnic tables and restrooms.

This park also has water fountains for your furry companion. For those who are further west in Palm Beach County, this is a great option for your dog to get their much-needed exercise.

Wellington Dog Park is located at 2965 Greenbriar Blvd, Wellington, FL 33414 and is open Monday through Sunday from 6:00 am to 7:30 pm.

Pooch Pines at Okeeheelee Park

Pooch Pines at Okeeheelee Park is another vast expansion of property for your dog to run freely and safely. With hills abound, Okeeheelee Park is the ideal setting for your dog to get out of their energy and get the exercise they need.

This park is specifically designed for off-leash recreation and they even have a wash station to clean up your dog after playtime.

With multiple gated areas for your dog to run wild, you can relax and enjoy the scenery knowing that your pup is safely enjoying their time.

Pooch Pines at Okeeheelee Park is also sectioned off according to size. Shade trees for pooped out pups are also peppered throughout all of the sections designated for dogs. The community of dog owners is remarkably responsible for making sure that everything goes smoothly among all of the dogs that frequent the park, making for an even more pleasant experience.
