Vero Beach

NOTE: We called the City's Parks and Recreation Department and asked if there were any dog-friendly beaches in this area. The answer was a very chilly, "No."

1. 4-H Best Friend's Off-Leash Dog Park

Located at the corner of 12th Street and 16th Avenue. Is a nice fenced-in, off leash, private facility. At one time we had info that this was "pay as you go" and activities were well-organized for those in attendance.

Reader Notes:

"This is the only off leash park I've found in Vero Beach and they have a charge of $250 per year! I decided to do a few drive bys and see what it was like. I drove by 3 times, twice during the weekend and once during the week. There was one dog there on the weekend and none during the week."

"I too investigated the $250 a year dog park and did not see anything that made it worth the investment. I now travel to Sebastian to their park. I would love to find people here in Vero who would be interested in promoting a safe, park for dogs. I wish the county would consider it."

Web Mistress Note: According to a news report of July 28, 2009, Dogs For Life, Inc. was awarded a $25,000 challenge grant from the Johnís Island Foundation for an expansion project at this dog park. Does anyone know how this is coming along?

NOTE: We can't visit every area on a regular basis, so if you have information about any dog parks or beaches, or any other animal recreation facilities, in the Vero Beach area, please contact FloridaPets.net.
