Miami-Dade Park and Recreation Department, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Alvarez and Miami-Dade County Commissioner Javier Souto dedicated a new dog park at Tropical Park, Saturday, July 25, at 11 a.m.
Miami-Dade Animal Services also participated by bringing dogs available for adoption. Three were adopted!
The two-acre dog park is divided into two areas, one for larger dogs weighing over 35 pounds and one for smaller dogs weighing less than 35 pounds. Both areas feature play equipment, such as a tire jump, window jump, king-of-the-hill ramp, dog walk and others. The dog park also features dog comfort stations with doggy drinking fountains and water sprays, pooper scoopers to keep the areas clean, and a shade structure that overlaps both sides.
