Bay Front Park is great place to bring your leashed dog for a great shaded stroll around the marina and bayfront.

    Bayfront Park

    The park the previous reviewer talked about is not Bayfront Park. It's Bird Key Park. It's on a causeway between Sarasota and St. Armand's Key. Bayfront Park has LOTS of dog-friendly amenities. There's an open area to run, a walking path, beach access to Sarasota Bay, poop bags, dog water, and lots of furry friends to play with. A pet-friendly restaurant, "O'Leary's" that has live music nightly is located in the general area. And it's very close to downtown Sarasota. Sometimes when there is an event, it's hard to find parking. But you can always park on the east side of US 41 and walk to Bayfront Park.

    Dog Beach?

    There isn't any sand there. There are concrete block construction of the coastline area, this creates slimy, slippery moss, not as much trouble for the furries as it is for their humans. Wear scuba shoes. There are water fountains for dogs and humans as well as picnic tables and benches. Very pretty area. Getting in and out is a bit difficult.
