Riviera Oaks Dog Park
- StephenJun. 18, 2018DIRTY AND DANGEROUS
People don't pick up their dogs waste. Homeless people obviously live under a nearby shelter (why).

I have been bringing my dogs to this park for 5 years now, and I still love it. There are actually 3 options here for your dogs. They have your typical big run/small run areas - but also a pavilion area that is basically a free for all. I have a Big and small dog, so I tend to use the big dog area the most, but like every dog park there are bullies once in a while, so it’s nice that they have the quieter pavilion area to retreat to.
With that said - this is a dog park, and when in a pack environment, dogs will behave like dogs. Needless to say I’ve witness a few unruly animals try to take over, but the situations are more often than not handled immediately and appropriately by the owners. If once in a blue moon you get those owners who just might not know how to properly correct their dogs, just take them to the pavilion area.
Overall this park is a wonderful place with wonderful people and dogs. Please don’t let bad reviews deter you from seeing for yourself.

We stopped on the long drive from NJ to the Florida Keys. The park is beautiful. Our Great Dane loved stretching her legs here.
- IsabellaMore than a year agomy pups ???? this dog park!!
We are going to the park today and our pups can't wait to see new pups! We've been there before in October 2014, and it has room to play, fresh drinking water, and puppies that like to play!
- CIBMore than a year agoPark is dirty and dangerous
This park is a health risk to humans and pets alike.There are homeless persons living in the woods around the park and they throw their trash everywhere and will back up to trees and relieve themselves, #2, against the trees. Then wipe their hands on the trees! It is a helth hazard for animals and people. The mess attracts large numbers of racoons that have potential to carry rabies. There is also rusty steel scrape in the woods that is dangerous to everyone.
I tried to take my small dog for a walk around the pond last summer and met up with two different individulals with large dogs, both of which wher off of leads. I was reassured by the owners of those large dogs that "my dog won't hurt your little dog". Why was I supposed to trust them? I carried my dog. Also the one person was letting their retriever jump and swim in the pond chasing the water birds. Pittiful!
I will not take my dog to this park and we live within walking distance.
- KelsiMore than a year agoA decent spot!
This park is in a nice shaded area! Visited for the first time and found that it would be a good place for dogs that entertain themselves. Many owners didn't allow their dogs to be playful, but maybe that was just this particular experience. I was warned that fleas are commonly found in the in the long grass which is a good portion of the park. Also, the pond next to the fenced in area has snakes and alligators so don't bring your dogs there to swim! Not the best place, but not the worst.

Not my favorite park but still a decent park to visit to change things up. Very shaded park, but a lot of dirt. My dog always leaves filthy.
- SueMore than a year agoAggressive dog
Went to try out this park with my chihuahua and black lab. It was absolutely beautiful. However, when I went to enter the big dog park I was met by a very aggressive dog snarling and baring its teeth. Not on your life would I enter. The owner was sitting rather far away and paying no attention. We left as it also started snarling and trying to get through the little dog fence to go after the little dogs. Does anyone watch the park or settle issues like this?

This great dog park is the best in the area with lots of shade, water stations, and benches for the 2 legged folks. This park was reported closed and it did temporarily, but it is now permanently open and operated by Volusia County and the Friends of Riviera Oaks Park. WELCOME BACK EVERYONE!

One of nicest, largest and most shaded dog parks in eastern Volusia. Beautiful dog parks, and scenic trails around the perimeter, along with a large pond.

I took my puppy (Beagle) to all the dog parks in the area - Deland, New Smyrna Beach, Palm Coast and others and found the one in Holly Hill the nicest. Good space for a dog - big or small to run, chase squirrels, and interact with other dogs!
We need to give the group working to keep the park all our support.
- GiselaMore than a year agoLove it
Whenever we visit this area we take our dogs there, just to let them walk around free. They love it!
