It’s no question that dog owners want what’s best for their little pups, and sometimes, getting your dog out and about so they can run around in some fresh air is exactly what your little pupper needs. Luckily for you and your best friend, Pensacola is home to many dog parks that present a safe, open, and friendly environment for your dog to stretch its legs and chase some squirrels as you yourself take a well-deserved break in the beautiful scenery of any dog park of your choosing.
Pensacola Dog Beach East and West
Yet if it’s a nice Florida summer day, the sun is shining high, and you’re willing to make the drive, Pensacola Dog Beach East and West are the best places to experience Pensacola while relaxing with your dog. The beautiful sandy beaches of the Pensacola are a signature locale of our great city and its only natural that your dog should get to experience it as well. The area allowed for the dogs is a bit small on both beaches, and you’re required to keep a leash on your dog at all times; however, the windy breeze of the ocean rushing through the fur of your dog as it runs across the shoreline makes the trip out to these dog parks an expedition your dog will love you for.

Ashton Brosnaham Dog Park
Now if you live a bit farther from downtown then Ashton Brosnaham Dog Park is a fantastic place to take your loyal companion without having to drive through downtown’s traffic. It offers a smaller play area in comparison to Bayview’s, but there are separate locations for small and large dogs with free water available for both. It’s a cozier dog park than Bayview as the main focus is the soccer field that resides right next to it; however, its locations is much more reasonable to deal with when you’re in the mood to just sit back and relax in the middle of nature.
