If you are traveling with pets other than dogs, we first recommend directly contacting the place you plan to go. The ThumbCoast has over 75 public parks! These parks typically allow dogs on a 6′ leash and there will be posted rules to review upon arrival or use the contact link listed for on each park for additional information.
