Why do dog owners love Melbourne?
From fishing and golf to snorkeling or simply sunning oneself, there are so many reasons to love Melbourne and its beaches - surf's always up in this Florida hot spot. Family-oriented Melbourne dog owners love feeding the giraffes at Brevard Zoo, and leap at the chance to brave the ropes course and go-karts at Andretti Thrill Park. (Prefer zip-lining? Treetop Trek Aerial Adventures is your spot.) Other nature-boasting Melbourne hotspots include the 121-mile-long Indian River and the Wickham Park recreation area. And the city's also host to annual festivals such as the Independent Filmmaker's Festival, Arts Festival, Aviation Day, and Oktoberfest.
What are some great dog-walking parks in Melbourne?
Melbourne dog boarding sitters love to take dogs for adventures to the many pet-friendly parks around the city. Some popular dog-friendly parks include the 10-acre Ballard Park on the Indian River Lagoon and the Eau Gallie River. Wickham Park features a walking path and nature trails, as well as an off-leash dog park; grassy Wells Park surrounds a good-sized pond and features a nice walking path; Bean Park is a quaint, waterfront park with walkways; Tallwood Park's 4.4 acres provide great nature trails; and Rossetter Park contains several beautiful old live oaks adorned with hanging moss. Or for something a little extra special, visit Erna Nixon Park, named after a Melbourne Village naturalist. This nature preserve is popular for its outdoor community events like the Moonlight Stroll that takes place after dark with live music and food vendors. Another highlight of the park is the 3,000-foot elevated boardwalk that winds through a natural Florida hammock, filled with native plant species and small animals.
