Bonita Springs has dog specific parks/beaches
Dogs may run free in a beautiful beach setting. This park does not have restrooms and instead has a portable toilet. Parking is free. Doggie shower stations provided by a private donor to rinse your dog before leaving the park. Please “Paws” and read the rules. No glass containers or alcohol allowed. This is an unsupervised facility. You are responsible for yourself, your dog and it’s behavior. The future of this wonderful facility depends upon your ability to self-monitor.
