The best dog park in south Florida!

Markham park has plenty of space for the furry family members too! It’s a huge facility, about three acres of grass, paths, playthings and shelters. There’s water available on site. Some people also refer to this as the Weston dog park, since it’s right on the northeast corner of Weston.

The fee is $5 per day or you can purchase an annual pass for $25. Passholders can have up to three dogs. Owners are required to provide proof of rabies vaccination at the time of purchase. Barkham Park is open daily from 8am except for Tuesdays when the dog park opens at 10am (open later in the morning due to maintenance) and it remains open until the whole park closes.

Call the Markham Park office at 954-357-8868 for more info.

If you’re looking for another great dog park a bit further north, try Pooch Pines at Okeeheelee Park in West Palm Beach! They’ve also got a great facilities there. Quiet Waters Park also has Woofing Waters Dog Park for dog owners looking for a place to cool their four legged friends down and while they play in the park’s water features during the hot summer months.

Love it

During my first visit, I loved the place. There are trails to walk with your dogs, and the dog park is big, clean, and has plenty of seating and shaded areas.

aggressive dog

The park is beautiful, but aggressive dogs enter the large dog area and their owners don't care. There should be someone in charge of the park who watches over this and has the authority to take those dogs out. I had to go with my dog because they wanted to hurt her between three dogs. And then another person left with their dogs due to the same situation.
Too bad because it's a beautiful place where dogs can run and play with each other... but owners with aggressive dogs win the territory.

I go to the dog park almost everyday my dog Daisy loves it. By far the best park around. Everyone looks out for each other’s dog as if they were there own. We both made many friends at the park. Great place to socialize for dogs and there owners.

Fur Real Fun

My dog Chauncey and I LOVE this park. He gets to run around and have a blast. I've had overall positive experiences here. Everyone is pretty friendly/respectable and all the dogs seem to be well behaved. There are waste bags and trash bins throughout the park which is nice. There are also cool little doggy water fountains available. We bought an annual pass, and it's the best $25 bucks I've ever spent.
