We started the concept of The Friends Of The Vero Beach Dog Exercise Area, Inc. over 15 years ago and our mission and goal has always stayed the same: provide a safe park for people & off leash dogs. We are proud that the Vero Beach City Council has the same vision and supports our efforts in this endeavor. Park amenities are self-funded by the friends of Vero Beach Dog Park – you can help by purchasing a memorial paver brick or see the menu for the donations page. No taxpayer funds purchase our improvements and amenities. Even the fencing was paid through donations.
New park improvements and events: Water! Electric! Large and Small/Quiet dog areas are completely fenced with a secured entry called a “sallyport” so your dog won’t escape while entering the park.
Memorial Brick Paver program: These bricks are engraved by local artisans with your personalized message or memory of a favorite pet or person. The goal is to eventually create a memorial walk with engraved pavers for visitors to remember and reflect on their time together.
