Although the sign says “Manatee Island Dog Park”, let me assure you Manatee Island is more than a dog park and no you can not let your dog run free on this island; but you can let yourself run free!
I have visited this park twice, once with my 2-year-old daughter and a friend and the other time on a date with Steve. It’s located at 361 N Beach Street, Daytona Beach, FL
It makes for a nice stroll, jog or stroller ride.
An old house, that was closed both times I visted, sits near the road and the parks main entrance. A nice wood boardwalk connects the mainland to Mantee Island.
Once on the island I suggest you walk to your right. An outdoor amphitheater, 180 degree river views, a boat dock and Florida wildlife greet you as you circle this small island.
You’ll continue on until you come to the back side of the actual fenced in dog park and then a nice children’s playground and fitness station area.
So depending on your mood and company, pick one of the four.
Take your dog to the dog park,
your kid to the kid park,
get your fitness on
or continue your walk past the bathrooms, off the island and on to your next adventure.
