Dear Friends,

Davis Islands Dog Beach will be closed from starting June 1-Dec.1 by the authority of Tampa Parks and Recreation, for renovations. This includes the project to fix the adjacent boat launch and repair erosion caused by cruise liners at the dog beach. When completed, we will have a brand new park, including new sand, utilities, seating, fencing, and even an artificial reef! “Friends of Davis Islands Dog Parks” was not aware that the closure would be so long or when the project would occur, but after having conversations with the Planning Dept. of Parks and Recreation, realized the scope of their project, and are excited how it will, in the long term, benefit our dog beach. They have been gracious already and have replaced damaged fencing at the dry dog park as well.We understand that the dog beach closure is inconvenient, but when it reopens it will be safer, cleaner and better than ever, having an opportunity for a fresh start and hopefully keep it maintained and looking beautiful.The adjacent dry dog park will remain open and we will continue to make improvements to this park, including new signage for the kiosk and a pet memorial wall project.The City of Tampa Parks and Recreation has agreed to keep us informed with timing and details of the dog beach project here on out, so we thank you for your understanding and patience. Thank you all for your on going support.

Best Regards,

Friend of Davis Islands Dog ParksCarolyn Bigley/ Jenn Fadal

There are no tags

Did you know…. dogs and cats are prone to debilitating ailments as they age, such as kidney failure, heart disease, arthritis, dental disease, cancer, and cognitive dysfunction. This is why regular visits are so important!

Warning signs to look for in senior pets: Increased thirst and urination, repeated vomiting, bad breath, drooling, or changes in appetite.

Regular visits will keep your pet healthy and avoid the “Fragiles”!
