Happy Trails Dog Park @ G T Bray Park - This is a 3 acre location with both small and large dog areas. The

swim. Manatee Avenue - 1 mile west of 75th St., Bradenton
Robinson Preserve - At the western end of Palma Sola Bay, you and your leashed dog can access pet friendly...
Robinson Preserve...for a great workout and a little leashed doggie dipping on the north shore.
Desoto National Memorial Beach - This beach allows for dogs to swim "on leash". Several small beaches
are located within the park. Beware of De Soto Point Beach, located west of De Soto Point and northwest of the Visitor
Center. This area is exposed to the currents of the Manatee River and the waves of Tampa Bay. The Cove Beach located on
the south side of De Soto Point is shallow and sheltered. Small dogs would especially enjoy this beach. DeSoto National
Memorial is located at: 8300 De Soto Memorial Hwy, Bradenton at the Northern terminus of 75th street West. From I-75 exit
220 SR-64 to Manatee Ave.
