Miami Lakes, FL -Miami Lakes canines and their owners have been eagerly wagging their tails awaiting the opening of the planned Miami Lakes off-leash dog recreation area. The Town of Miami Lakes is pleased to announce the grand opening of K-9 Cove will be held on Saturday, October 21st from 10-11am.
In anticipation of the opening, the Town sponsored a contest to name the new recreation area. While there were several creative submissions, “K-9 Cove” submitted Miami Lakes resident Damian Hernandez was selected as the winner by the Friends of the Dog Recreation Area Group.
K-9 Cove is located at 14048 Palmetto Frontage Rd (NW 77 CT) and features both a passive recreational area and two separate fenced areas for smaller and larger dogs. The area will include benches, drinking fountains for dogs, and a joint open-air shelter for pet owners. In addition, the site incorporates a portion of the proposed 10’ wide bike trail along the south side of Palmetto Frontage Road.
Several of the Town’s animal care professionals will also be in attendance to distribute materials and free giveaways including Dog House Miami and the Miami Lakes Veterinary Clinic.
