Dog lovers can still let their pets run off-leash in Miami Beach’s South Pointe Park.
City commissioners on Wednesday voted to extend the program through June with some changes.
The location of the off-leash area will be immediately is moving back to its original spot: near the Tobias Rehberger-designed obstinate lighthouse sculpture. The move brings dogs farther away from where kids play and the Smith & Wollensky Restaurant.
The park hours will also be changed to 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.
Commissioners also voted to ask the city’s Design Review Board to consider installing a prickly hedge of native vegetation to separate the new area from the rest of the park.
