It's self-regulated which means that if your dog misbehaves or is aggressive, don't be surprised if one of the regulars ask you to quietly leave and return on a day when Fido is feeling better. Dogs mingle and make themselves at home where ever they feel like. It's such a... More

I don't own a dog but I think this place is awesome. I really think that dogs deserve their own outdoor space and be able to romp and play and bathe in the beach and this place provides them just that. As my friend and I went inside the park (lots of fences and gates for safety), I could see... More

An open area of beach, lots of dogs, laid back owners. Great dog interaction. An area is provided to wash the salt and sand off your pooch. Excellent.

I Love this park & so do 2 of my dogs. Friendly people & pets, very clean for the amount of visitors. Even a dog rinse station so you don't bring to beach home! Always a great time!

Took my two doodles to the beach at this park and they loved it. All the other dogs well behaved. There is some pooh laying around but not too bad. If you have sweet pups, definitely take them here.

My canine roommate (Beau) and I visit the dog beach early every Sunday morning. I love the tidal motion, sounds and shells. Beau loves it all. Racing down the beach in and out of waves as well as all the good smells.
