The rest of the year, leashes are not required as long as your dog will not disturb other people, is within your control, stays within 30 feet of you, and returns to you when called.

Dogs must be on a leash at all times. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, dogs are not allowed on the beach between the hours of 9AM and 6PM (unless being used to aid a handicapped person).

Please note that the water is turned off at the dog park in the winter months.

Additional Tips

Protect those paws! On hot days, it’s best to take your dog for walks in the early morning and late evening and keep them in shaded grass as much as possible when outside. If it’s too hot for you to go barefoot on sand/asphalt, it’s too hot for your dog.

Visiting for the 4th of July? More pets go missing on Independence Day than any other day of the year. Make sure you’re aware of the timing of scheduled fireworks shows nearby and ensure your beach homes’ windows and doors are secured. Double check that your contact information is updated and readable on your pet’s collar.
