If you have a small dog, there is a separate dog park for them. However, if you want to go out to the beach BEWARE . The larger dogs are allowed to roam without leashes, and it's a pack mentality after that. Unless your smaller dog can fend for themselves against packs of larger dogs, you should find another way...

We took our dogs here several times during our stay. Well planned area for dogs to run free and enjoy the beach...although a limited space. Some days are more crowed than others, but we always had a great time

We watched a stingray swim up to and bump into a black lab who was very startled. It was great fun to watch the lab then go on super alert watch.

we took our golden to the park and beach. She had a great time swimming and meeting other dogs. We were able to wash her off at the dogwSh before she hopped back into the car. It was a fun time.

Our family chose Venice Beach as a vacation destination because of this park. We visited on a weekday morning. I can say that the park...both the grassy fenced off area near the parking area as well as the beach are well maintained and we did not meet any unfriendly dogs. There is a doggie shower available too. Unfortunately, our land-locked... More

We have been going to this park for 8+ years. It does have a nice place for your pet to play in the shade and a place for you and your pet to play in the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If all people were responsible pet owners, it would be paradise. Luck of the draw what dogs... More

This is a beach especially for people who have dogs. they can go in the ocean and run along the beach. They even have a open place to shower your dog when you are finished with the beach.

Parking can be limited, and it is quite a walk to the beach. 4/5 due to lack of shade/grass area for play. The beach however, is completely work it!

Paradise for dogs and humans! As others have mentioned, however, people do bring aggressive dogs here and let them off-leash... so keep an eye on your dog and keep to the sides of the beach if you have a small dog. You can usually find tennis balls around the park and beach.
