I loved taking my dog to this park! They have a smaller area closed off before the beach as well as a huge area of beach to take your dog out to the beach! Meeko loved playing in the sand but didn't seem too sure about going into the water! I thought it was nice that they had an area... More

This is a place you don't want to miss if you either like to be with dogs or have dogs. They can play freely on the beach. They can either play in the water or along the sand with other dogs. There is also two fenced in areas to let you dogs play freely. One for small dogs and one... More

We have 3 small dogs. We were impressed with the layout, the watering stations, the plentiful doo-doo bags, and the hose down area as you leave. We do not like the fact that people let their BIG dogs run free without any supervision. In my opinion, it's a dog fight waiting to happen. We never let our dogs off-leash that... More

I take my dog here a few times a week. It is crowded during the season. If you get there early ...before 10 am....you can beat the rush. My dog plays while I hunt for shark teeth. It's a great time!

The park is very clean and has a lot of shade. It is usually not super busy, which is nice. The beach is beautiful and it's so fun to watch the dogs interact and play in the water.

Such a treat to be able to bring our faithful companion to run free on the beach. The dogs have such a ball… great innovation. Poop bags supplied also a spray fountain for hosing off Fido.. Just past Sharky's restaurant..

We've gone every day for two weeks and we love this dog beach. Our NS Duck Toller is a swimmer, not a pack runner and she loves it. The big dogs don't bother her and even if they swim out after her for her Frisbee, there's never an argument to get it returned. Most of the dogs and their owners... More

Paw Park is the only Venice beach open to dogs. The double-gated, fenced park on Harbor Drive has fresh water for dogs to drink and a hose for washing off before getting back in the car. There are several dispensers with bags so owners can clean up after their dogs. There is about a 400 yard walk into the beach... More

It's fun to watch the dogs enjoy the beach and swim, but for those who do not appreciate dogs, just step around it. Yes, I said just step around it.
