Best Friend Dog Park is a great spot to bring your puppies and enjoy the park. Great day with family.

My dog wouldn't even go in the gate. There were all kinds of little yapping dogs that were irritating. The dirt and woodchip ground was disgusting.

This hidden treasure is just what each dog and dog owner dream of. A place where your dog can run leash free, play with other dogs and chase waves. People are very responsible about watching their dogs which is an added plus. Keep in mind the "pick up" rule applies.

If you're in HB or anywhere close, and you've got a dog, try dog beach! It's free and fun! Parking can be tough and requires parking in a meter (I think they all take debit and credit cards). Dogs run free, so be prepared to have strange dogs jump on your and sniff your doggie's butt, but that's what dogs... More

Even if you have no dog, you can enjoy watching others. Every May there is a Beaglefest here.....it's dog-ear heaven.

I like this park because it is easy to get to, and has a large parking lot. I usually go when it isn’t very crowded and take my three big dogs and just walk around the perimeter. It has wood chips instead of grass, so make sure to wear closed toe shoes. They frequently don’t have poop bags at their... More

I took my son here while he was visiting from out of town. Had to bring his dog along for the trip. I was amazed at just how well ALL the dogs seem to get along with each other. Fun to watch some dogs confront the ocean waves for the first time. Wore out my son's dog. My only complaint... More

A nice set up but too many bullying dogs here. I have tried to take each dog we had here, ONCE. Though not of them were aggressive, they all got attacked. They have a small dog section. If you are not sure, try standing outside the fence with your dog. If other dogs come over barking, growling, and biting the... More
