Picnic Island is perfect. So convenient and close! :-) Attention to the beach to keep it as pristine as possible will only continue to keep all of us returning for years and thanks!

Dogs are allowed to run free!! This is a very nice fenced in beach for dogs. Easy parking and walk to get into the area. Totally Free! We were there on a Saturday and there were around 20 dogs . Plenty big enough for all breeds! They also have a hose off area when you leave. There are a few picnic tables and benches to sit on but feel free to bring your own chairs, food and drinks.
The rest of the park is also beautiful but we went there mainly to let our dog run and play in the water! We most definitly will bring him back!

After driving by sort of abandoned industrial site, you will see a nice beach park. I have to admit that the park is more beautiful than the beach.

We are always looking for off-leash dog beaches and we loved this one. Large beach with a nice shallow entrance for the dogs. There is also a grassy area with picnic tables on the east side of the park and it was lots of garbage cans and bags and a fresh water hose to rinse your dog when you leave. The view is nice and this is located next to an industrial cargo area so you occasionally see ships coming in. We went here 4 times on our week vacation and our golden found dogs to play with every time. The people who come here are friendly and never got mad when my dog stole their shoes. There is a restroom on the far end of the parking lot and all this is free.

Visited this park on New Years eve during the day. Spent the day playing frisbee golf on a great course, hanging out with our dog on the dog beach (only encountered two other dogs) and fishing on the pier. Great park and not crowded at all. Had decent restroom facilities and plenty of parking. No entry fee.
