“no dogs”
Review of City Beach

City Beach
Reviewed February 28, 2013

No dogs are allowed on any beaches in Southend in summer, but you will often find someone with a bull terrier or some other big dog on the beach that the fore shore officer is too frightened to move on. It is cleaned in the mornings after the night's debris of takeaways and beer cans has been cleared away but then quickly get dirtied again. Not the place for animal lovers or a family wanting a fun day out with the family pet.

Southend has spent a considerable amount of money and time improving this area. Children love the little fountains which come out of the pavement. It is lovely to see them enjoying simple pleasures like this. The whole promenade looks lovely and modern, as well as being clean. Just be careful crossing the road to the amusements on the other side because the road is 'shared space' with motor vehicles. Enjoyable place to visit on a sunny day - bracing in the winter.

Southend is a town in transition. The towns council don't seem to know if we are a Seaside town A business Centre or a University Campus town. We are famous for our Seasside , Golden Mile & Pleasure Pier so lets be proud of it!

This beach just ruined a sunny day out! Dirty muddy beach with loads of sharp and rocks in the water. One of nephews and I cut our feet whilst walking in the water. Not great for anybody to swim or spend the day!!!

I just dont like what has been done with City Beach and the 'shared space'. I find it rather tacky. There is always somewhere to grab some food and a drink though but that is not owing to the new City Beach itself.
