our Dog Beach featured on streaming video: It's
Park's Dog Beach...
one of a kind creation located at the Pools, foot of
the path leading down from the Tennis House - off 9th
Street. While it looks like sand in the photos, in reality
it's really a cement apron. Rules are posted: off-leash
ONLY rules apply! Absolutely no humans allowed
to swim under any circumstances! As for Cabana
Rentals.... Hair Nets... Towel Concessions...
Hours for Dog Beach are the same as hours for general
offleash. No swimming for dogs otherwise.
Alternative to Dog Beach?
Dog paddling is allowed in Prospect Park's Lake from the off-leash meadow known as the Peninsula during off-leash hours ONLY. Note - Peninsula wooded areas are NEVER off-leash!
Be considerate of others! Monitor your dog especially if there's a great disparity of sizes in the water. Dogs are NEVER, EVER allowed offleash in the water after off-leash hours. We know it's tempting, especially on weekends, but there are far too many passersby & children - many whom are afraid of dogs.
