The borough of Belmar is a beautiful and charming seaside community with a beach on one side and lakes and rivers on the other. The city offers an exciting time for both residents and visitors throughout the year. Families with dogs will find plenty to do and see in the community with their beloved pooches, from hiking to checking out the beaches or even fishing! 

Belmar was once home to the Lenni Lenape First Nations people. Over time, their land found its way into the hands of settlers. The original site names have been lost over time, and for a long time, there was little more than a handful of farms in the area. Native Americans were recorded to remain in small encampments in the area as late as 1887. 

Maclearie Park is a local favorite on the Shark River side of this town. It is just minutes away from the Belmar Marina. This park is the pawfect place to bring your pup for a walk or the whole family for a weekend picnic!  There is plenty of room to throw around a tennis ball or go for a run with your dog.

There are three animal hospitals within a ten-minute drive from Belmar.

    #3 Main Street/5th Avenue

    24

    This area will lead you right to the viewpoints of the Shark River. In the late 1800s, it was said that a large shark washed upstream into the bay and died. That, mixed with the abundance of fossilized shark teeth found on the shoreline, gave the river its notorious name. Right off of Main Street, Doughboys Pizza is a top-rated restaurant with wood-fired pizzas and brick oven pizzas to choose from! There are also other Italian style dishes if you aren't in the mood for a pizza. You can even order some pizzas by the slice! Your pup can sit with you at one of their six outdoor tables.

    #5 Northeast (Northeast Asbury Park)

    0
    The northeastern part of Asbury Park, just ten minutes from Belmar, is home to the 8th Avenue Dog Beach! This beach is well worth the drive from October 1st through May 15th, when pups are allowed to stroll the boardwalk and beaches with their humans. When bringing your pup out on the town, you will need to follow some basic rules like keeping proof of licensing and vaccination with you and making sure your dog does not exhibit any aggressive behavior while outdoors. Keeping your dog with you and within your verbal control is also a must in this area.
