    #5 Gerritsen Beach


    If you need something different than a dog park and your pup loves to swim, you should visit the dog-friendly beach on Gerritsen Avenue in Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn. The beach is on a local secret bay and there are no rules here! But there aren't any bathrooms here either, so keep that in mind. Bring water and waste bags with you to clean up after your pooch. The beach is free to use, and there's plenty of parking nearby. The beach is not easy to find, so you'll want to use the specific address: 3078 Gerritsen Ave. The water is pretty clean and there is a lot of beach space for running and playing fetch off-leash!
