Reviews have stated that the beach and water contain a good amount of trash and dead sea life; however, the further you walk away from the entrance, the cleaner the area becomes. The debris is washed up with the tide. Please do your part to help keep the area clean for others by bringing doggy bags and removing any dog waste that may come from your doggo. Also dispose of the bags properly.
As one of the less populated parks with water that allows dogs in the big city of Brooklyn, the area is well-sought after, despite the trash reviews. With its smaller size, the park can get crowded, especially on weekends; however, it doesn't get as crowded as other parks like Central Park.
Other than an off-leash area for your canine friend to stretch their legs and cool off in the water, the park doesn't have added amenities. There isn't any shade; therefore, please plan accordingly for you and your pooch. According to the city ordinance, it is pertinent that your dog is vaccinated for rabies and has their registration. It is recommended to carry proof of both with you're in public areas and parks. When exiting the park, your pet must be on a leash no longer than 6-feet.
Keep in mind that although this is an off-leash park, your dog is your sole responsibility. Should they become out of hand or aggressive with others, you need to remove yourself and your pooch.
