The park and beach have a space to launch your kayak and a roped off swimming area where lifeguards are on duty seasonally. You will also find a lovely deck that has picnic tables for eating a yummy lunch or snack and benches for sitting to enjoy the bay views.
You will also find public restrooms and a small shower area as well, to use after swimming in the bay or after a full day of kayaking. People also love to come to this beach for bird watching and collecting shells! You can enjoy views of the marina, sand dunes, and there is a playground for the kids to play on.
People also frequent this beach and park with their dogs for long walks along the water. You should keep your dog on a leash and make sure they are friendly and non-aggressive to other people and dogs. Although the beach is small, it is generally not crowded, making it a quiet spot for your dog to walk along the beach and splash around in the water a bit.
Bring your own poop bags to clean up after your dog so you can keep the beach clean and sanitary for other beachgoers. There are plenty of trashcans to dispose of the bags before you leave the beach and head home.
Overall, Gold Star is a great beach that your dog will enjoy. With your basic beach necessities like a restroom, picnic area, and an area for the kids to play taken care of, you can go out and enjoy the day with your family and furry friend at this bayside hot-spot!
