Greenwich Point Park is nestled on the end of a peninsula that juts out into Long Island Sound. This park has puptastic coastal scenery and on any given day, you will see joggers, cyclists, beach combers, swimmers, and anglers. Since some folks around town don’t want to share this space with canine visitors, the city has come up with a compromise. Leashed dogs are welcome in the park from December 1 to March 31.
During the winter months, this park is the favorite
gathering spot for dogs and their humans. The beach known as Tods Point is the
most pupular area of the park for four legged guests. While dogs must be on
leash at all times in the rest of the park, they can run around sans leash
below the beach’s high tide water mark. This means your furry friend can splash
around in the waves to their heart’s content! Make sure your pup minds their
manners around the birds. Citations may be issued if your pup is harassing the
When your pup is covered from nose to tail with sand and
saltwater, clip their leash on and explore the walking trails. Meander through
woods, marshes, groves of trees, and gardens. Greenwich Point Park is actually
where the founders of Greenwich first arrived after fleeing the Massachusetts
Bay Colony. Be sure to check out Founder’s Rock so your pal can get a little
taste of history. Eagle Pond adds to the park’s beauty. Paws for a break on one
of the benches and just enjoy being in the park with your pup.
Please note the dog restrictions in this park are well enforced. Follow all rules so dog owners can maintain a positive reputation and furry friends can continue to enjoy this beautiful space. Don’t forget to carry clean up bags and pick up after your pooch. This park will definitely make your pup’s tail wag!
