Howarth Dog Park spans 28 acres of beautiful beach and mountain views, providing the ultimate summer bliss for both owners and their pets. It is a great place to relax and make sure Fido gets all the exercise he needs during the day.
One of the many benefits of this dog park is ensuring visitors have access to restrooms, as well as plenty of room for dogs to run around and play with each other. The beach area is the only place where dogs are allowed off-leash, and that is situated north of the pedestrian bridge that crosses the railroad tracks.
Right at the beginning of the off-leash area, there are nearby train tracks so you should make sure that your dog is under complete voice control, as the train could frighten him. There are also some trails for leashed dogs. Although the beginning of the off-leash area is a bit rocky and potentially a little rough on your dog’s paws, the sandy beach fully compensates for this small downside.
The park offers plenty of parking space, easy access, long walks via trails, a playground, picnic area complete with tables and BBQ grills, lots of logs for seats and plenty of room for Frisbee tosses – unless the tide is in. Apart from this, visitors can also enjoy tennis courts, fishing and swimming in the area.
Howarth Dog Park provides owners with poop bags to clean up after their pets and dispose of the waste in garbage cans. Owners should be advised that most of the park and beach areas require dogs to be on a leash, and there are also fines for violations.
If you’re searching for a dog park where Fido can play and run in sandy beaches while you enjoy the beautiful scenery and various amenities provided, Howarth Dog Park is a definitely worth your visit.
