Surfside Beach Dog Park is a public dog park in the town of Surfside Beach, South Carolina. The dog park has a parking lot in front and there are on-street parking spaces in the nearby neighborhood.
The Surfside beach Dog Park is a designated off-leash area which is securely fenced with shoulder high chain-link fencing. The off-leash area is surfaced with both grass, sand, and dirt. The park can be dusty in hot weather and muddy when it has been raining.
On both sides of the dog park, there are rows of tall trees which offer some shade but not much. There are no trees or bushes inside the off-leash area itself. One part of the dog park has been sectioned off for small dogs. There are some pieces of dog agility equipment in the large dog area.
It is only permitted to enter the off-leash area with two dogs at a time and all pet owners using the facility must be over eighteen years of age. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
The minimum age for a dog to be able to enter the dog park is six months. All dogs that use the Surfside Beach Dog Park must have a current license tag and be wearing it while in the park as well as having their vaccinations, including rabies, up to date. License tags can be obtained at the Surfside Beach town hall.
Food and drink is prohibited in the off-leash area and so are dog treats. A water fountain is installed in a gravelled section which has a communal drinking bowl. There are park benches and picnic tables. Poop bags are supplied by the local authorities and owners are expected to deposit pet waste in the appropriate container to keep the park clean for other users.
The Surfside Beach Dog Park is closed once a week on a Wednesday between 10am and 12pm for cleaning.
