Let’s Take the Dog Out!
Summertime at the shore means one thing: OUTDOORS! In Monmouth County, there are a bunch of dog-friendly places for dogs and their people to enjoy together!
The off-leash dog park at Thompson Park in Lincroft is a great option for pups who like to run! There are “large dog” and “small dog” areas and water fountains when your pet needs a drink. Pros: great for dogs who like to play with others; open every day from 8am to dusk; easy waste disposal! Cons: not enough shade (so not good on a very hot day); can be a little muddy and buggy after a good rain 🙁
The bayside at Sandy Hook offers dogs their own day at the beach! Visit before 9am or after 5pm any day for maximum enjoyment. We’ve found that parking in the Chokecherry lot is safest and easiest for crossing to the sand! Pros: the surf and sand; the silly grin you’ll have watching your dog dodge waves; easy to join other dogs playing or go off on your own! Cons: the park is carry-in/carry-out, including pet waste; can be a little buggy 🙁
