    Weird rule

    I find it weird that they don't allow dogs in the water. They state that the reason for not allowing dogs in the water is because the water is used for drinking. So you allow people in the water and we all know people will do things in water that they shouldn't and they allow boats in the water that are definitely leaving who knows what in the water........go figure.

    Pretty fun place to take your pup

    Apparently they don't allow the dogs on the beach or in the water which is unfortunate in an area where it's so hot. But they have some little areas where you can take your dog where it's private. Even when its busy. I taught my pup how to swim there! So much fun!

    Great Place to walk Fido

    I brought my dog Juju out for a walk. The entrance fee is $10 and that is used to clean the park. Dogs are not allowed in the sand or water which I don’t mind. There are water fountains. I went during the week when there aren’t any people. My dog loved the walk.
