I wish Fairfield would change its rules and allow dogs on the beach after Labor Day and until May 1. They get such enjoyment and other beaches such as East Hampton allow them during the summer after 6pm. Even 9/15 would be better than 10/1.

I walked up from Jennings beach towards Penfield and had the dog warden start shouting at me 150ft down the beach to put my dog on the lead. I walk the beach everyday and 2 days before the beach shuts for the summer the warden is on the beach yelling at everybody. The guy is ignorant, obnoxious and has no manners and should certainly not be in a job dealing with the public. I did not know that dogs should be on a leash on that part of the beach and where are the signs ???. I do not mind playing by the rules but I need to know what they are.

I love this beach. I thought the cut-off was March 31 and we are going through withdrawal. Which is it in 2012? Are there any beaches that are still open to dogs in Fairfield?
Perfect for dog running and beach walking
- PeterMore than a year agoNot leash-free (please obey the rules!)
Access to Penfield Beach is only from October 1st through March 31st; not "Labor Day to April 30th." Moreover, dogs are required to be leashed above the mean/average water mark.

took our puppy to the beach on 9/9/11. According to the website you can take your dog to Penfield Beach after Labor Day, which was 9/5. We were thrown off the beach and threatened with a $90 fine by an 'officer', claiming, by yelling across the entire beach that we were in violation, Not only did he not have the courtesy to come to talk to us privately about the situation, but he had no clue what the website said, nor apparently when Labor Day is. He was ignorant, obnoxious, and arrogant. DO NOT TAKE YOUR MONEY TO SPEND IN FAIRFIELD!!!!

Penfield and Jennings beach are great for letting the dogs swim in the waves and meet other dogs. Just be sure your dog is "dog friendly" many people are there.
