My lab, Chocco, making friends.


Along Lakeshore Drive in Mandeville, LA there is a nice park on the shore of Lake Pontchartrain. The park covers over a mile of lake frontage, and has paved walking paths, as well as several large grass play areas. Additionally there are park benches, a gazebo, swing sets and jungle gyms for kids as well as many shady spots under large beautiful oak trees. There is an entrance to the harbor at one end of the park and several restaurants and pubs across the street. The park is a very popular place for people to play with their dogs or take them for walks. There are also doggie poop bag dispensers at a few places in the park. The park is free, open all hours, and there is ample parking along on the park side of the street which is also free.

    Dog Walk - Not Dog Park

    While the Mandeville Lakefront is a great place to walk your dog, it is very much NOT a dog park. It is a dog friendly area, plenty of grass and poop bags to clean up after your pup, but it is not an off leash area in any way and it almost always very busy with non-dog people.

    This location is not classified as a "Dog Park." However, it is a long and scenic stretch along the lake that is a wonderful place to take your dog for a walk. It is not a place to take your dog off the leash to run around in the grass, as there are many children and moms with strollers also. Having said that, I take my labrador there several times a week and he LOVES it! There are steps that lead into the water where I will take him off the leash and let him go for a swim and fetch sticks. This is a very popular place for families, pet owners, and runners. Plenty of parking, restaurants, scenery of sailboats, doggie bags for cleanup. Great spot.

    Clean and Dog Freindly

    Whe had a great time; It felt like an orginized dog party. Lots of great dogs and clean beach front. The pub - restaurant let us eat on the upper level with our dog.

    No designated dog area

    This is a very scenic park along the lake, but there is not a designated dog area, and not a fenced in play area. Was nice for a long walk.
