    Good Place for the Dogs and People for a meet and greet

    I have brought a number of dogs to this park over the past year ranging from 10 weeks to 2 years of age and it's always been a good experience. Like most parks, you hear about some dogs that are a bit aggressive, but that is a reflection of the owners rather than the animals. Pit Bulls tend to get the blame, because humans are more apprehensive about the breed. I find the nastiest dogs are the smaller terriers, but again, its ALL on the owners. Bring your your best friends to a place they can pal around with other dogs and have a good time.

    took my older boxer and small boston terrier and before I could get to the bench to set first the boston then my boxer were attacked by the same pit bull. the owner did not even apologize for the bad and aggressive dog. I left and wont be back. love my dogs too much to take them to get beaten up.

    I just got home from taking my dog here. The dog beach is back open! Apparently there was heavy rain and flooding that closed the beach temporarily, but now its back open. There's also another fenced in dog park on the same property that is not on the beach. There were probably ~20 dogs while we were there around 5-6PM. All the other dog owners were very friendly and responsible as well!

    The dog beach is closed. Dogs are still welcome on a leash and they have a nice dog park. Just disappointed we couldn't visit the dog beach.

    Nice little area

    When we found this beach, we thought it'd be like the dog beach in Fort De Soto. It is a lot smaller but nice to take your dog for a swim. It is very packed though do to it's small size. There is a nice walking trail to take your dogs on to let them dry off.

    I used to visit this park back when I was really little with our dogs... which was before there was even a dog park. This was back in 1995-1998 with our Collie part Chow. Lots of area to roam but we had to keep our dogs on a leash. We would play in the water and drink from the many fountains in the park until one day we walked over to the park restrooms and a printed out notice was posted over the water fountain. Apparently for the past two years the water was tested and harmful bacteria was present in the water supply and they advised that small children and animals don't go in the water or they might drink it accidentally. If you check the map this isn't the freshest of waters... it's near the mouth of Bayou Texar where a lot of wash off water is from local housing in either direction. So if you plan to go into the water keep on eye for posted notices or you might find out later then you wanted there was something in the water. Just a safety precaution, otherwise it should be safe enough.

    We drove down from KC to go to this beach and had a great time. Nice platforms to rinse the dogs off after playing in the sand. Then we would go to the dog park across the parking lot to play for a bit while they finished drying off. Top notch.

    Not safe for small dogs Lelanya More than one year ago.
    Not safe for small dogs

    I no longer take my dogs to this park, my dog was viciously attacked by a pit bull. Noone even attempted to helpme as I was on the ground between my dachshund and this pit. Not until I screamed for someone to please help me. There are always several large dogs and you cannever predict what can happen. I would LOVE it if they would partition it where it would separate the big dogs from the small ones. The park is nice but not safe, there will always be idiots that dont watch their dogs and thats two bad.

    Since dogs aren't allowed on regular beaches, it's nice to find someplace I can take my dog and he can swim and associate with other dogs off-leash. It's not the largest park but it is definitely the best one here in NW Florida.

    Awesome Dog Beach Vicky More than one year ago.
    Awesome Dog Beach

    Annie and Jasmine love going there and playing with all the other dogs!! The biggest problem that I see is the people who bring little kids and babies there. Rules state no kids under 15-16 cause kids and the parents don't watch what dog they run up to and they could get hurt and who would be at fault? Owner of the dog not the kids or parents. That's what a dog park/beach is for not people. But it's an awesome place and every dog seems to like being there and good dog parents watch their dogs and we all watch all the dogs should there be a problem and problem dog/dogs are put on leash or leave the park/beach.

    Great place to let your dog(s) enjoy the beach and play in the water. However, dog park rules are NOT enforced by the Pensacola Police Dept. (I called them about disruptive children in the park). Enter at your own risk. Aggressive dogs and dog owners are a threat.
