I have two high-energy dogs with strong tracking/hunting instincts and they that love to explore.
Water Play! Free Park!L.E Ray Dog Park
I stopped here in the Spring to give my two girls a break after a long travel day. I was there for over an hour and a half because one of them was having so much fun she didn’t want to leave. They love running and playing in the water and just exhausted themselves. I assumed they would get muddy and was planning to bathe them at the motel. It was worth the trouble!
Nice Walking Area!Northside Park
I spent the week in OC and took my two girls for a walk around the park every day. We went out in the Boardwalk and enjoyed seeing people crabbing and fishing.
Great Lake Fun! Free park!Bow Wow Beach
Since both of my dogs enjoy the water, the BringFido lake description peaked my interest so on my trip to Maryland, I traveled a little out of my way to give them an hour break there. I took water to rinse them off but didn’t need it. The beach sand was not muddy and the lake water fairly clear so they may have come out cleaner than when they went in! I plan to stop there for a break again on my next trip.
Small ParkOcean City Dog Playground
The park is near the water tower. The given address takes you to the apartments at the west end of the street. After a quick exploration of the grounds, my two girls were ready to leave. If your dog likes playing with strangers or chasing a ball, this may be a good stop for you. Mine love to explore and search so this was not a good park for them.
