Owners socialize also. It's a good way to meet people who share a love of dogs.

The dog beach at the north end of Asbury Park is a gathering place for the dog community there.  They are allowed to bring their canine friends  once the lifeguards are gone.  It was obvious that it was a social event for the dogs and their owners.  The dogs ran around off leash and they had a great time. Some frolicked in the ocean. The owners made sure that everything was clean and safe. It also is one of the most beautiful times of day to visit any beach on the east coast.

The dog park group in Ocean Grove asked the CMA to approve a similar dog beach for OG north end.  CMA said that it is “not part of our mission.”

Ocean Grove is a very dog friendly beach town with a large dog population, but it has no dog beach.  

There is a dog beach on Eight Avenue in AP which is open to canine swimmers and their owners after 6 pm.  Otherwise the beach is reserved for surfers.

Why are surfers in OG  a special class in this town, while dog owners, a much larger group, are ignored.  Dog owners can’t get a dog park or a dog beach.

In OG, surfers and dog owners could all share the OG North End beach as they do in Asbury Park.

A dog beach is a very social place, enjoyed by humans and kids (also humans) . The one in A. Park is squeaky clean, so cleanliness is not an issue.      Write a letter to the Township Committee and the CMA.
