Questions & Answers

Question: We are going to be at the dog beach in September. I was wondering if a pop beach shelter for 3-4 people is permissible.

Answer: Yes, a sunshade or small tent is allowed. We recommend you don't place it close to the water or directly in front of your fellow beach goers though.

Question: Hi I am going to the ocean beach dog beach for the first time. Can you give me the address please? Also what time does the beach and parking open? I wanted to get there earlier to avoid crowds.

Answer: Dog Beach does not have a physical address. You may use the map provided (above). The parking lot is open 24 hours a day.

Question: How far does the off leash area extend up the San Diego river? I have noticed some signs saying that part of the SD river bed is in the
process of restoration. Am I allowed to have my dog off leash anywhere within the boundaries of the San Diego river? Essentially anywhere north of the San Diego Bike way?

Answer: There are signs posted  on the trails and on the side of the river to help guide you. The sign by the river is white and is in the sand near where the dunes start. Please observe the boundaries which are indicated by the signs and be respectful of all wildlife.
