Nice walk on boardwalk out to dog beach. It was cool out so not very crowded. Nice to have a place to take your dog if they travel with you.

Great place to walk through the dunes and see the lighthouse. We went on a cold windy day, but still had a nice time!

The NS Dunes Park is beautiful. They just rebuild all of the walking decks and added a brand new fishing pier. I do see pet owners with there dog off the leash.

This is a very nice walk and beach to go to for a afternoon. The $10.00 helps keep this a well kept area. It gets you back to nature.

There is a parking lot at the dog park, but it requires a $5 admission. There is also a dog washing area, an entrance to the boardwalk, and beach and Inlet access.
