My friend and I took my two dogs to the off-leash beach. It was alright but could be a lot better. the train overpass leading to the off-leash area is NOT fenced off. Dogs can easily go up the stairs, across the overpass and out of the off-leash area. It wasn't that easy to find, there was no signs leading to it. When we did get in the right spot there was only a posted map with a star saying "your here" followed by a small green strip labeled "off leash area." It was right next to the un-fenced stairs and I didn't really feel safe letting them off leash. Other then that it was great. lots of clean-up bags around, and lots of drift wood to toss for the dogs. Only one couple with a dog was there, and they were as unsure if it was the off-leash area as we were.
I might take them back just because they loved the water so much but I would really like to see a gate on the stairs. And some directional signs would be a huge plus.
