Dog Walking & Dog Run!

Visitors on a nature hike

Dog owners are welcome to bring their four-legged friends to the Sands Point Preserve, provided the dogs are kept on a leash at all times. This is a strictly enforced law in the Village of Sands Point, and there are no exceptions as the safety and well-being of all visitors, including adults, children, and animals, are of paramount importance. Dogs are not permitted on the beach at any time. We ask for your cooperation in this matter, so the Preserve can remain a safe and enjoyable site for all visitors and their pets.

The Dog Run – also known as Charlie’s Run –¬†offers two large spaces for pups to romp and socialize – one area is designated for small dogs (less than 25 pounds), and the other is accessible for all dogs. Dogs must be accompanied by their owners at all times.
