This Meetup group is operated by Friends of Long Island Dog Parks (June 18, 2020), which does business as the Long Island Dog Owners Group (LI-DOG). Our goal is to socialize with other dog owners and organize fun things to do with our dogs including dog-friendly events and enjoying Long Island's beautiful dog-friendly parks and beaches!
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we must strictly limit this Meetup to 25 people. Since we know social distancing will be difficult at this event - in accordance with NYS protocol - Masks Are Required. Attendees also will be required to sign an agreement confirming neither they nor anyone in their family has been diagnosed with COVID or experienced symptoms in the past 30 days. Thank you for your understanding!
Does your dog like to swim? Does your dog like to socialize? Would you like to spend a morning with your pup, other dog owners and the great folks of LI-DOG for some OFF-LEASH summer fun?
Then please join us at Mud Creek Off-Leash Beach in East Patchogue on Saturday, July 18th for a couple of hours, letting our furry friends frolic in the sand and surf of the Great South Bay! There’ll be plenty of exercise to be had running along the coastline and in the water as Mud Creek is an off-leash dog beach.
A clean-up of the Mud Creek Off-Leash Beach will start at 8:30 a.m., so if you and your fur baby would like a little extra time in the sun, please join us in getting the area ready for our meetup!
PLEASE NOTE: Mud Creek has no amenities and is considered “carry-in, carry-out” (i.e. no trash receptacles, no poop bag stations, no bathrooms and no water fountains). LI-DOG will have disposable masks, hand sanitizer and poop bags on hand, but please help us make the event a success by remembering to bring these items. Please also remember to bring water for you and your pup and your own towel and beach chairs!
Mud Creek is a natural borders dog park, which means it is not fenced on most sides. For everyone’s safety, please only bring dogs that are well-socialized—used to playing with other dogs off-leash—and that will reliably come when called. Please: NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES.
To access the dog beach, please use the double-gate entry, walk along the fence, then turn right onto the beach as soon as the fence ends. Please keep off-leash dogs out of the area in front of the fence.
Parking is on the street. Please keep dogs on-leash until you get into the off-leash area.
We hope to see you and your dogs on Saturday, July 18th at the beach!
In the event of inclement weather, exceedingly hot conditions, or any COVID-related changes, please check back here on Meetup or on our Facebook group as we will post any changes by 9 AM that morning.
