What we're about

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!

LI-DOG Barkin' Beach Cleanup and Doggie Meetup!

Needs a location

If your dog likes to swim and play with other dogs off-leash, and if you would like to spend a morning with your pup, other dog owners and the great folks of LI-DOG for some summer fun, then please join us at Mud Creek Off-Leash Dog Beach in East Patchogue on Saturday morning, July 16th!

At our Beach Pawty, we’ll let our furry friends frolic in the sand and swim in the calm waters of the Great South Bay! We’ll have plenty of tennis balls and Frisbees to add to the fun.

A clean-up of the Off-Leash Beach will start at 9:30 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 remember to bring plenty of water for you and your pup, your own towels, beach chairs and an umbrella!

PLEASE NOTE: Mud Creek has no amenities--no trash receptacles, no poop bag stations, no bathrooms and no water fountains. LI-DOG will have poop bags on hand, but please help us make the event a success by remembering to bring these items.

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, 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, which is a designated no-dog zone.

Parking is on the street. Please keep dogs on-leash until you get into the off-leash area.

RSVP here on Meetup, at LI-Dog on Facebook, or email us at [masked]

Volunteer Opportunities: If you love LI-DOG’s fun, dog-friendly events, become part of the fun by volunteering to help!

  • This event really needs four or five STRONG people to volunteer! We need help carrying stuff—umbrellas, water, a table, dog toys—from our cars onto the beach and back again.
  • You can also help at the LI-DOG table: sign people in, hand out tennis balls to the dogs, etc.

Email us at [masked] with Doggie Beach Pawty Help in the subject line if you can help make our Beach Pawty a success! Thank you in advance.

Weather-related changes: In the event of inclement weather or exceedingly hot conditions, please check our Meetup and Facebook group or our website by 9:30 a.m. that morning. If there are no announcements, the Beach Pawty is on!

We look forward to seeing you and your dogs Saturday morning, July 16th at our Beach Pawty!
