Myrtle Beach Area Pet Friendly Dog Parks
Talk about being pet friendly! There are 4 well maintained dog parks in the Myrtle Beach area for dogs of all sizes. They are fenced and safe to let your dog off leash and socialize with other dogs. Water is available as well as bags for clean up. They are pretty evenly spread out along the Grand Strand so a location will be near your resort, but you will need to drive to get there. You are expected to have your dog under control and under your supervision at all times, and all the parks are well patrolled. If you want to let your dog enjoy good exercise by retrieving a ball or frisby or play with other dogs, the dog parks are the perfect place to visit. Benches are available for owners to relax and watch their dog have fun!
There are also places in Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas that are great places to walk with your dog. Some are paved walkways and others, such as the state parks, have great nature trails to walk.
Whatever your preference - we've got it! Look at the list below and choose the right one for you.
YMCA-Grande Dunes Area
The Grande Dunes area of Myrtle Beach is still undeveloped, but has a nice sidewalk and a tree lined walkway perfect for a stroll with your dog. If you walk to the Marina, you can enjoy a view of the Intercoastal Waterway.
YMCA Dog Park
The YMCA Dog Park is located just north of the intersection of Grissom and Hwy 17 Bypass in Myrtle Beach, this is a great area to take your dogs. Adjacent to the new and modern YMCA building, this park has 2 separate areas for small and large dogs.
Oak Street is located in Myrtle Beach, one street over from the busy Hwy 17, and after 38th Ave North turns into a nice residential area, with lots of trees, shaded sidewalks and limited traffic.
North Myrtle Beach Dog Park
The newest dog park on the Grand Strand is located at the new North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex.
Myrtle Beach State Park
There are several nice trails through the coastal woods. You must pay admission at the gate and keep your dog on a leash, but if you enjoy mother nature, this is the place for you!
