After years of discussion, Sea Isle City will finally be getting a dog park as part of a project that will begin construction this fall.

The new park will located on an open lot on 7th Street near the parking lots that were finished in 2019.

Plans for Dog Park include dog-friendly obstacles, two pavilions to provide shade, water fountains, and double-gated entries to ensure a fenced-in area for all dogs to have fun and be safe.

Sea Isle City Mayor Lenny Desiderio released the following state after City Council awarded the construction project:

The construction of a dog park has been an item repeatedly requested over the years in Sea Isle.  During the city’s last master plan re-examination process, we conducted an extensive community-wide survey, and there was an overwhelming response from community members asking that we get this done.  The city has done the necessary planning for this project, and we’ve taken it through the county open space process in order to get our application approved for eligibility to receive reimbursement of 75% of the costs of the project.

A 24x30' shaded pavilion will also be built outside of the dog park for people to enjoy as the north end of Sea Isle City is also a popular beach destination since it is away from downtown.

The plan is for the project to begin construction during the fall and have the dog park grand opening before the 2024 summer season.

The timing is significant because Sea Isle City residents are allowed to bring their dogs on the beaches during the offseason but no pets are allowed on the beaches during the summer.
