Leashed dogs are allowed at Northside Park and all the other OC parks all year round.  OC is a great town for dogs and even has free poop bags at all the parks and many other walking locations.

Leashed dogs are allowed on the boardwalk and beach from now until the end of April.

Dogs are not allowed on the beach or boardwalk in Ocean City anytime between 1 May and 30 September. Leashed dogs are allowed in OC's many parks year round. There is also a Dog Park on 94th Street. See this site for how to access the dog park.

Dogs are allowed in certain areas of Assateague National Seashore. See the Assateague National Seashore regulations here.

as long as it is before May 1 and before October 1.  Anytime between that, you can find a pet friendly park at Northside park on 125th St on bay side.

Hi Linda, as long they're on a leash your furry friend is welcome on the boards until May 1. then your furry friend can visit any of the various parks through out OC and they will be welcome to play and walk there.
