About — Oceanside Dog Beach

Our Mission

Oceanside Dog Beach Inc. is a non-profit organized for the creation of a dog beach in Oceanside, CA.

Initiative Details:



Oceanside Harbor Beach - Tower 18 to North Jetty

  • Off-leash

  • Seasonal hours – TDB, closed during large events, etc.

  • Supplemental beach cleanups provided by ODBI (Oceanside Dog Beach Inc. 501(c)3) and our volunteers

  • Parking and bathrooms are available

  • Natural boundaries


Councilmember Kori Jensen says “It’s time…” for a dog beach in Oceanside.


Benefits of a Dog Park in Oceanside:

  • Become a premier California beach destination for pet-loving locals/visitors, and a great stop when traveling I-5 south to San Diego.

  • Keep visitors in Oceanside – Our website says dog-friendly but NOT on our beach.  VisitOceanside.org gives visitors a link to neighboring OB, Coronado, Fiesta Island and Del Mar dog beaches.  

  • Provide a true pet-friendly Oceanside - Local development/lodging all promoting “pet-friendly”, and many restaurants too.

  • Economic impact – Increased city revenue from parking, local business and community win.

  • No cost supplemental beach cleanup by ODBI volunteers. 

Goal One - Gather Support

Our petitions have gathered over 2,800+ signatures. It’s clear the Oceanside community wants a dog beach! This website’s primary goal is to gather further support to display to the City Council at our next presentation.


Goal Two - Collaborate

Our initial presentation with the Oceanside City Council on 12/1/21 went well. With a 3-2 vote, the council agrees to study this further. We will collaborate with the city and all supporters / stakeholders.


Goal Three - Approval

With enough community support, the Council will approve our initiative to create a dog beach in Oceanside!
