Gateway Sets Summer Pets Policy

Gateway Sets Summer Pets Policy

The National Park Service has clarified its policy on pets in Riis Park and Fort Tilden for the coming summer season.

According to Rita Mullally, a spokesperson for the park, dogs and other pets are prohibited from all of Rockaway’s Gateway Park beaches, including Jacob Riis Park, Fort Tilden, and Breezy Point, from March 15 through September 15.

Mullally says, however, that dogs are welcome in many other areas of each of these sites provided that they are kept on a leash, are restrained in the presence of other visitors and that the owners follow the pooper-scooper laws of New York City in the park area.

Those interested in further information on Gateway’s pet policy should contact the Fort Tilden Visitor’s Center.
