WESTPORT, Conn. — Animals will not be permitted at Compo, Old Mill and Burying Hill Beaches in Westport as of Friday, April 1.
Animals in or out of vehicles will not be allowed on any beach property which includes all grass, sand and parking areas, except Soundview parking lot at Compo Beach, as well as the roads within the beach area. The regulation is in effect until Saturday, Oct. 1.
“Warm weather will be here before we know it, and we are looking forward to participating in the many outdoor activities available to residents. We have regulations in place to ensure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to enjoy the public beaches, fields and facilities in Westport,” said Westport Parks and Recreation Director Jennifer Fava.
Animals are also not allowed on playing fields at any time of year. It is recommended that dogs remain on a leash while on the perimeter of those town facilities. Owners are welcome to walk dogs on a leash on the road around Longshore Golf Course, but animals are not allowed on the course.
“We love our furry friends and dogs are always welcome at Winslow Park. Located at Compo Road North and Post Road East, Winslow Park has posted on- and off-leash areas. The public is requested to heed those posted regulations while enjoying the park with their dogs,” Fava continued.
