WESTPORT, Conn. -- Dogs will be allowed back on Compo Beach in Westport beginning Sunday, Oct. 1 through March 31, 2018.
Parks and Recreation Director Jennifer Fava reminded residents and visitors that there are still some restrictions on animals at the beach. Dogs are prohibited from the Pavilion, playground and boardwalk. All dogs must be leashed in all areas of the park, except in designated off leash areas of the beach south of the Pavilion, including South Beach. Off leash regulations are posted at the entrance to the off leash areas.
Owners are required by law to pick up their dogs' feces. Violation of any of these regulations will be subject to a $77 fine.
“We hope everyone will follow these regulations and be respectful of other dogs and beach users," Fava said. "We appreciate your cooperation.”
