HAMPTON — If you need a space to let your dog run free, Hampton has your back.

The Downtown Hampton Development Partnership announced the addition of a dog park and urban beach to Carousel Park (602 Settlers Landing Road) which opened to the public Wednesday.

“The ‘urban beach’ and the dog park, along with the beautiful Hampton Carousel, are going to be wonderful amenities for all the new Hampton citizens who will be moving here,” said Hampton Public Space Chairwoman Gay Larue.

The park will allow dog owners to watch their dogs play and run in an enclosed area.

Along with this new dog run activity area there will also be an urban beach added right next door.

“I am so excited about the new dog exercising area that will be located next to the carousel in Carousel Park, “said Downtown Hampton Development Partnership Board Member Regina Mays.

“It will be greatly appreciated by the visiting boaters who travel with their dogs, giving them a chance to exercise off leash. It is also good place for local dog owners to hang out with their pets and meet new people and make new friends. I am looking forward to spending a lot of time there,” she said.
