BEACH NEWS:

Chapter 5 – BEACHES, WATERWAYS, BOARDWALK, PARKS, RECREATIONAL AREAS AND FACILITIES

According to Town Codes:

Bicycles, skateboards, skates and roller blades will be permitted on that certain sidewalk known as the “boardwalk” and also between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. every day of the year. No bicycles, scooters, blades, or skateboards are permitted on the town pier at any time.”

Town Code also states:

It shall be unlawful for any person who owns or has control of any animal to permit such animal to be on the public sand beaches or the boardwalk between April 1 and September 30 of each year. Any person violating this subsection (a) shall be guilty of a Class 4 misdemeanor.”

Which means dog owners have until March 31 to walk, run and play with their dogs on the beach or boardwalk. Be sure to take advantage of the Doggy Doo Stations throughout the town provided by Colonial Beach Rivah Dogs.
