All you need is love…. And a dog.

Because no one loves us as unconditionally as a dog, here are the best free dog parks on the Grand Strand.


Barc Parc North

5000 Claire Chapin Epps Dr. Myrtle Beach, SC

One of two Barc Parks in the area, this 3.3 acre, off-leash dog park is located next to the YMCA building off of 62nd Ave in Myrtle Beach. It features two separate fenced areas, one for small dogs and one for large dogs. Trees offer plenty of shade and there are water fountains to keep your dog hydrated.


Barc Parc South

670 Mallard Lake Dr. Myrtle Beach, SC

Close to the Market Common, this 14-acre fenced dog park features a large lake that is perfect for big dogs that enjoy chasing balls in the water. In addition, there is a walking path with benches, doggie water fountains, and multiple bins with free baggies.


McLean Park

350 2nd Ave S, North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582

While you’ll need to keep your dog on a leash at McLean Park, it is still a great place to take your best pal for some exercise. Take a walk around the lake or enjoy the green space with plenty of shade. There are waste receptacles with baggies for easy clean up.


Dirty Dawg Pet Wash Dog Park

150 Citizens Circle, Little River

This leash-free playground for dogs is part of the North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex. It has separate fenced-in areas for small and large dogs, as well as waste baggies and water fountains. The park is named for Dirty Dawg Pet Wash, the first self-serve pet wash in the area, located at 317 Main Street in North Myrtle Beach.
