Ocean City has one dog playground that is divided into 2 sections. There is a small dog area for dogs 28 pounds and under. There is also a large dog area for dogs over 28 pounds. The access cards will allow you to gain entry to the appropriate dog area during the scheduled hours of operation. The access pass issued will allow unlimited usage of the Ocean City Dog Playground located in Ocean City, Maryland from dawn to dusk, seven days a week, weather & conditions permitting. Please note that cards are non-transferable.

Price: The Town established the following price for the purchase of an access card. Revenue generated from the Dog Pass sales will be utilized to offset general site maintenance and operating expenses. An Ocean City property owner may register under the resident rate.

The “Dog-Pass” access cards are reusable and we ask that the weekly cardholders return their access cards at the end of their stay to help us offset annual park operating expenses. Once the cards are returned, the holder will receive a $5.00 refund from the Town Of Ocean City. Refunds may take up to 30 days to process and will only be issued in the form of a check; no cash refunds, sorry.
