Beaches and Dogs
The select board agreed at their May 3 meeting to open Campground Beach and Wiley Park to both Eastham beach sticker holders and $25 day passes that can be purchased from the parking lot gate attendants.
“The reason for adding Wiley is because the Great Pond side is sticker only, and Wiley has public restrooms, water, a playground, and good parking,” said Town Administrator Jacqui Beebe.
While people will be welcome at the beaches, the same cannot be said for dogs, as board member Art Autorino asked recreation and beach dept. director Christine Mickle if the beaches could be checked periodically for violators of the “no dogs allowed” rules.
“There’s big signs there and they just basically ignore them,” said Autorino.
Board chair Jamie Demetri noted seeing “more and more people with dogs” and suggested that for next year the board consider adding another dog friendly beach.
“One of the issues we have is people aren’t picking up after their dogs — even when we allow them on the beach,” said Autorino. —Linda Culhane
