Off-leash areas for dogs

Velsen has plenty of spots that are perfect for walking your dog. You are permitted to allow your dog to walk and run off the leash throughout the whole year at the following locations:


At the beach by IJmuiderslag, dogs can play off the leash to their hearts’ content throughout the year. From 1 October to 1 April, this is even permitted along the entire coast of Velsen (including IJmuiden aan Zee and Strand Noorderpier).

Park Beeckestijn

The gardens of the 18th-century country estate Beeckestijn in Velsen-Zuid are a beautiful location for many lovely walks.

Park Velserbeek

A great park for walking; if you have kids, the visit can be combined with a stop at the petting zoo and the playground.
