Overview
More
Mewsbrook Park is just a minute’s walk from the beach in the seaside resort of Littlehampton, West Sussex. It covers approximately four hectares and boasts a number of attractions including boating lake, miniature railway, café, original art deco shelters and children’s play area. Opened in 1939, the Mewsbrook sets a high horticultural bench mark for public parks. Large shrub and long herbaceous borders together with bee and butterfly gardens provide colour and interest throughout the year. The lake serves as an excellent local amenity, and is regularly used by visitors for boating. The lake and island are also a haven for wildlife. Starting in 2017 a new leisure centre is to be built, accommodating a proportion of Ruby Gardens. A re landscaped Ruby Gardens is anticipated to open in 2018 with focus on conservation. There is a positive sense of community in the park, supported by the Friends of Mewsbrook Park, Mewsbrook Park Café and Boat Hire and Littlehampton Miniature Railway.

Yes they can but please ensure that they don't go into the lake or chase the wildfowl. There is a dog friendly café at the southern end of the park.
