Walking your dogs: the rules
From 1 January 2021, the township of Noordwijk has a general duty to clean up in built-up areas. Before the merger of the townships of Noordwijk and Noordwijkerhout, Noordwijk and Noordwijkerhout had their own dog policy with sometimes different rules. These rules have been harmonized. This means that there are no more dag walking areas in the residence of Noordwijk. The duty to clean up also applies in the off-leash area Kruydpark in the residence Noordwijk.
Cleaning up dog poo
Dogs are kept on a leash in built-up areas and you have to clean up dog poo everywhere yourself. Free dog poop bags can be picked up at Noordwijk town hall.
Playgrounds and playing fields
Dogs are not allowed on playgrounds and playing fields. This is indicated by a prohibition sign.
Different rules apply on the beach in the high and low season. Please see dogs on the beach for more information.
