The beach at Gilbert's Cosmo Dog Park, 2502 E. Ray Road, is closed until late August for maintenance work.
Also, the dry area outside of the dog beach will close from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Aug. 17-19.
The remainder of the dog park continues to be open for dogs to play off leash. That includes a large off-leash area with training equipment, and a smaller area for timid dogs.
Cosmo was named the fourth-best dog park in the nation by Dog Fancy Magazine earlier this year. That magazine called Cosmo dog park of the year in 2007. The facility opened in 2006.
