Liberty Station is located southeast of Rosencrans Road and northwest of the boat channel which provides waterfront property along the southeast border of the community. This neighborhood occupies 361 acres and is divided into several districts including an educational district, retail district, residential districts, hotel district, office district, and a promenade and park along the boat channel.
The site of a former naval training center, Liberty Station, is listed on the national register of Historic Places and structures have been repurposed to office and retail space. Residential dwellings in the region consist of military housing with Spanish architecture and private properties. Landscaping on residential properties is limited and there is not a lot of large shade trees present.
A historic golf course is located on the north side of the region and provides manicured green space. The terrain is flat with no steep hills for people and pets to climb up and sidewalks along streets provide safe walking paths for you and your pup.
The Liberty Station NTC Park is located along the waterfront and has beautifully maintained open lawns and shade trees with a memorial to those lost at sea during World War II. Other amenities in the park include a playground, basketball court, sports fields, and picnic sites. Paved walking paths in the park can be enjoyed by people with pets, but your dog must be leashed.
For off-leash fun, you can drive 10 minutes north to the Dusty Rhodes Dog Park. This fenced-in dog park allows your pup to play loose, but you should still supervise and clean up after your pet. Your canine companion must have vaccinations up to date and be licensed to enjoy this park.
Ocean Beach Dog Beach is not far to the northwest and can be reached by vehicle. This is one of the few San Diego beaches where dogs are allowed and makes a great place for your puppy to play in the surf.
