Looking for a friendly place to take your dog? Head to Hellyer Dog Park on Hellyer Avenue. Hellyer Dog Park is a huge fenced-in dog park where dogs can run and play off-leash. This dog park is known for its friendly crowd, so you and your pooch may walk away with new friends every time you visit! Drinking water is offered at the park, and free parking is available off-site. Parking on the grounds does cost a fee.
If you love the outdoors and history, then the Almaden Quicksilver County Park is the place for you. With over 34.2 miles of hiking trails engraved within the historic California mining landscape, you and your dog can get some good exercise and quality bonding time while experiencing a bit of history from the late 19th century. Dogs are strictly required to be leashed, on a leash no longer than six feet, and the count of dogs is limited to two (2) per handler (handlers must be 16 years or older). All dogs visiting must have a valid license (proof of licensure) and vaccinations, be well-behaved, and cleaned up after. Dogs in heat are not permitted.
