Dog Walking in Boulder Creek

The city of Boulder Creek, California is located in Santa Cruz County. It’s not far from the major cities of Santa Cruz and San Jose, and Boulder Creek actually serves as the gateway city to California’s oldest state park, Big Basin Redwoods State Park. Up until the 1880s, Boulder Creek was a lumber town known as Lorenzo. So, why the change? The city actually took the name of one of its most popular buildings: the post office, which was informally referred to as “Boulder Creek.”

Unfortunately, if you’re a dog owner in Boulder Creek, or if you’re just visiting, you’ll have to travel outside of the city to find some dog-friendly places for you and Fido to hang out. Boulder Creek has no dog parks and no dog-friendly restaurants. Luckily, there are things you and your canine companion can do close by, so you won’t have to venture too far. Boulder Creek does have a veterinarian office, so if your pooch gets sick, care isn’t too far away. Don’t let this get you down, though; Boulder Creek is a great place to visit, and with so much nearby, this city is a great option even for dog owners!

About fifteen miles from Boulder Creek is Santa Cruz’s University Terrace Dog Park. This bark park gives your dog yet another opportunity to run around off-leash while getting in some serious exercise and making plenty of furtastic new friends! Dogs are not separated by size at this bark park, so keep that in mind if your dog only does well with dogs his own size. You’ll want to have some waste disposal bags and water with you, as the park doesn’t provide either of these things. Your dog can explore the rest of University Terrace Park with you as long as he stays on his leash.
