East Palo Alto is a small town on the shore of the San Francisco Bay, 20 miles north of San Jose. The area of East Palo Alto has been populated since 1000 BCE, with a long history of different people and ethnicities inhabiting the area. East Palo Alto still has a multi-ethnic population today, and a lot of pups of different breeds, shapes, and sizes, and welcomes all of them to the city's public, dog-friendly parks. While East Palo Alto has no veterinarians of its own, twelve can be found in the neighboring Palo Alto.
On the northern edge of the city is the Ravenswood Open Space Preserve, an area that is rich in thick vegetation and natural marshlands. There are over 3 miles of trails and boardwalks, with an observation deck, recreational area, and picnic shelter. The preserve is open from dawn until dusk, and is dog-friendly to leashed pups, as long as they remain on a short leash and under voice command at all times. There are benches, water fountains, and trash bins in the picnic and recreation area.
The Martin Luther King Park is right in town, and offers a developed, well-maintained area with trimmed grass, shaded sitting areas, and grassy open areas to enjoy. Dogs can run around in the open area, play in the fenced-in baseball field, or take a nice long stroll on the paved path that encircles the park. There are benches, a playground, restrooms, water fountains, trash bins, and picnic tables available.
With ocean views and plenty of outdoor adventures, East Palo Alto is just waiting for you and your pup to explore!
