Dog Walking in El Centro

El Centro is the largest city in the Imperial Valley in California. Interestingly, it is also the largest city in the US to be completely below sea level! El Centro was first visited by Spanish explorer, Melchor Díaz in 1540, and this area still enjoys visitors throughout the year. It is also located close to the Algodone Dunes, which is the country’s largest dune field. For dog owners, there are five veterinary clinics and animal hospitals in El Centro, in case your pup needs emergency care.

The best place to head for a casual stroll with your pooch has got to be Bucklin Park. This puptastic spot is the largest park in the area, and it is great for some relaxation in the sun, with a path that wanders around the park perimeter. There are trees for some shade, as well as some sniff-tastic grass for your dog to investigate. For the kids, there is a playground, as well as a pond where there are often ducks you can feed. In addition, there are grills and a picnic area where you can chill out and enjoy a day out with your pup and family. It is recommended to keep your dog on their leash here.
