Novato is a beautiful northwestern town in the North Bay area of San Francisco Bay in Marin County, about 30 miles north of San Francisco. The city started as Coast Miwok villages and was named after the Miwok leader, Saint Novatus. Novato is home to more trails and open area than any city in Marin County, which includes several dog parks for the approximate 11,650 dogs living in Novato.

Dogbone Meadows at O’Hare Park on Novato Boulevard is the local favorite with lots of play equipment, a doggy pool, lots of grass, and water spigots. Have a seat on one of the many benches or covered picnic tables while you watch your fur baby socialize with the other cute four-legged visitors.

Marin Humane Society has a 7.5-acre dog park with walking trails, water fountains, and tons of free parking. The park area also has a huge field of agility equipment with obstacles, tunnels, jumps, hoops, poles, tables, and ramps. They actually have more equipment than the dog shows.

Indian Tree Open Space is a 230-acre preserve with several trails in the redwood forests and along the ridges with gorgeous views of Stafford Lake and Mount Saint Helena. The trails range from pretty easy (you might not even break a sweat, or more importantly, wear down Fido!) to moderate difficulty levels. You will see many kinds of wildlife and beautiful flowers and trees, so bring a camera.

Central Novato is home to many dogs. Dogs and their people look for those opportunities for some outdoor walking. Scenic walking or hiking is available in the numerous parks closeby. Lee Gerner Park, Slade Park, and Scottsdale Pond are a short drive away from home. These parks give dogs a chance to let their fur down and take a good walk on leash with their favorite human. Dogs in need of grooming after that walk can get it at Perro’s Grooming at 208 Vintage. Perro’s can take a bit off the top, or just give a soothing bath and comb.
