During the California Gold Rush in 1848, a small town in El Dorado County was named Dry Diggins because of the way the gold miners moved soil to get to the gold. One year later, it was named Hangtown because they did so many hangings there. In 1854, it was finally named Placerville because the churches requested the town get a nicer name. There are an estimated 2,370 dogs in town and some great dog-friendly places to take Fido when you visit.

Ashley Memorial Dog Park is the favorite hangout in the Placerville area, and you can see why if you go there. There is a separate area for small/shy dogs, fountains, two kiddie pools, many toys, and plenty of seating for the humans. To top it off there is a pond with a waterfall! The dogs love it!

Hacienda Dog Park on Cameron Park Drive is a beautiful shady park with lots of seating, toys, trees, and water fountains. Separated areas for big and small dogs, plenty of dog waste bags, and bag receptacles. There are always a lot of friendly dogs, and nice people.

FIDO Field – Folsom Dog Park is another awesome park for pooches that love to run and have fun. Lots of grassy space and toys around, fountains and water bowls, and even some little puppy pools. There are shaded benches for the humans and waste bags for cleaning up.
