Richmond in Contra Costa County was named for the more famous Richmond in Virginia. It’s a bustling city of more than a hundred thousand residents, and many, many dogs! There are three full service veterinary hospitals in Richmond, and the area caters to canines. To get a view of the natural beauty here, try the Wildcat Creek Trail, a 3 mile moderate looped trail that is perfect for looking down over the city.

If you want to hit the sand with your pup, the Point Pinole Regional Shoreline is a must see. The area is welcoming to leashed dogs, and offers a gorgeous view of the water. You can also go to Point Molate for a dog-friendly view of dunes and waves. Your leashed pup will love exploring the beach, and may make a friend as the area is popular with dog owners! If you need a boost of caffeine after all that exercise, Catahoula Coffee Company & Roastery is a dog-friendly place to sit and enjoy great coffee, and frequently, local bands.

For a great night’s sleep, you and your dog can retire to Extended Stay America Richmond Hilltop Mall. Pets sleep for a small pet fee, and humans sleep happy to know that there’s even more of Richmond to see tomorrow!

    #2 Point Richmond


    Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline in Point Richmond is a great place to visit with your dog. There are incredible views out over the bay, and lots of room to walk your dog! While your pup will have to stay on leash at the shoreline, there’s so much to see and sniff that they won’t even notice. You can walk the paths down to the water, or stay in the central green space for picnics and to rest up after all that walking. Bring your own water and bowl, and also some food for grilling if you want to make full use of the picnic grounds.

    #3 El Sobrante Hills


    El Sobrante Hills is a great place to live, and a good place to visit too, due largely to its proximity to the Sobrante Ridge Regional Preserve. This wilderness area is gorgeous, with trails to suit every activity level. The prevalence of wild animals in the area creates lots of interesting smells for dogs, and the views from Oakland to the Bay and beyond are worth it for humans. Some people also like getting away from the crowd. Sobrante Ridge Regional Preserve is a quiet, wilderness park. Bring your own water and a bowl to share with your canine best friend.

    #5 North and East

    The residential neighborhood of North and East in Richmond has two great parks for dog walking located just blocks apart. Start with Mira Vista Park. This park is on the smaller side, but the dense foliage around the outside and wide grassy field in the middle make it a perfect oasis. It’s great for short walks or lazy picnics. Tiller Park blocks away is busier, with a full playground and several sports fields. Dogs will love the walking paths and seeing all the people. Bring your own water to both parks, just to be sure to have some.
