The Nisenan Maidu, an ancient culture, once called Roseville home. Now Roseville is home to over 100,000 people, many of whom have dogs. The city welcomes pets, offering places for them to play and places for them to stay.
Five parks located throughout the city welcome canines. Walk with your leashed dog on the trails in Maidu Dog Park, a small section of a larger park (also the site of the Maidu Museum). Or, let them run in a special fenced-in dog run at Saugstad Park. The city’s other three parks cater specifically to canines: Marco Dog Park, where you and your dogs can exercise on hilly terrain; Bear Dog Park, which has agility equipment, trails, wading pools and rinsing stations all set up for canines; and William “Bill” Hughes Dog Park, which provides water and shade trees for dogs to enjoy and even boasts a sculpture of a giant dog in a giant dog bed.
A handful of restaurants in Roseville permits pets on their patios. Sonic Drive-In, Taste of India and Jack’s Urban Eats all allow leashed pets to accompany their owners to outside tables.
Bring your dog and spend the night any of at several dog-friendly motels in Roseville, such as Best Western, Homewood Suites and the Hyatt Regency. The hotels want their guests, both human and canine, to be comfortable. Additional fees are charged for pets, and some restrictions do apply, so be sure to call ahead for details.
Whether residing in Roseville or just passing through, pet owners can rest assured their pets are welcome in this pet-friendly city.
