The Discovery Dog Park is in this neighborhood in San Jose, about ten minutes away from Santa Clara. The park has redwoods throughout it and features a tall fence that that dogs can’t jump. The park has water fountains for both dogs and dog owners, plenty of shade, and benches for owners to sit on. The park itself is big and not separated by size, so if you’re worried about your small dog running with the big ones, you may want to consider a different park. After a fun day, stop by Poor House Bistro for some tasty food. Poor House Bistro offers Cajun and Creole dishes and has outdoor seating that is dog friendly.
