The Deputy Kotila Memorial Dog Park is uniquely situated under the expressway on the northeast side of downtown. This off-leash dog park is fenced with separate areas for large and small dogs. The park has an artificial turf surface, water fountains with built in pet bowls, seating for dog owners, and the location under the expressway provides shade to the park.
