If your pooch is itching to go off-leash, let them run loose at Aurantia Dog Park! This puppy playground is located within the picturesque, 12-acre Aurantia Park, near the foothills of Highland. Stroll past the stone pillar entrance, children's playground, and cellphone tower to find a fully fenced facility where your furry friend is free to run and play to their heart's content!
Aurantia Dog Park features two separate areas for large and small doggos, both of which provide a secure environment and plenty of room for canine citizens to romp unfettered. There are no shade trees or agility equipment, but visitors say that the area is always well-maintained. Pick-up bags and water fountains for both canines and humans are provided, so don't worry if you left your mutt mitts or water bottles at home. Benches and covered picnic tables for the dog parents are also available, but make sure to not get distracted by the chitchat and keep an eye on your charge at all times.
If your pup still has energy to burn after playing in the dog park, take them for a leashed walk around the main park. Hit the trails that meander around Aurantia, and check out the 100-year-old bridge that sits not far from the dog run. Originally part of six spans that crossed the Santa Ana River between Colton and Riverside in the early 1900s, the historic Plunge Creek Bridge was moved to Greenspot Road, then to its present location in the park. Cross the bridge with your pup to the small orange grove, where they are sure to have a snifftastic time exploring the area! As always, be sure to stoop and scoop if Fido makes a mess.
