Situated on the Cesar Chavez Park grounds is a section designated for off-leash play. It is important for all dog owners to be aware that there is no fencing in Cesar Chavez Off-Leash Dog Area. Dogs who lack sufficient recall should remain on a lead and are required to be leashed in all other areas of the park in accordance with California state law. Visitors to this doggy playground note that there are sometimes holes left behind from previous digging dogs. It is required that all owners repair any damage to the property, but they should also watch carefully where they step so as to avoid any remaining holes.
Access to this public play space is free of charge. Bathrooms are available on the premises for use by the public. It is unknown if there is a potable water source on-site. Owners should carry a bottle of water and a suitable drinking vessel with them to help keep Fido well-hydrated during his play time at the park. Picnic areas are provided in shaded areas where owners can relax and enjoy a quiet meal with their families.
Park officials warn owners to be on the lookout for foxtail. Foxtail particles can easily become embedded in your dog's skin, hair, and paw pads. They are incredibly painful and difficult to remove. As an added note, all owners should be aware that cell service is very limited at this beautiful park space.
Complimentary poop bags are available on-site. Owners are required to pick up and properly dispose of all canine waste. Though no specific rules govern the use of this public facility, it is highly recommended that dogs be current on all vaccinations and bear the appropriate required state license tag on their collars.
