In the north end of the Charles L. Lewis III Memorial Park in the City Heights neighborhood, you can find one of these fur-bulous pup playgrounds! This half-acre, fully fenced dog area is paw-fect for socializing and burning off some stored energy. This long run offers plenty of room to chase a ball or race with a new bark buddy, and its crushed granite surface is easy on the paws. There is only one open space, so small doggos should be comfortable running with bigger pooches.
Benches are scattered around the park, some under the shade trees along the fence. The play surface can get hot in San Diego's summer sun, so be sure to equip your fur baby's feet with light booties or paw wax to prevent burns. Sunscreen on sensitive areas like the nose, ear tips, and tummy can prevent painful sunburn and sun-related skin cancers as well.
Parking is available on the neighboring streets. A water fountain just outside of the fence keeps pooches from becoming dangerously dehydrated, just be sure to bring a bowl. There are plenty of trash containers for doggy waste, but the park doesn't provide bags, so remember to bring some and leave nothing behind.
To visit the doggy playground, pups must display their current license and rabies tags. Licenses are obtained through the San Diego Humane Society. All doggos must be practicing good park petiquette, and be leashed when entering or exiting the dog area, as well as when exploring the rest of Charles L. Lewis III Memorial Park.
For a pawtastic afternoon your dog will love, visit the Charles L Lewis III Memorial Park Off-Leash Dog Area!
