Claremont Pooch Park is a public dog park located at the College Park in Claremont, California. In addition to the dog park, the eight-acre park is home to three baseball fields, a playground, a snack shack and a picnic area, making it a great location for a day outdoors with the family. The park also features public restrooms and spacious parking lots.
The dog park was opened in July 1996, not only has it become very popular since then it was also the first dog park to open in Claremont. The Claremont Pooch Park has a well-thought-out layout, and it is equipped with everything you would want in a dog park. It is securely fenced and consists of two separate areas for dogs to enjoy without a leash.
There is a small dog section and a large dog run, both of which provide tons of space for pooches to stretch their legs, play and socialize with their canine buddies. What is great about this dog park is that both runs offer the same amenities. There are drinking fountains in both runs. Since the dog park's surface consists of grass the areas around them get muddy so make sure you have a towel in your car for your dog's paws.
Both areas feature several picnic tables and benches, as well as plenty of shade for owners and dogs to cool off in. Plus, there are free waste bag dispensers in both runs which encourage owners to clean up after their canine companions. There is also a walking or running track in each run that allows owners to jog on a comfortable gravel path while they watch their dogs and get some exercise too.
The only downside to this dog park is that the fence is under four feet which quite low, especially for some breeds that could jump over it. If your pooch is a jumper, make sure to keep an eye on his whereabouts at all times. Lastly, since dogs dig watch your step and be cautious after rainfall as the dog park's surface gets slippery.
