Corona Dog Park is a fenced, off-leash area in the Butterfield Stage Trail Park. Opened in 2003, it has shaded areas where dog owners can sit and take respite while not forgetting to supervise their pooches closely. The terrific shade offered by the trees gives ample protection from the sun during hot afternoons.
The park has drinking fountains located just outside the fenced dog park, so dog owners need not worry that their dogs will end up dehydrated after a day of running, playing wither other dogs and having fun. The park is a pleasant surprise because it is well-maintained.
It has good lighting, and there are plenty of benches. However, mud is a constant problem during rainy days. Parking is also plentiful, so those who would like to drive to the park won’t be left scratching their head trying to find available parking space.
Dog owners are encouraged to pick up after their dogs to make the park a clean and orderly place in which both people and canines can enjoy. Indeed, nobody wants to end up stepping on dog poop. The park has two different sections, one for large dogs and another for small dogs.
Some park goers have complained of irresponsible large dog owners who take their canines to the small dog area, which ends up scaring not only the small dogs but their owners too. It seems that there are also dog owners who do not know how to control their dogs.
Go during the week because there are fewer people and dogs and it is easier to find parking too. The crowd gets too big during weekends because there are also other events happening at the park. The park is closed on Thursdays for maintenance, but it is open from sunup to sundown all other days of the week.
