The Crescenta Valley Dog Park is located at Crescenta Valley Park in La Crescenta, California. Vehicle parking is available on the streets of the surrounding neighborhood. This dog park is a zone designated by the LA county authorities for exercising dogs off-leash. It is a spacious one and a half acre plot which is enclosed by head height chain-link fencing. There is a separate section for small dogs.
The entrance has a double gated staging area for leashing and unleashing dogs. The off-leash area is surfaced with a combination of bark chips and gravelly sand. There are several large, mature trees inside the off-leash area which provide excellent shade in sunny weather. These are surrounded by collections of boulders and stones which dogs can climb on.
There are paved areas in both the large and small dog off-leash sections where shelters have been placed for pet owners. These are complete with park benches. There are also more park benches under the shade of the trees. Dog-friendly water fountains have been installed. No dog toys, other than balls or frisbees, are allowed.
The Crescenta Valley Dog Park is very well maintained and is a popular dog park. Pet owners are requested to help keep it that way by making sure they pick up all fecal matter produced by their pets and dispose of it responsibly in the containers provided. Poop bags are available on site, but as a precautionary measure, it is recommended that owners always carry a supply on their person. The dog park is closed between 7 am and 9 am on Tuesday for cleaning.
