Dogbone Meadows is a public dog park located at the O’Hair Park in Novato, California. In addition to the dog park, the 100-acre community park is home to an equestrian center, and a variety of biking, hiking, and walking trails that leashed canines are welcome on.
The two-acre Dogbone Meadows Dog Park provides tons of room for dogs to roam, play, and exercise without a leash. It has a well-thought-out layout that consists of two separate, double-gated areas for dogs to enjoy. There is a section for small dog breeds and a large dog run.
Both provide plenty of space for dogs to stretch their legs in a safe, securely fenced environment. The dog park is lined with trees around the perimeter which provide a decent amount of shade, while the park's surface consists of dirt and a grassy area in the middle of the dog park.
Make sure to pack a towel for your pooches paws as playtime can get muddy or dusty depending on the weather. The dog park is equipped with agility equipment which includes hoops and rings dogs can jump through, an A-frame they can climb on and tunnels they can run through.
Plus, there are lots of toys and tennis balls scattered throughout the off-leash areas, which are great for playtime but may be dangerous if your dog is a chewer. The dog park features free waste bag dispensers and well-placed trash cans that owners use to clean up after their four-legged companions.
Owners do not need to be concerned about their dogs staying hydrated during their visit as the dog park is equipped with water stations, water bowls and kiddie pools during the summer. There are also a few benches that owners can relax on while they watch their pooches play, however, most of them are uncovered.
In addition to the above, the dog park overlooks beautiful hills and lush greenery, making it a relaxing environment for both owners and dogs to spend time in. There are scenic trails that run throughout the park too, in case your dog prefers to sniff and explore on a leash.
