All the pups living in San Jose celebrated the day the city opened Hart's Dog Park. The dog park may have been named after a department store that once occupied the site, but the city pooches aren't into retail therapy. They head to the dog park for some pawrific off-leash social time.
The Hart's Dog Park is a green, astro-turfed oasis for pups amid the city's high-rises, walled with chain-link fencing and a security staging gate. There's a busy road running right by the park, so don't forget to close the gate securely before unleashing your pup. Bag dispensers and trash cans are located by the gate, so grab some as you go in. Take a few of your own too as the park's stock can sometimes run out. Take water for your fur baby as well, as there's no supply on hand.
This park has been colorfully decorated with a furrific mural depicting a loving pet parent and their pooch, plus lots of potted plants. There are benches lining the sides of the compound if you need a sit-down and some stumpy tree-trunks for pups to clamber on.
Large and small doggos need to share this half acre run, and good conduct is expected from all. There's not a lot of room for bigger breeds to bound around, and pet parents of mini mutts need to keep a watchful eye on their dog to make sure they don't get accidentally bowled over.
Make sure your fur bud is up to date with their vaccinations and has a current license before letting them loose to play with the other dogs. It's the state law and so is cleaning up after your pup. The Hart's Dog Park is a great little canine community hub for the pups of San Jose that your pup is sure to love!
