Opened in 2002, the Janine Jordan Dog Park is operated by the People Aware of the Well-being of the Speechless (PAWS). This small fenced in dog park has plenty of water dispensers so you need not worry about your dog getting dehydrated while enjoying running around and playing with other dogs.
There are two benches in the park where dog owners can spend their time relaxing while supervising their canine children. There are shade trees to take refuge in during hot afternoons. Poop bags and pooper scoopers are provided so dog owners can easily pick up after their dogs. Dog waste has been a constant complaint from other dog owners, so do your part to keep the place clean.
Although relatively small, the park has friendly people and grass for your dogs to roll on. It is a nice place for your dog to socialize with other canines and get the daily exercise he needs. It also has a golden fire hydrant which is a memorial to Panto, a Vacaville Police K-9 partner.
Keep in mind that there are no restrooms in or near the park so make sure you use the toilet before leaving the house with your pooch. Only well-socialized dogs should be brought to the park to avoid problems. You need not worry if you are planning to drive your car to the park as there is parking available at the nearby Lagoon Valley Park.
To access the park, there is a fee of $3 per day but an annual pass can also be purchased for $50 if you plan on going to the park regularly. The fee goes toward the upkeep of the park and the supplies it needs. You can be assured your membership money will be put to good use. However, if you are just passing through, $3 is well worth it to check out the park.
