This dog park is situated on an incline that is lacking grass, so get ready for your dogs to get a little dirty. The park also has paved pathways for pleasant walks, trees for shade, and seating for you to sit and watch your pup chase his ball down the hill. After running around and having fun, your dog can take a drink from the water fountain. If you get thirsty too, don't worry; the park designers thought about humans, too, and there's a fountain for you.
Little dogs and big dogs are welcome to play at this park, but make sure you keep an eye on them and clean up after your pup. Of course, make sure you clean up after his business with a bag but make sure your dog's favorite ball doesn't become an orphaned ball at the bottom of this hill, either.
If your dog hasn't mastered fetch or is just too tired after his fun day at the park and you have to retrieve his ball from the bottom of the hill, don't worry, there are stairs. The hill makes for great exercise, both for your dog and you, especially if he does a role reversal and makes you fetch.
The park lies along Linda Avenue, which explains the name. You and your pooch can enter the park from three locations, which include across from Beach Elementary School on Linda Ave.; at Linda Ave. and Lake Ave.; or at Oakland Ave. and Sunnyside Ave.
