Since small, shy, and senior dogs often benefit from a space of their own where a gentler play style reigns, one of the enclosures has been set aside for their use. Visitors to this park space do make note that the gates to the play areas are misaligned, and thus, do not remain securely closed.
With safety in mind, owners should maintain a lead with them at all times. Alternatively, dogs who lack a sufficient recall or who are known escape artists should remain leashed. It is important to note that California law also expressly forbids off-leash dogs in any public area with the only exception being designated off-leash zones.
Memorial Dog Park is a public dog playground, and park officials warmly welcome all dogs and their owners to visit at no cost. This doggy play haven receives accolades from visitors for its ideal location and friendly vibe. The dog runs are lined with a mixture of dirt and gravel.
Some owners have remarked that the surface can lead to dirty dogs after a bout of inclement weather. Water is provided in the play spaces to ensure Fido and his favorite pals can access a cool drink when the urge strikes. Also housed in the enclosures are benches and picnic tables in areas which offer some shade.
Poop bags are not provided, but pooper scoopers are readily available on the grounds. Owners should bring bags with them from home to assist them with the proper cleanup and disposal of their pets' waste materials. Bathrooms are available for public use at Memorial Park.
Memorial Dog Park has not published any official regulations for those visiting their dog playground. However, up to date vaccinations and a city dog license are always appreciated. For a day of fun in a great California park, plan a visit to Memorial Dog Park!
