The Nipomo Regional Dog Park is an extension of the extremely popular Nipomo Community Park. The park rests on over 140 acres of land, with varied and interesting types of terrain available to explore. On average, Nipomo Community Park reaches a maximum of between 25,000-30,000 patrons a month during the popular summer period.
The off-leash Nipomo Regional Dog Park itself is a well-maintained patch of land, roughly two acres in size. There are many shady areas for your dog to rest on and survey the area. The dog park is fenced off from the rest of the community park to ensure safety for guests and for your canine. Watering stations are also available for free inside.
Nipomo Community Park itself boasts three large group areas available for rental, in addition to four regulation size softball diamonds. Over the past five years, the city of San Luis Obispo has also installed a 3/4 size football field, as well as a 3/4 size soccer field. During the summer months these tend to fill up quickly, so make sure to contact the city for rental as early as possible. All games held in these fields are free to the public.
As far as first-come, first-serve amenities beyond the dog park are concerned, there's still a lot offered by Nipomo Community Park. The newly remodeled tennis courts are huge, and the sand volleyball pits are maintained very regularly throughout the warmer months. Rackets and balls are available for rental at the park's central office, usually staffed from 8AM-4PM on weekdays.
The park also contains a large native garden, located at the northernmost tip of the park. This 4-acre garden contains several seasonal species that bloom at different times throughout the year. The seven unique walking trails that run throughout the bulk of the park all contain segments that run through into this tucked away treasure, so as long as your canine is on a leash they can enjoy the flowers as well!
