A 2.5-acre haven for canines of all sizes, North Natomas Regional Dog Park, has 2 acres of that area reserved for dogs over 25 lbs and half an acre for tiny and timid dogs. Separating dogs of different sizes helps protect small furbabies from being hurt by larger dogs.
Both areas are grassy but mostly covered in gravel and sand, so you might bathe after a day of fun to get rid of all the dust, especially specific breeds which seem to be just like Velcro. The bark park offers plenty of parking so pet parents who would like to drive with their doggies need not worry where to leave their car.
The North Natomas Regional Dog Park was opened in October 2009, and since then it has been a favorite of pet parents and their dogs. There are a few little hills for dogs to run over, so they get ample exercise and do not end up taking their energy out on something else at home.
There are a few trees that provide shade, but what park goers clamor for are more shade where they can take refuge in from the hot sun. There is a water fountain in the park, but it is best that you bring some for yourself and your furbaby because a few park goers have mentioned that sometimes the water fountain does not work. It is best to be prepared.
There are waste stations all throughout where you can get rid of dog poop but do bring your dog poop scoopers as the park does not have them. Pet parents who frequent the place are very friendly and always pick up after their pets, so the place is clean. Their dogs are equally well-behaved too. North Natomas is one of the few parks where there are no reports of aggressive dogs.
