Nestled amongst the tall pine trees of Paradise, California, the Lezlie Morrow Memorial Dog Park is inside Lezlie Morrow Park. Equipped with plenty of shade, lots of benches for seating, access to water, and lots of fenced-in room to play, this off-leash pet-friendly park is a perfect part of Paradise!
The park has many other features and sections in addition to the dog park, which features two fenced areas for large and small dogs. The park also includes two ball fields, a great playground for children, a riding arena, and ropes course for horses. The ball fields can be reserved for private use, though the rest of the park is free and open year-round.
Dogs are also permitted elsewhere in the park on a short leash of no more than six feet in length, with the exception of on the playing fields. Paradise Memorial Trailway is a paved walking path that runs along the back side of the park near Skyway, and is also open to dogs on a leash.
The dog park provides waste bags for picking up after your pet, but you should always come prepared. When visiting the park, be a responsible pet owner and keep the park clean of dog waste and human litter. You should also never bring small children, aggressive dogs, females in heat, or puppies that are not current on all required vaccinations. Illnesses can easily be spread to unvaccinated pups and you may end up with costly vet bills or needless harm to your dog.
Lezlie Morrow Dog Park may be a little difficult to find, as the main road through Paradise is no longer a through road to the park. Instead, visitors have to take a forest service road from Clark Road to access the park.
Despite being a hidden gem in the little mountain town of Paradise, Lezlie Morrow Memorial Park is a spot you can’t miss out on—for you, your family, and your four-legged companion.
