Live in San Diego or planning a visit there soon? If yes, then you and your dog Spot should check out Torrey Highlands Dog Park. Located behind the Torrey Pines High School inside the Torrey Highlands Park, this one-acre dog park is also called the Torrey Pines Dog Park, and offers a fenced-in area with dirt and grass for Spot’s play.
Can Spot hold his own with both large and small dogs? This park only has one space, so canines of all sizes play together peacefully - hopefully. You will also appreciate that there’s a bathroom nearby, lots of trash cans, and water available for Spot.
Visitors comment that some owners don't pick up after their dogs even though there are poop bags readily available. They also mention that parking can be an issue, especially if sporting events are going on at the school. And some previous visitors say that the majority of the dogs fall into the bulkier category, which can intimidate those teeny Chiweenies.
But Spot will love that he can run free without his leash, just remember that you need to keep it on hand. Bring the sunscreen because there are very few trees on the premises. Don't worry, Spot will love frolicking in the sun. You'll be happy to know that you don’t need to run with him because you can sit on the benches.
There's also a nice little walking path that goes through the park so you and Spot can take a stroll. This dog park clearly posts rules, stating that Spot needs to have his license and up-to-date vaccinations. The signs remind owners that aggressive dogs need to stay home, and Spot must be under voice or whistle control.
Torrey Highlands Dog Park remains a fun place for Spot to get in an afternoon jog while you sit on a park bench and enjoy some rest. Make sure you have your leash on hand, place your trash in the provided cans, and clean up Spot’s poo. If you follow these fundamental rules, you and Spot will have a barktastic time.
