Aggressive or large canines who have not been socialized with small breed dogs could end up doing severe harm to someone's furbaby so be aware. However, if your canine is well behaved and does not run, this park is extraordinary. It lacks many of the amenities you would expect from a dog park. There is no running water here; you will need to bring your own or let your canine drink from the creek.
There are public restrooms here at the Walnut Creek Park Off-Leash Area, but not in the immediate area of the off-leash section. Doggie bags are not readily available so you should bring your own and garbage cans for you to throw the waste away are scattered throughout the park.
This off-leash park has pondside access, and it allows your canines to swim and frolick along the edge of the pond. It is not large, but your canines have free roam. There is also plenty of space in this off-leash area to play long range games like fetch or frisbee.
There are some inherent drawbacks to a park like this outside from just the lack of amenities. The waterfront access, though beloved by many dogs, does make for muddy shores and quite the mess if your canine likes to play in the water. Bring towels and plan a trip to the groomers!
If your four-footed friend is well trained and stays in sight and under your voice command, this park is about as good as you can ask for. Your dog will absolutely love this dog park. It has plenty of space, beautiful views, tons of trees for shade, and waterfront access. The Walnut Creek Park Off-Leash Area is exceptional.
