Named after Fred Wiseman, who delivered the first Airmail in 1911, Wiseman Airport Park in Petaluma is a vast 21-acre park that features two soccer fields, two softball fields, playgrounds, walking paths, and bicycle paths. Managed by the City of Petaluma, the off-leash area is the athletic fields which can only be used by canines for a limited time, from 6 AM to 11 AM on Mondays to Fridays, and 6 AM to 8 AM on weekends.
Located right by the airport, pet parents and their four-legged friends can always see and hear planes flying. There are tons of open space where Spike can run and have the time of the day exercising and socializing with fellow canines. There is also some shade to take refuge in if the sun is too much to bear in the afternoons.
There is a trail that meanders along a seasonal stream, a vineyard, cow pastures, and the start of the runway of the Petaluma Airport. The scenery is something people can enjoy with their pets, but only if they are on a leash. Canines are only allowed off-leash in the designated area.
There are drinking fountains in the park, so dog owners and their furbabies do not get thirsty while exploring the place and enjoying themselves. There is a limit of only three dogs per person and the dogs must always be under voice control. Pet parents must be with their furbabies in the designated area and must not be left alone.
No dog poop bags are available so you must bring some and pick up after your dogs, as all responsible pet owners should. The park is a shared space, so pet parents must be mindful of their pets and other people, especially children, who are also playing around or enjoying the scenery.
