They are currently in the process of receiving bids for a replacement shade structure and will have a unit purchased and installed shortly.  

In the meantime, enjoy plenty of seating at the Dog Park, which will continue to be improved over the next few weeks.  Other items to note are:

  • Installation of additional signage and leash racks
  • A new message board will be installed in the next few weeks by Public Works
  • A new doggy water fountain along with a small agility ramp have been ordered and will be installed shortly

We will provide more photos updates when the new features have been installed.  

As we move into the winter rainy season, the grass portion of the Dog Park will be closed on inclement weather days.  We thank you for your understanding and patience as the Dog Park is undergoing renovations and facility improvements!  If you have any questions, please reach out the Parks and Recreation Dept. at (415) 508-2140.
