Dog Parks
Letting Dogs Run Free
The Department of Recreation, Parks and Open Space has established dog parks in various city parks and open spaces. The city partners with civic leagues and dog park associations to provide these dog parks to the community. These parks provide an area where dog owners can allow their dogs to run leash free, subject to certain park rules.
