Update to Dog Off-Leash Areas

March 30, 2020

An executive order is currently in place to Stay at Home until April 10 in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. We are committed to doing our part to help protect the health and safety of the community we serve and our employees, and we ask visitors at our parks to do the same.

Getting outside for exercise and fresh air is still encouraged. Our parks and trails remain open, but services will be limited. Please review these important updates and reminders for visiting a dog off-leash area.

social distancing

Keep 6 feet between yourself and others. Refrain from gathering near the entrance gates or picnic tables.

pack it out

Trash collection will be limited in the coming weeks. Please pick up after your dog and take waste (including poop bags) out with you. Dumpsters are available near the entrance of each off-leash area.

Make sure to grab all of your belongings (bowls, toys, etc) when you leave.

passes

Passes are required. Annual and day passes are currently available for purchase online only.

safety reminders

Maximum of 2 dogs per handler.

Please keep your dog on leash in the parking lot, including walking up to and leaving the off-leash area.

Once within the off-leash area, your dog should always be in your sight.

If another owner asks you to get your dog, immediately call your dog and move away from the other person and their dog, even if you feel your dog is being friendly.

If there are any incidents, call 911 and ask for Park Police.
