Orange County is For the Dogs

Orange County is known for big houses and small backyards, not leaving much room for the family pet to run out energy.  It’s not so bad, though, with off leash dog parks in many of the major cities.  The full list is here, but the following parks have been Daisy-tested and approved (my Boston terrier mix)!

Costa Mesa Bark Park (map)

2 acres of fenced in grass and dirt.  There is a big dog section and a small dog section with double gates at both entrances.  There is water provided for the dogs and waste clean up bags.  The park is open from dawn until dusk, daily except Tuesdays.  Close to the freeway, this one has easy access.

Owned by the City of Fullerton, this park has 3 separate gated areas – one for big dogs, one for small dogs, and a wood chip area open to all dogs.  All the entrances have double gates.  Water and waste clean up bags are provided.   The park is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily except Wednesdays.  The Fullerton park is nice because it has lights, so even in the winter you can take your dog to the park after work.

Huntington Central Park Dog Park (map)

1.5 acres of gated off leash area, with a separate area for big dogs and small dogs.  Water and waste clean up bags are provided.  The park is open weekdays from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.  With it’s close proximity to the dog beach, dog owners can choose where to take their dog offleash.
