Craig Ranch Regional Dog Park is located inside of the spacious Craig Ranch Regional Park. You can access the dog park via the main gate off of Craig Road, or drive around back of the park by going down Lone Mountain. The dog park is all the way in the rear end of the park, near the intersection of Camino El Norte and Lone Mountain. There is parking available.
There are two separate dog runs, one for small dogs and one for big dogs. They are both quite spacious and grassy with a lot of trees for shade.
The whole park is dog friendly, just make sure to keep Fido on a leash when outside of the dog park.
Overall pretty good experiences. From time to time, negligent pet owners arrive and I've seen and had a couple of unfortunate incidents - fortunately nothing requiring a trip to the vet. Spacious. Biggest complaint is the poorly draining fountain on one side and the huge puddle that ALWAYS surrounds said fountain. Lots of pet owners don't believe in picking up poop, apparently - bothers me also. A few of us will pick up what isn't ours just to make for a better environment. Have made some nice friends for my dog and myself - convenient location and nice walking paths for when the off-leash isn't your thing.
Its not the best in the valley but its a great park. The regulars are all nice. 1 small dog area, and 2 large dog runs. The large dog runs do have a problem with mud, the only thing keeping it from 5 stars.
The small/medium dog area is separate from the large dog area. The small dog area has a parking lot directly in front of it, which is important to me as I have a 13-yr old fur-baby that can not walk long distances. The grass was short and the ground was even. The park was clean. The only down side was there was NO shade in the little dog area ( there are some very young trees in the area..which pretty much counts as no shade). I noticed the large dog area had a lot of really nice big shady trees.
