    Nice Park

    My dogs and I were on Vacation in the area and we needed a place for them to run around. I found the local dogs to be friendly and well supervised by their owners. The people were also friendly and helpful and shared information about other local spots. We got there early enough to see two volunteers cleaning the park and making sure that it was safe and comfortable. It was a lovely experience.

    I used to love bring my dog here, but found bits and pieces of glass scattered through the large dog park side. I was informed that they get free wood chips and it's always filled with trash which has to be picked out while volunteers are spreading the chips around. Instead of addressing this serious problem, the dog park board refuses to admit that the free wood chips are dangerous and I've heard the president of the dog board berated a dog owner because they complained. I don't get why the small dog park has soft grass for their dogs and the large dogs get trash filled wood chips. If they provided grass (and there is grass that can withstand the wear and tear of large dogs), then it would be a positive step in making this place a safe place to bring my dog. In addition, the dog park is surrounded by poisonous plants which are easily accessible to the dogs and there is one dying tree that all the dogs clammer to for 'shade'. It's apparent that the dog park board has no love for the large dogs since the discrepancy between the large and small dogs is vast. I would appreciate if they took care of the large dogs like they do the small dogs.

    If anyone is a member at that park, I would highly recommend you remove your name from their membership till they take the safety of our dogs seriously.

    I gave this park a 5 star review when my dog was a puppy and was playing in the small dog area, where there was soft grass for her paws. Now she is 7 pounds over the weight limit for small dogs and she is in the large dog area, filled with wood chips. These wood chips are free, and because they are, they are filled with trash, including glass shards and metal shards, which gets spread through the whole park, I know this to be true since I've helped spread the wood chips when they are brought in. Despite my concerns, the dog park committee continues to use the free wood chips. I don't take my dog there anymore for her safety. I would NOT recommend this park for large dogs, but for small dogs, it's great (except that some of the owners are extremely rude on that side).

    great park for all sized dogs

    This park has the double gates for entry, and a grass area for the smaller dogs to play. The larger dogs have a large run to accommodate long fetch throws. Overall it is well maintained and the people there are very nice.

    Great Park

    Good dogs and good people. Took our dog every day while staying in Pismo Beach. "Fido" was a very happy dog between this park and the beach. Great park, indeed!

    A lifesaver

    This is a nicely-run park that is a lifesaver for our dogs when we're in the area, as my lady Basset does not like to do her business on a leash. It's well-maintained with water, baggies, scoops, etc.

    Great place for dogs

    Has 2 fenced in yards, one for smaller dogs (grassed area) and a larger one for dogs over 25 pounds (wooden chips). For the most part, the dogs are very social and if someone brings in a dog that isn't, the locals have no problem either talking to the owner or taking their dogs home. You can't really control if someone brings in an aggressive dog, but it's usually addressed by others. I bring my puppy here almost every day, I've never seen her in harms way and she always has fun there. They take care of the park daily, provide water and poop bags.
    I highly recommend this park for dogs.

    Great Dog Park!

    We're visiting this area and brought our Doberman to this dog park. He had a great time! There's shade, benches, water, an area for large and small dogs. A very nice park!

    You never know

    Some days my dog has loved the park and all the owners have been responsible and the dogs are behaved.....however there have been days when people bring their aggressive dogs and they dont take responsibility for them. Beware!
