    Not a dog park!

    Do not take your dog here. Its not offleash. Filled with foxtails that are dangerous for dogs. If your dog is reactive to squirrels this place will be a nightmare.

    Not off leash

    I love this park it’s setting is beautiful, next to Alum Rock. It also has a small lake which is pretty! Just a few pointers: There are a lot of geese so if your dog is obsessed with geese poo it can be a challenge! Also it’s not the off leash dog park - the nearest is Watson Park (I never go there as it is a mass of dirt/mud and I have a white dog)

    Location info a little off, it is at Watson Park a San Jose city park, Mabury/Taylor streets. Not well kept up by city, we stopped going there.
