Pet Friendly Red Bug Slough Reserve
Red Bug Slough Reserve Lots of shaded trails and interesting smells for the dogs! My dogs loved it there. Great to see a city preserve natural beauty and not build condos etc on it. Big pond/lake in the middle of it so the dogs could go in and cool down. Didn't see any dog water fountains but there were poop bags at the entrance off Beneva Rd and lots of trash cans throughout.
