East Bay Area

East Bay Area

Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano Counties are collectively referred to as the East Bay. We add to that Tri-Valley and the cities of Oakland and Vacaville. Recreational opportunities with dogs find high expression in the East Bay Regional Park District, which includes 1,200 miles of trails in Contra Costa and Alameda counties.
East Bay
Solano County is filled with farms, wineries, wildlife areas and coastal trails, all dog-friendly and ready for you and your dog to explore together. The city of Vacaville has a pack of dog-friendly restaurants and lodging properties and the historic town of Benicia has been named one of the nation’s most accommodating dog-friendly towns.

Your most engaging option, however, might be the Nut Tree, a 72-acre, mixed-use development with retail space and 26 food and craft-beer options, many with dog-friendly outdoor seating. more »

Yes it’s primarily a bike path, but dog walkers will find much to enjoy along the shaded, 4.4-mile Alamo Creek Bikeway, which meanders through southern Vacaville and connects several municipal parks, including Nelson, Patwin and Beelard. Want to keep going? The trail intersects the Southside Bikeway connecting downtown Vacaville to the north and Al Patch Park (sports fields and restrooms!) to the south. more »

The story behind why the Tri-Valley region has more open space than urban sprawl is long and complex, but there’s no arguing with the results! All four towns in the region are situated in close proximity to parcels within the vast East Bay Regional Park system, where dogs can hike with their people off-leash in many open-space and undeveloped areas, provided they are under strict voice control at all times. more »
