Livermore is a mecca for dog parks, according to a report just released from the Livermore Area Recreation and Park District. Tri-Valley’s newspaper, the Independent
, reported that when most cities have one to three dog parks; Livermore boasts a whopping SEVEN dog parks for you and your pup to frolic off-leash.
If seven dog parks aren’t enough, dogs are also allowed on leash at Sycamore Grove Park and Holdener Park.
Livermore dog parks range in size from one-third of an acre to 4.2 acres. The Independent also reports that plans are underway to provide additional benches, shaded areas, and obstacle apparatus. In the works are special events for dogs.
The first park was built at Max Baer Park with the assistance of veterinarian Martin Plone and the Del Valle Dog Club. The newest, Cayetano Park south of Las Positas College, is set to officially open in February.
