Dog-friendly King Estate Open Space Park

King Estate Open Space Park

Oakland, California 94605
Visit Website

King Estate Open Space Park was established so that all residents of Oakland could enjoy the natural beauty, native habitat and wonderful views.

Fire roads were cut into the park decades ago and serve as a trail system. The old Crest roadbed serves as an all-weather trail.

Dogs are permitted off-leash, under strict voice control. Please be aware that this park is used by many visitors who are there to enjoy the natural beauty and may not want to interact with your pets. 

• Please carry a 6' leash and dog waste bags.
• Please keep your dog on leash while in the surrounding residential neighborhoods.
• Please pick up your dog's waste and deposit it in the trash cans at the Crest or Greenly gates.
• If you encounter a park visitor not accompanied by a dog, please control your dog.
• If you encounter a park visitor with a dog on leash, please control your dog.
• The western trail is on very steep terrain. Please use care and control your dog when passing others on the trail.
• Please do not let your dog chase or harass park wildlife.

A significant amount of the park is not fenced and none of it is gated. Your dog's safety will be at risk if it leaves the park boundaries.

Street parking is available in the surrounding neighborhoods. Please do not block driveways and please do not block the fire gates; it is illegal and you may receive a parking citation and your vehicle may be towed.

Jack London Square
Summer days are great for long, lingering meals on the tail end of an outing with your pet. Lake Merritt, the large tidal lagoon in the center of town, is one of Oakland’s most popular jogging and dog-walking venues and a great place to go for a leg-stretch. Linger over an upscale lunch or dinner at Lake Chalet Seafood Bar, a special-occasion venue; or indulge in Italian comfort food at Barlago Italian Kitchen, where heated outdoor tables take the chill off the often brisk marine air. Tuesday-Friday happy hours feature discounted draft beers, wine and antipasti specials. more »

Dog-loving residents of Oakland have it all: tons of bars and restaurants with dog-friendly outdoor seating; an overall welcoming attitude toward canines; and a wealth of open-space trails, many of which don’t require leashes away from developed areas. The city also has a hip, dog-friendly place to stay in the Waterfront Hotel in the heart of the vibrant Jack London Square dining, shopping and entertainment district. more »
