Dog Park Rules

Things you can do to be safe in a park:

  • Be aware of your surroundings - be vigilant and aware of where you are and who is around you.
  • Call 911 in an emergency.
  • To report non-emergency concerns or issues
    • Call (707)543-3770 Monday-Friday (9 AM-4 PM)
    • Call (707)543-3805 for nights, weekends, and holidays
  • Do NOT leave anything visible or valuable in your car, not even in your trunk.
  • Closely supervise your children as they play in the park.
  • Only use park equipment and/or facilities for their intended purpose.
  • On hot days, drink plenty of water.

Walking, Jogging, and Biking:

  • On the path - project confidence and strength.
  • Do not wear headphones; they impair your senses, especially persons approaching from behind.  Being able to hear makes you more aware of your surroundings.
  • Pedestrians should walk or jog facing oncoming traffic.
  • Go with a friend.
  • Let someone know when you begin your walk or jog.  Tell them the route you will be taking and when you plan to return.  Inform them when you do return.
  • Wear proper safety equipment, bright clothing, helmet when biking, proper footwear.

Trust your instincts!  If it does not seem right, request help from others or report emergencies by calling 911.
