Important Message:

March 31, 2020- Due to the new and updated Order issued by the Alameda County Public Health Officer, Livermore Area Recreation and Park District has CLOSED all dog parks until further notice. Parks and open spaces remain open providing community members access to nature, fresh air, sunshine, and enough room for dogs to move around in and have fun while practicing social and physical distancing by staying a healthy distance (six feet or more) from others. You may experience reduced service levels due to employee restrictions based on the public health order so please embody a "pack-in, pack-out" mind set to help us keep our outdoor spaces clean and safe. It would also be helpful if you could bring your own "mutt mitt" during this time.Thank you and stay healthy.

The Livermore Area Recreation and Park District has seven (7) dog parks throughout Livermore. Each dog park offers a unique design within an enclosed fenced setting to allow maximum play and run off leash. Our dog parks are open from sunrise to sunset; for the enjoyment and safety of all dog park users, please read and familiarize yourself with our Dog Park Rules.
