Dog-friendly parks in Livermore

Important Message:

We are happy to announce that our dog parks are now OPEN based on a new health Order issued by the Alameda County Public Health Department effective July 19, 2020. The Health Order has listed several guidelines that ALL dog park visitors MUST follow if the park is to remain open for use:

  • Humans should maintain six (6) feet of physical distance from people and animals other than those from their same household, living unit or social bubble.
  • Common water facilities MAY NOT be used. You MUST bring water from home for yourself and your pet.
  • It is mandatory to wear a face covering at all times.
  • Avoid entering the park if you have a fever or cough, or are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Pet owners are urged to use on-leash dog parks or keep their dogs on a leash.  Pet owners who choose to let their dogs be off leash in an off-leash dog park should prevent their dogs from interacting with other people or animals to the greatest extent feasible.
  • People should bring their own bags for picking up and disposing pet waste.
  • For the health and safety of yourself and others, do not engage in hand shaking or any unnecessary physical contact while in the dog park.
  • Order No. 20-14b - Appendix C (Revised July 19, 2020) - Health and safety requirements pertaining to dog parks.

For the health and safety of yourself and others, please do not enter the park if you cannot adhere to these guidelines. Please embody a "pack-in, pack-out" mind set with your trash, and remember to bring your own "mutt mitt" and dispose of pet waste in appropriate receptacle to help us keep our outdoor spaces clean and safe. Thank you and stay healthy.
