Dog Parks & Off-Leash Areas
We love dogs and have an established off-leash play area for them at Shoreline Park. There are 2 play areas; 1 for large and another for small dogs at that site.  These large areas (3 acres) have been very popular, and a great amenity.

In late 2009, numerous community members requested that off-leash opportunities be provided at other parks as well. In response, the Parks and Recreation Commission approved a pilot off-leash dog program adding 4 new areas which began in March 2010.

The new program was very successful and in April 2011, all 4 new sites became established off-leash areas that the public can enjoy.
