The City of Davis requires all dogs to be on a leash except when on private property or when the dog is in a designated off-leash area. Several Davis parks and greenbelts have exercise areas where your dog can be off leash if it remains under your control. These areas are marked by signs and can be found in the following areas:
Unfenced off-leash areas:
Aspen Greenbelt (south of Glacier Drive at the east end of Isle Royale Lane)
John Barovetto Park, 4400 Alhambra Drive (southeast area of the park)
Pioneer Park, 5035 Hamel Street (northeast of the playground)
Slide Hill Park, 1525 Tulip Lane (south end of the park)
Sycamore Park, 1313 Sycamore Lane (southwest of the playground)
Walnut Park, 2700 Lillard Drive (east of the tennis courts)
Fenced off-leash areas:
Community Park, 1405 F Street (west of the Skate Park)
Toad Hollow Dog Park, 1919 Second Street
Please Note: The dog park is closed for maintenance on Thursday mornings from 6:00 to 10:00 a.m. During the winter months, Toad Hollow Dog Park is frequently closed prior to, during, and following heavy rain periods as this location also serves as a storm detention pond. During the temporary closures, signage will be posted at the site to inform the public. The dog park will be re-opened once the field has dried and is suitable for use. You can sign up to receive an email about the status of Toad Hollow Dog Park.
Friendly Reminders to all Dog Owners:
Scoop the Poop! – Pet waste left on the ground is more than smelly and unsightly . . . it pollutes our water and poses a health risk for pets and people, especially children. Please make sure to clean up after your pet and properly dispose of it in a plastic bag in a garbage receptacle.
Dogs are not allowed in children's play areas of City parks and greenbelts unless they are a designated service animal.
