The first such facility owned and operated by the County, the project is a pilot project. The project covers an area of approximately 1.5 acres in the northwest portion of Crescenta Valley Community Regional Park. It has mature native oaks and sycamore trees.
The dog park features include a 0.5 acre small dog area and a 1 acre large dog area with separate double-gated entrances. Each area is completely fenced and has large areas of decomposed granite surfacing, as well as areas of cedar chip surfacing under and around the mature trees. Other features include: a dog wash outside the entry gates; drinking fountains for owners and pets; benches in both areas, some with shade structures; and security lighting
The project was triggered in 2007 by an incident by an incident in which a small dog was injured by other dogs at a nearby park where local residents let dogs run and play without a leash.
