The Bark Park
Behind the Sacramento County Animal Care Center is probably one of the best dog parks around.

They have large separate areas for big/small, water fountains and require that all dogs wear their tags and are spayed and neutered.

Just remember when you’re heading out to one of your local dog parks you need to keep your dog leashed until you are in the actual off-leash area. Make sure to follow all the rules and re-leash your dog before exiting the park. Also, take note if there is a separate entrance and exit at the park as it makes coming and going much safer and easier for all. Most of all have fun watching your dog romp and play in the warm grass and shining sun!
