Dog Day Afternoons at Mill Valley Dog Park

September 16, 2008 by  

Rain or shine, the Mill Valley Dog Park is busy with dogs and owners conducting business. The dogs, well, they do their thing. And the owners chat, talk on the phone, fling tennis balls, and generally enjoy the outdoor time with their pets. 

The Mill Valley Dog Park is run by the City of Mill Valley Parks and Recreation Department and volunteers. It gets used every day of the year, including holidays, even when other parks are closed. From dawn to dark, being the only ones there is rare. Peak summer usage times are:7 to 9 AM, 11 AM to 1 PM  and 3:30 to 7 PM.

Lots of good stuff here:
  • There is a beach for swimming in Richardson Bay. The center 40 feet of the beach bottom is filled with small/medium rocks and is very firm, with little mud.  Keep in mind that the Bay is tidal and brackish.  
  • A wide, 1000-foot, walking track winds the dog park.  
  • Agility stations are located at the southern end of the park.
  • 2 acres of space to roam–there are water bowls near most benches and a lost and found box near the entry to the park.
