Dog on Leash

Thursday, December 19, 2019

In accordance with the County's updated dog ordinance, San Mateo County Parks and the Dog Work Group have significantly expanded recreational opportunities for dogs and their owners by allowing dogs on leash and on trail at several new park locations. The full list of locations available to you and your dogs is now as follows:

When visiting these locations with your dog, please be sure to:

  • Always keep dogs on leash
  • Scoop the poop
  • No more than 3 dogs per person
  • Keep leash 6 feet or less when near others
  • Keep dogs out of playgrounds and other undesignated areas
  • Leave wildlife and vegetation undisturbed

While increased dog access is being piloted at San Mateo County Parks, our park rangers will focus on educating park visitors on the new ordinance and may issue citations with fees for non-compliance.
