Fort Bragg Dog Park Re-Opens!
[posted by Carly Wells on May 18th, 2015]


The Fort Bragg Dog Park was closed for maintenance since the middle of April, but re-opened on May 15th.


The dog park is popular among local and visiting dog lovers and their four-footed friends. The heavy use of the park requires periodic maintenance closures to aerate, add soil amendments and selectively re-seed areas to allow the turf to remain healthy. These maintenance activities and “resting” of the turf must be completed periodically to maintain turf that can withstand heavy use. While these periodic closures are recognized as inconvenient, they are necessary to maintain the park and turf grass in good condition. To the extent possible, these maintenance closures are scheduled as infrequently as possible to allow for maximum use of the park.


The dog park is located next to the C. V. Starr Community Center (300 S. Lincoln St., Fort Bragg). The dog park is owned by the City of Fort Bragg and managed by the Mendocino Coast Recreation and Park District.
