Linda off-leash dog area temporarily closed again starting Feb. 24

City of Piedmont

The dog park hillside furrowed by running water after a hard rain.

The city says it has temporarily closed the Linda off-leash dog park again due to dangerous conditions. This week’s rains have made the hillside extremely slippery and unsafe for both people and dogs.

The city had just re-opened the dog area earlier this week, on Monday, Feb. 20, following a months-long closure due to hazardous conditions and significant mitigation work by public works staff.

The city will re-open the dog area as soon as it is possible to do so safely. Community members should prepare for future temporary closures following rain events.

The City appreciates the importance of this space to dog owners in the community. Public Works staff are actively exploring medium and long term mitigation options to ensure the continued viability of off-leash dog space in this area.
