Linda off-leash dog area temporarily closed due to wet weather

City of Piedmont

The hillside in the Linda off-leash dog park after recent rain.

The Linda off-leash dog area is temporarily closed due to hazardous conditions.

Rains have caused slippery conditions, soil erosion, and unstable walking surfaces. The saturated hillside is unsafe for both dogs and pedestrians.

Off-leash dog areas remain open at:
• Blair Park: Moraga Avenue between Coaches Field and Maxwelton Road
• Dracena Park: entrances at the end of Artuna Avenue and 130 Dracena Avenue
• Piedmont Park: entrances at 711 Highland Avenue and 305 Wildwood Avenue

Public Works staff is regularly monitoring site conditions to determine when the Linda off-leash dog area may safely re-open.

It is likely that this space will need to temporarily close after most, if not all, future rain events.

  1. Sadly, the Linda dog park is the only Piedmont dog park that is fenced. At the other two dog parks a dog may just wander off anywhere, and particularly into a busy street.
