Grove-Shafter Park

36th Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr Street
Oakland, CA 94609

Grove-Shafter is a 20,000 square foot dog area in West Oakland, with separate spots for large and small dogs.

At the "leash cutting" ceremony for this park in early 2011, City Council member Jane Brunner said, "When you have dogs at a park, it makes it safer, they love it. And, so far, the community has gotten active. It really is a great thing."
