Heilmann Dog Park

About Us

In 2003 a dedicated group of dog lovers from Atascadero, Templeton and Paso Robles joined forces with the idea of establishing a dog park in north San Luis Obispo County.

After a great deal of effort, we entered into an agreement with San Luis Obispo County which allowed us to adopt a two-thirds of an acre section of land at Heilmann Park in Atascadero.

Fundraising began in earnest and ground for the park was broken in early 2005. The services of the California Conservation Corps were enlisted to dig holes and build the fence. The park officially opened in April 2005.

Our park features two double gated entries, one on the north side and one on the west side. We also have a shade structure,  water, picnic tables, shady oaks, a patio, a doggie spa and an information kiosk built for us by Eagle Scout Jayk Thorne and his dad as his community project.
