Joaquin Miller Park

Oakland, CA 94602

The large and small dog parks total 1.25 acres in Joaquin Miller Park, a 500 acre park near Redwood Regional Park. It was originally home to the poet Joaquin Miller, who deeded these lands which he called "The Hights" to the city after his death in 1913.

The dog park is located amongst the redwood trees, and features night lighting until 8 p.m., and separate areas for large and small dogs. The small dog park is named Gizmoland, after a former Oakland Councilmember's dog.

Hours: sunrise to 8 p.m.
