Laguna Beach Dog Park

20672 Laguna Canyon Road
Laguna Beach, CA 92651

The Laguna Beach Dog Park is over two acres of grassy expanse tucked between the hills of the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park and the Aliso/Wood Canyons Regional Wilderness Park in Laguna Beach, California. Each week, hundreds of dogs and their owners visit this beautiful park, where leashes come off and dogs run free. The Dog Park is owned, operated and maintained by the City of Laguna Beach.

Established on October 17, 1992 the Laguna Beach Dog park was the first dog park in Orange County  and one of the few in Southern California at that time. The creation of the park was developed by Laguna Beach officials including Joy Falk, our current Laguna Beach Senior Animal Control Officer, GTE Telephone Operations, who at the time owned the land, and RUFF (Rescuing Unwanted Furry Friends), as well as a volunteer group that works with the city animal shelter. There was an overwhelming recognition that our community needed a safe, dedicated open space where dogs could run free. Subsequently, the City bought the land from Verizon, and assumed maintenance of the park. RUFF is still doing excellent work in our community, and we gratefully acknowledge their role in the founding of the Dog Park as well as the extensive research and assistance that Joy Falk continues to provide to make our park even better!


 - The Dog Park is open Dawn to Dusk, Thursdays through Tuesdays.

 - The Dog Park is closed on Wednesdays for maintenance.
