Willow Oaks dog park is open

Willow Oaks Dog Park

Willow Oaks Dog Park is open.  It has been a long haul.  According to the city of Menlo Park, the process of seeding and re-establishing turf normally takes about 8 weeks. Due to the unusually cold temperatures in November and December, the first batch of grass seed did not germinate well so a second application was required. With the heavy rain over the weekend they left the park closed so it could dry out to prevent deterioration of the new grass.

It is great that it is open but it doesn’t seem ready.  The grass is patchy and muddy.  It seems like it could use even more time to dry out.  I will probably wait at least a week before going back.  Bucky was covered with mud after our adventure. Willow Oaks is open from 7 am – 9 am & 4 pm – Dusk.  Parking is a challenge due to soccer games and other park activities.  Although Willow Oaks is located on Willow Road & Coleman Avenue, I suggest parking on Gilbert and walking down the paved path to the park. There are three dog friendly condos on the market right now that are walking distance to Willow Oaks. To search for property near Willow Oaks dog park, go to the Search Property Near Dog Parks guide at www.peninsulahousehound.com.  You will see all of the property on the market near the dog park.  Living near a dog park is a major quality of life issue.  Most of the people at Willow Oaks today walked to the park.  They said they are so grateful that the park has reopened because they didn’t know what to do with their dogs while it was closed.  It makes a dog owner’s life easier having a local dog park.
