Paso Nogal Park and open space has eight entrances. Paso Nogal Road serves as the main gateway. Kiki Lane, Boies Drive, Gail Drive, Odin Drive, Morello Avenue, and Paso Nogal Court are among the others. Taylor Boulevard to the south, Morello Avenue to the east, and Paso Nogal Road to the north define the park and open space area. This park is designated as open space and has a 2.5-acre fenced dog exercise park, small picnic areas, and 63 acres of scenic hiking trails. When outside of the fenced-in off-leash dog park area, dogs must be on a leash all the time. The open space hiking trails are included in this policy. Others on the trails may or may not like a polite greeting from your canine companion. All will admire our open spaces. Please remember to keep your dog leashed at all times. 

A stunning hiking trail can be found in the area and the view is really nice. The place is so easy to navigate. You should take a seat on one of the carefully positioned benches and take it all in. The neighborhood is well-kept. In recent months, it has undergone several updates. Six foot fence has essentially replaced the split rail fencing. The small dog park has been increased in size. On both sides of the park, there are now benches for both big and small dogs, as well as a place to wash a dog if appropriate.

Some rules to remember when going to Paso Nogal Park:

  • Dogs must be at least 6 months old, vaccinations are current, and free of contagious diseases. On their collars, dogs must wear current identification tags.
  • Owners and trainers must tidy up after their pets. Doggie bags are issued as a part of membership fees.
  • Both dog owners and trainers who use the area must have a leash on each of their dogs.
  • Digging by dogs is harmful to the grass and a threat to other people, so owners/handlers must discourage their dogs from doing so.
  • Dogs who are in heat are not allowed in the park.
  • The maximum number of dogs allowed per owner/handler is four.
  • Dogs can use one of two fenced-in Off Leash Training Areas: one for dogs under 25 pounds and the other for bigger dogs.

Simply put, Paso Nogal is a beautiful outdoor space for people and dogs to enjoy.
