Large Dog Park at San Elijo Hills Park Undergoing Renovations

The large dog park at San Elijo Hills Park, 1105 Elfin Forest Road, will be closed until approximately August 26 for turf repairs. The closure will allow the City to provide a better environment for pooches to play by installing new sod to repair a large portion of the park’s turf, which has deteriorated and exposed dirt and rocks. The new sod must be irrigated several times per day for approximately three weeks in order to establish roots and grow strong enough to handle foot (and paw) traffic.

We appreciate your patience during the repairs and hope that you will enjoy one of San Marcos’ additional dog parks, including Hollandia Park, Montiel Park, and Sunset Park.

San Marcos dog parks

THE PLACE: San Marcos dog parksSan Marcos is a family-friendly city, and may be the dog-friendliest in the county. There are three dog parks within San Marcos parks, all providing safe places for four-legged family members to run and play off-leash. A fourth is under construction.One of the dog parks is within San Elijo Park in San Elijo Hills, a planned development in southwest San Marcos. The 18-acre park, which opened in 2004, has lighted sports and multipurpose fields, a community center, water “sprayground” for children, picnic area and playground equipment. The off-leash area is in the center of the park, half for small dogs and half for larger dogs. READ MORE of Sign On San diego Post
