Mission Viejo CA will build a dog park to benefit community

The City Council on Monday moved forward with plans to build a dog park at Oso Viejo Park north of the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center near the Village Green.

The council approved $258,060 for construction of the dog park. The move follows in-depth public input and study by a committee made up of residents, City commissioners and recreation and animal services staff.

A dog park in Mission Viejo has been a longtime in the making, dating back six years to when the concept was first discussed by the Planning and Transportation Commission. In June 2006, a council-directed dog park committee was developed to seek possible locations in town. The 14-member committee identified 12 possible locations to study and hosted two public input meetings in October and November 2007. The potential sites were studied for design criteria and other factors. In January 2008, the Community Services Commission recommended the Oso Viejo Park location as the preferred site. The City Council considered the dog park concept in two budget meetings in 2007 and in June of this year.

The City has long made capital improvement projects a priority to benefit the community. Since the dog park was first discussed in 2003, the City has finished 63 capital improvement projects. Twenty-three of those projects were recreation related with the remainder consisting of street/roadway improvements, resurfacing and pavement rehabilitation. The recreation capital improvement projects include eight park playground renovations, 10 facility renovation/expansion projects, four park lighting and one open space trail improvement.

Mission Viejo joins other South County cities such as Laguna Niguel, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods, Rancho Santa Margarita and San Clemente in offering dog parks for community enjoyment.

Not sure what the one in Mission Viejo will look like, but here are a few fun examples…

Del Mar’s Dog Beach


Dogs on-leash only until after Labor Day

Watercolor of Dog Beach

Ask anyone in Southern California where Dog Beach is, and those who have dogs will know exactly where it is: At the border of the south end of Solana Beach and the north end of Del Mar, or North Beach. During certain times of the year (Day after Labor Day, September 6th through June 14th), dogs are allowed to run free off-leash, and it’s quite a spectacle on the weekends.

There is a natural boundary at the south end of dog beach – the San Dieguito Rivermouth flows into the sea and usually it is anywhere from 25 to 50 feet across, depending on the season and rainfall, so its fairly easy for the City to contain the dogs.

There aren’t too many places in Southern California where your dog can frolic at the beach with other dogs, so this is particularly a great place to take your dog for a “date”.
