Sutter Fort Landing Park

Marley and I attended the Grand Opening Celebration of the Sutter Fort Landing Park. It was very exciting and Marley had a great time being one of the first dogs to leave p-mail everywhere.

Councilman Cohn (light blue shirt) and the park designer (in baseball hat) discussed the creation of the park. This land was unusable property and a great effort was made to making it a dog park. Under the park is a land fill and therefore, all water must be drained off the property into the river. The park consists of decomposed granite and mulch instead of grass.

The ribbon cutting ceremony was fun.

This picture was taken at the gate of the small dog section facing northwest. This is the largest small dog park I have ever seen and there is plenty of parking next to the park.

I'm still standing at the gate of the small dog park facing west.

I'm still at the gate of the small dog park facing southwest. Notice the water fountain and the large dog park section. The entire park is about 3 acres, which makes this the largest dog park in the region.

Unfortunately this is the only shade in the park. However, the park is close to the river and there was a nice delta breeze. If you continue to the north there is access to the river.

Marley had a great time.

She enjoyed running around...

Making new friends...

Playing with a crazy puppy...

Finally, she enjoyed a refreshing drink from the new fountain.

Overall we had a wonderful time and would like to thank everybody involved in the creation of such a fun place to play.
