Apple Valley Dog Park Closed to 2 Months for Turf Maintenance

APPLE VALLEY – In order for the Town of Apple Valley to maintain the turf at the Apple Valley Dog Park, the dog park will be closed temporarily. The closure of the popular dog park, which was the first off-leash play area for dogs in the High Desert, will begin on Friday, April 28, 2017, and will remain closed for two months.

Town officials attempted to do two partial closures, with the large and small dogs sharing half of the park at alternating times. Both sides of the park share the same irrigation system, which makes it impossible to automatically water each side individually. The closure will allow for automatic watering and the establishment of the turf.

“We know that this may be an inconvenience to the many patrons who enjoy this park daily, but ultimately this will improve the park as a whole in a more timely manner,” said Parks and Recreation Manager Ralph Wright.

Dogs on leashes remain welcome at all parks in the Town of Apple Valley. For more information on any Apple Valley parks, please call (760) 240-7880, or visit
