6th Ave. Dog Park
I didn't realize that dog parks were something that some other towns didn't have until recently. We took our dog on a trip. At our destination (a small-ish town in central California), I asked local dog walkers where dog park was. I was met with strange looks, confusion, and crinkled noses.
For those of you doing the same, a dog park is where they've fenced off a portion of a park, so you can let your dog run free & socialize with other dogs.
In San Diego, dog parks are very common. It seems each area has their own, and dog owners frequent different ones for different reasons (this one is more hilly, that one is bigger or smaller, or close to the beach, etc.). We're a pretty dog friendly town!
