East Bay Regional Parks Dog Access Policies down/dogs.htm

Dogs are permitted in most of the East Bay Regional Parks, and off leash walking is permitted in a large percentage of those. Most are not dog parks. By that I mean that dogs are permitted off leash but must maintain company manners - running up to strangers is rude, even if it is intended to be friendly. Other park users should be able to enjoy the park as if your dog were not even present. Making the park uncomfortable for other users is a sure route to getting dogs banned. The exception is Point Isabel which operates more like a dog park.
