Before taking your dog out, check the temperature. If it is, or has been, a hot day keep in mind that your friend is wearing a fur coat – and is closer to the radiant heat of the ground. Here are some suggestions for protecting your pet.
Palm Springs Dog Park
3200 E Tahquitz Canyon Way
Palm Springs, CA, US 92262
University Dog Park
74802 University Park Drive Palm Desert
University Dog Park is fenced with 2.5 acres benches, shade, picnic pavilions, and separate areas for large and small dogs.
Cahuilla Hills Park, Palm Desert
45825 Edgehill Drive, Palm Desert
Cahuilla Hills Park is nearly 26 acres of undeveloped open space that serves as the trailhead for the Cahuilla Hills Trails System. There are off-leash exercise in the designated area of this public park, though be careful as the area is not fully fenced.
The hike requires a leash – be sure to bring water and be careful about hot days and your dogs feet. On the other side of the one hour hike ends at another off leash area at Homme Adams Park.
Civic Center Dog Park, Palm Desert
43900 San Pablo Ave., Palm Desert
Civic Center Dog Park is probably one of the best in the Palm Springs area. 3/4 acre, fenced, picnic tables and areas for small dogs, separate from big dogs.
