Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park’s off-leash area includes everything an adventurous pooch will need to be happy on an outing: winding dirt trails, natural vegetation, a creek to splash around in, and plenty of other dogs and humans to wag their tails at. The extensive trail system stretches across 200+ wooded acres of public land, so your pup will have plenty of space to explore and let his or her instincts loose.
