• Small Dogs Just Wanna Have Fun!
The new reserved time for small dogs at Happy Tails Dog Park is fun to watch. Have you brought your little guy or gal to join the party? Small dog hours, for dogs less than 25 lbs., are now observed weekly 3-4 pm. every Sunday and every Wednesday. It is requested that large breed dog owners observe the 2 hour windows per week, reserved for small dogs. Small dog owners see this as a safety issue so please respect their concerns; especially since the Dog Park is open all other hours of the day, all days of the week for everyone. The park is the only public place in Oakmont where your pup can run leash free and is Open Sunrise to Sunset, for all Oakmont residents to enjoy.
