Dog park

A woman holds her dog during an event at the dog park located in northern Fontana in 2017.  The City of Fontana is now developing a new dog park in the southern end of the city.

The City of Fontana is in the process of developing a Fontana Dog Park to be located in the Southridge Village Specific Plan and is inviting community comments regarding the project during the Fontana Parks, Community and Human Services Commission Workshop meeting on Thursday, June 24 at 6 p.m.

The public can share comments to the commission by either attending remotely via registering to comment at live.Fontana.org/RegisterParks or attending in person at the Grover W. Taylor Council Chambers, 8353 Sierra Avenue.

Features of the proposed dog park:

• 0.46 acres, West Dog Park (9,457 square feet) and the East Dog Park (9,685 square feet)

• Covered with bark mulch and separated by a tubular steel fence that would also enclose the entire site

• Features include two drinking fountains with pet bowls, pet waste stations, and bench seating

• New landscape buffer along the south, west, and north sides

• Three new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) parking stalls

• New sidewalk along the west and north sides of the site adjacent to Live Oak Avenue.

There is already a dog park in the northern area of the city near the Jessie Turner Center, and the City Council recently announced that funding will be available for the new dog park in the southern area.
