Community Education Event On Dog Ordinance –

On Saturday, March 7, 2015 Oakland Parks & Recreation (OPR) will host a community education event at King Estate Park for the public to learn about the Oakland Dog Ordinance, adopted by City Council on April 1, 2014. The free event will run from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. King Estate Park is located between Sterling Avenue and Crest Avenue.

Dogs are now allowed to visit and enjoy designated OPR parks when accompanied by a responsible caretaker.

This introduction to dog allowances within the community also incorporates information on how to preserve the park, park clean up days and the rules and regulations specified in the ordinance change. Community organizations such as Oak Knoll Neighborhood Association, King Estate Open Space, OPIE Dog and Oakland Dog Owners Group will be present. Dog owners who bring their dog with them are asked to bring a six-inch leash and dog waste bag.
