Five Ways to Enjoy Sacramento with your Dog

Sacramento’s moderate climate is perfect for a fun-filled day with the family – including the family dog. We’ve put together a list of five ways to enjoy California’s capital city with your dog.

1. Take your four-legged friend to a Sacramento dog park

Is your dog’s pent-up energy distracting you from other pursuits? Dogs can run it off at any of nine fenced dog parks in the Sacramento area. The two closest to Downtown Sacramento are Sutter’s Landing Dog Park at 20 28thSt. and Partner Park on Land Park Drive at Fruitridge Road. Remember to bring your own pickup bags.

2. Walk ’n’ wag in the jewel of the valley

Sacramento’s leafy parks beg exploring with your best friend. The jewel in the crown is the American River Parkway, a greenbelt and 32-mile paved multiuse trail with many access points between the Old Sacramento historic district on one end and Old Town Folsom on the other. You could also paw your way over to William Land Park, a 166-acre preserve about a mile south of Downtown Sacramento. Capitol Park around the State Capitol at 10th and Capitol Mall is dog-friendly, as is local favorite McKinley Park, at 3330 McKinley Blvd.
