Our dogs are part of our families. We are responsible for caring for them. This means they need a place to run and play and just enjoy some sunshine and exercise. There are 5 off-leash dog-parks in Fresno. We will give you the lowdown on each. We are sure you will find one that suits your furry friend’s needs.
This should go without saying, but unfortunately, we must say it. It is your responsibility to clean up after your dog. A lot of people and dogs use these parks. Please clean up after your dog and abide by the rules. There are very few of them.
