Thursday, July 23: Standley Park Community Recreation Group meets at 7 PM via Zoom; all are welcome

Update 07/23/2020: Establishing a new Dog Off-Leash Area (DOLA) at an area park: Based on information received from San Diego Parks and Recreation staff at, proposals for a DOLA must be initiated by an organized advocacy group with the resources to see the project through the community input process as well as fund improvements necessary for constructing the DOLA.

Please note the Parks and Recreation Department does not fund or install/construct DOLAs; that is the responsibility of the advocacy group. Furthermore, costs for a DOLA can vary depending on the size of the project, scope of the work, Americans with Disabilities Act improvements required, modifications to existing infrastructure required (drainage, irrigation systems, etc.).

Guidelines were updated in 2018 and specify that an off-leash area should be approximately 3 acres in size to allow for 3 pens to be established, one for small dogs, one for larger dogs and one that can be rotated to allow one of the other pens to recover from the damage caused by off-leash activities.

For Humane Society Law Enforcement, call
619-299-7012 to speak with dispatch.
