226. Dogbone Meadow

Novato’s Dogbone Meadow is a wonderful dog park that is big, clean, well-maintained and enclosed, plus has dog exercise/play stations around the perimeter of the big grassy lawn. The play stations are called “BarkPark” and look to me like they’re kind of a cross between an equestrian steeple chase course and a human parcourse.

The BarkPark has seven stations with equipment that can be used to give a wider variety of play activities or as teaching aids.  There are several that are climbing structures, a couple that aid in teaching jumping, another for crawling and a couple to teach obedience. I have to admit that not many people seem to use them, but rather spend their time throwing balls to their dog or sitting on benches reading while their dogs roam and romp with other dogs.

If you want to get more involved with this facility and the folks and dogs who use it, there are two upcoming events (at right).

Where: On Novato Boulevard, 1/4 mile west of Sutro and San Marin Avenues, Novato CA 94947 (map)
