Explorer Dog!


Offleash Areas: Westcrest Park

People rating:
Dog rating:

Description: Redesigned in 2002, Westcrest has a large field for ball-loving dogs, and a covered shelter for dog owners (see photo). A maintenance road around part of the perimeter provides a short path that loops around to the Cloverdale entrance, where there is a water faucet. Droopy particularly enjoyed the fact that he could go on-leash around the trails in the rest of Westcrest, being the hiking explorer dog that he is.
