Point Isabel Regional Shoreline Off-Leash Dog Park - Richmond
About The Park
There are beautiful views of the Golden Gate and Marin County from this landscaped 23-acre park at the west end of Central Avenue in Richmond. This is the largest public off-leash dog park in the nation with over 500,000 dog visits per year.
A favorite with park visitors is Mudpuppy's Tub & Scrub, a dog washing and dog-specific retail shop facility. There are full service and do-it-yourself dog baths, plus great toys, treats, and supplies. The Sit & Stay Cafe is located next door to Mudpuppy's and features treats for your dog's best friend, including Gourmet espresso drinks, coffee, pastries, sandwiches, smoothies, soups, cookies, ice cream, and their famous Road House Chili. Call (510) 559-8899 or for more information on these facilities, or see www.mudpuppys.com.
The park provides rich birdwatching opportunities, particularly in the fall and winter when the year-round "residents" are joined by migrating field and shorebirds. Other attractions include bay fishing, jogging and running trails, bike riding, kite flying, and picnicking.
A State fishing license is required to fish from the shore. Fishers may try for striped bass, various surf perch, jacksmelt, sturgeon, leopard shark, and flounder.
Dogs may be off-leash at Point Isabel, although owners must have a leash with them (six-foot maximum) and have their dog under voice control and within sight at all times. Animals showing aggressive behavior toward people or other animals should be leashed immediately. Please prevent dogs from digging or damaging park resources, and please place your animal's waste in a trash can. Dogs must be on leash in parking lots and streets.
To Reach The Park
From I-580 or I-80 (the Eastshore Freeway) in Richmond, take Central Avenue west to Isabel Street or Rydin Road, turn right to get to Point Isabel parking lots, adjacent to Costco and the U.S. Postal Service Bulk Mail Center.
