Mission Viejo Dog Park

Dog Parks offer an excellent recreational place for bonding with your dog. As a pet owner, it would be sad to keep your pet inside your house. Dogs, just like humans, need to indulge in activities so that they won’t feel bored. This is one reason why our pets need to go out and have a fun run or walk with you, of course!

Mission Viejo’s La Paws Dog Park is open to the public, especially to your beloved furry friends. You can find this lovely Park at 25100 Felipe Road, south of Gilleran Park. This 6-acre dog park has a 3-acre slope and 3 acres of grass area where dogs can run and play with other dogs. Also, ample parking space is available to all park users.

Park Features

The Park is made of artificial turf which is specifically designed to create a minimal impact on the environment. Also, it’s made to suit for dogs so they can enjoy the Park in its fullest.

La Paws Dog Park has three dog play areas. The largest area is 1.5-acre wide, and the smallest area is about 0.1 acres, which is dedicated to single owner use. Its third area is 0.5 acres. There’s ample parking with 40 car parking spaces. You can also find a plaza for special events and a walking trail.
