No account ability of the money collected

They need to fire the person who runs the park now. He is a old man who does not do his job, and his name is Chris. The place is a dump because the people running it do not do their job.

off leash dog park yuba city, cal

The person who runs the dog park his is name Chris he is a looser does not take care of the park at all. there is no count ability for the money they collect. The place is a mess it is never mowed only by people who have nothing to do with the park. This Chris person should be replaced as soon as possible.

First time going

I have a Boxer/Black Lab mix and we were told about the park. We went right after a rain storm and the sun came out. Our dog is being trained to be a service/therapy dog. There was a family with two dogs, one an adult dog and one an elderly dog. Our dog at the time was 12 months old. Well since our dog has not been social with other dogs much I did not want to let her go. I allowed their dogs to sniff and greet and all seemed okay. I let my dog go and she ran with their adult dog. My dog came over to the elderly dog and wanted to play. Unfortunately she pinned the older dog to the ground and he growled and bared his teeth. I was on her so fast and pulled her off. I apologized to the family. They understood and said it was okay. I controlled my dog until they left. They were very friendly. After they left my dog had a blast running all over the park. The park is overgrown. As far as any of the rest of the postings here I believe most people who attend are people in the neighborhood. We drove all the way from Olivehurst to visit.

Agressive dogs

We took our two dogs as puppies to this dog park and for a long time everything was great. The park itself is perfect. Now however there are people that bring very aggressive dogs. We kept going back because our dogs love it but 99% of the time there is an issue with an aggressive dog. The owners of the aggressive dogs do nothing to control them. These are not random dogs, they are "regulars". I think the park should have volunteers to monitor the dogs, and have the authority to ask that aggressive dogs be removed. We have not been and will not be back. Sad for our guys that love to run and play.

Boxer hate

I was thinking of visiting this dog park, but after seeing all the negative comments about boxers, I think I will go elsewhere!

Weeds and Holes

Positives: There is a division btw large and small dog areas, there is water for the dogs, there are a few athletic obstacles, & people bring groceries bags that can be used to pick up dogs' waste. Negatives: Limited seating areas, no restrooms near by for humans (not even portables), unstable & hilly terrain, numerous gopher holes, & dry weed plants everywhere.

Mean lady

I go to the park 4-5 days a week with my very friendly labs. They love to chase after each other & run after a tennis ball. They have never been aggressive at all. Today I saw a little boxer pin down a labradoodle & attack her face. The owner just told her to stop & that was it. As the morning went by other dogs were being pinned down by this boxer & the owner did nothing. I decided to take my dogs into the small dog side in fear of the same thing happening. There were no other dogs in the small dog area. In fact the smaller dogs were playing in the big dog area. Later a man brought in his dog to the side we were at. All the dogs were playing nicely. And then an older lady pulls up in her car w/ 3 chihuahuas & yells at me to leave because I have big dogs & she is afraid of big dogs. I told her that my dogs are friendly & the park is for everyone to share. She still demanded that I get out of there. A lady that was there from the board stood up for me & told the other lady that she needs to calm down. The woman yelling at me to leave starts to tell me that she will report me to her friend "Nancy" on the board for playing in the small dog area. I decided to just leave with my dogs. Why do people have to be so mean and rude. For all I know her dogs could be mean! This is a nice park to let your dogs have fun at, but you do have to deal with some abnoxious individuals who feel that they have to be bullies & don't look after their dogs. You are not going to the park to sit there on your cell phone, you are going there to spend time with your dog!

Agressive dogs

I took my dog to this park today. She was playing fine with a black lab that showed up. After about 15 minutes two different owners with boxers showed up. At first they were fine playing but then they became aggressive clearly trying to put my dog 1/2 their size down and not just playing but putting her down and holding her there. The owners did nothing to control their dogs and I had to leave. Something needs to be done about aggressive dogs at this park. I do not recommend taking your dog their as long as owners do not control their dogs. If you have an aggressive dog that is attacking other dogs YOU should control your dog or leave.

A question for boxer owners who have been there.

I have not been to the park yet but I really want to take my boxer there. Im just worried that we will be asked to leave due to the boxers playing ways (they play rough like; whoever has one or has been around one should know what I mean). I noticed in one of the pictures there is a boxer there. Was it a good experience for the boxer or no? Please comment below. I really want to visit one day.


My dog loves the park and it's about him not me! He has never told me our park doesn't look good enough or has too many thistles. He is always happy to get in the gate and see who is there!! I have never had any trouble there. I have seen a couple of aggressive dogs that were asked to leave. All the people are great!!! We just need a little more organization and some help from everybody and things will get better. Don't just bad mouth the park, help make it better. We are the ones that have to make it better.

volunteer park

We spend allot of time with our dogs at the park. It gets no funding from the city and is entirely supported by volunteers. That said, it is a work in progress.It is dirty (which my dogs don't mind),has a huge area to run and play, with a smaller area for small dogs. 2 washing decks if you want to rinse off your dogs,lots of friendly people and dogs.The only trouble I have seen is with people who don't obey the rules posted on the front gate. I have seen people remind dog owners to clean up their own dogs messes. There is a trail around the perimeter(1/4 mile around)which allot of us use for exercise. It has been a great place to socialize my dogs and let them burn off excess energy,with the added bonus of meeting some great people.

RE: Security

I'm sorry you had to encounter the "ONE" person who prompts this kind of remark. I go to the park Monday thru Friday with a small but "big thinking" terrier without incident. We do not have a clutch of men that frequent the park, and I've never encountered any one who frightens or intimidates me there. I did hear about your incident however, and I do understand how you might have felt, but labeling the park the way you have over that encounter is really biased and unfair. Try giving us a chance in the morning if you can - depending on when you go, you may find the perfect fit for you and your dog. Different people hook up all day long at the same time so they can be with the dogs and people who support and play well.

fenced field

This is the best dog park in Yuba City - it is also the ONLY dog park in Yuba City. It is obvious that a great effort was made to fence the parcel and get water to it. This dog park is nothing but star-thistle and ticks in the summer and muddy in the winter.

MzZing's picture

This is a nice large park, however there is a clutch of men that attend the park that are terrible. They smoke, curse, bully, frighten, intimidate and are generally obnoxious to any single women, young or old. On three occassisions I have had the following situations: 1) A trained fighter dog in heat 2) My dog was bitin the face. 3) today - A guy screaming obscenities at me because my dog went to the bathroom.

Good N Dirty

This is a huge park w/lots of room to run. However, there is also a lot of open bear ground and durning the winter its absolutely horrible w/mud. Everyone is friendly and there is a large number of water buckets to drink out of. The small dog park is pretty nice but muddy too. Would go again if I have time, its kinda out and away from town.

Needs Work

Everyone at this park is extremely friendly. They provide a hose and several buckets to water your dog. There are chairs scattered around to sit and chat with people. They provide stations with waste-bags to keep it clean. It is extremely large but needs work. Don't wash your dog before you go because it is all dirt in the main area, and prickly weeds in the other areas.
