Leashed pets are welcome in our parks but not on the athletic fields. Please make sure to pick-up after your pets! Not only does cleaning up after your pet help ensure clean parks, it is the healthy and environmentally sound thing to do. Pet waste can be harmful to people and is a contributor to water pollution when washed into storm sewer systems and streams. Did you know we have Pet Waste Stations at some of our local parks? They can be found at Kimmel, Mountain Peak, and Ridgeview Parks. Please see our Pet Waste Information Sheet for issues and helpful hints.
