Bring Your Canine Pal to Manteca
Dog parks can be a lifesaver for those of us who love our pets but do not have a large backyard in which they can play. Taking your canine friend to a dog park can get out their energy, help them with socialization, and get them ready for a relaxing rest of the day. Fortunately, Manteca has a great dog park available to its residents, and there are several available in the surrounding regions as well.
Manteca Dog Park
The Manteca Dog Park is located at 1070 Eucalyptus Street and is open from dawn until dusk every day. It may close on rainy days to prevent damage to the turf. It also closes periodically for turf restoration and other maintenance. These closures are posted on the City’s Facebook page, so be sure to check before you head out. You can also call the Park office at (209) 456-8600. Office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and every other Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
