The Best Dog Parks in Santa Clarita

 

 

With beautiful weather year round, of course you want to be outside to enjoy it, but sometimes you feel guilty going out and having all the fun while your pup is stuck inside. I totally get it, that’s why I decided to explore the best spots in Santa Clarita for you and your dog to be able to enjoy the great outdoors together! 

First stop on my list was Central Park. If you haven’t already been here, then you’ve probably heard about it. This is the most popular dog park, in my personal opinion, in Santa Clarita. It’s located at 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road and also contains sports fields, picnic areas, and a playground! Central Bark has two sections, one for small dogs 25 pounds and under, and another one for larger dogs in case your pooch is frightened by large dogs. The one downside about this park is that if you have a grass lover, you’re out of luck because there’s no grass in the doggie areas. There are a lot of trees for shade though, which for me, is very important especially in the hot summer! 

Next on my list was Copper Hill Dog Park. Although this park is beautiful, it is not for dogs who don’t do well off-leash with no fence due to its open concept and proximity to a main road. If that isn’t an issue for your furry friend then they can enjoy the open space with beautiful green grass. As for the dog owners, if you like to enjoy the shade while watching your pup play, this also might not be the right park for you. 

The third stop was Five Knolls Dog Park. I love this park for many reasons, a few of which being the great features it offers. Everytime I have been to this park it is super clean and well maintained. There are two sections, one for all dogs and one for smaller pups. Along with umbrellas to provide shade, there are also scenic views to enjoy while your dog enjoys playing. The actual dog area is made up of dirt and artificial grass, so you have the best of both worlds. 

Last, but certainly not least: Canine Country. Even though this park is a little trickier to find than the others, it is definitely worth it! Being surrounded by activities like a pool and a skate park, this area has so much to offer. There’s a few trees for shade and is overall just a nice area to spend an afternoon. 

 

If you know of any other dog parks, let me know in the comments below, or tell me which is your favorite! I hope you and your pup get to enjoy one of these pawsome parks soon.

Three Ways To Ease Summer Boredom in Santa Clarita

Welcome! I am Tami and this is Time Out in Santa Clarita.

 

Today, I am going to show you a few places in Santa Clarita to take your family while school is out for the summer. If it’s too hot to play outside and the kids are driving you crazy by complaining they are bored, I have a few ideas for you!

 

Our first stop is the Rockin’ Jump Trampoline Park. It’s great for people of all ages. The kids will love it, but I would bet the adults have some fun too. There are trampolines all over the place. To keep you happy, they have massage chairs and even a quiet room to get away from the noise. They serve food and you can also host events at the trampoline park.  You won’t hear any complaints about being bored if you spend an afternoon at Rockin’ Jump.

 

Our next stop is Valencia Laser Blast. They have laser tag, a full arcade, and a concession stand. Your kids will get so worn out running around and playing all the games. Be sure to check out their site for special pricing. You can also become a member if you plan on taking your kids there often.

 

The third and final stop is the Old Town New Hall Library. You may have not been expecting us to end up at a library, but there are so many things for the kids to do! They offer science courses and cooking classes. Plus, they put on a lunch program and art activities.

 

Thank you for taking the time to check out my ideas for what to do with your kids in the heat of summer. Each stop has something to offer for both the parents and the kids so get out of the house and enjoy some family time!
