Red Hill Dog Park Steering Committee

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT 11/27/23:

There is a respiratory disease that is going around the country affecting dogs. It can be serious and most veterinarians are suggesting that people refrain from social dog activities to reduce the spread and infection of the disease.

We have reached out to the Marin Humane Society and they are working on a public statement. We will post when it becomes available. 

In the meantime, check this link for the UC Davis Veterinary School for recent news and updates.

Objectives

The purpose of the Red Hill Dog Park Steering Committee (RHDPSC) is to provide input to the town regarding ongoing operation of the Red Hill Dog Park and to serve in an advisory capacity to the town regarding dog use issues at other town parks. 

The Committee consists of seven community representatives, that serve a minimum of a two-year term. Members must have an interest in and commitment to the importance and value of Red Hill Dog Park and other authorized dog play areas in the Town of San Anselmo.

RED HILL DOG PARK UPDATE

Members of the Red Hill Dog Park Steering Committee met with Town Public Works Department representatives to discuss the drainage issues in the Dog Park that have recently been compounded by the series of heavy rain events.

When the Dog Park was initially conceived over 13 years ago, it was creatively designed and built with community donations and volunteer sweat equity.  Fast forward to today and this park has become a well-used and beloved dog/owner destination. And the basic, original design needs to be updated.

Short term Fix - wood chips
The Town has put down wood chips in the heavily muddied areas of the park.

Long term Plan
Town staff will research the situation and propose some long-term solutions to the Red Hill Dog Park Steering Committee and Town Council to remedy the drainage issues.  Any work will be done after the rains have subsided. The Town will update communication as information becomes available.
