History of the Larkspur Canine Commons Dog Park


The Larkspur Canine Commons is Moving

Why Move.png
On July 13, 2013, City Council acted to restore the Larkspur Canine Commons Dog Park to a wetlands and authorize the dog park to be relocated.

The City staff held two public workshops, August 22, 2013 & September 11, 2013. Options for the new dog park were presented to the public which included Niven Park, the north end of Piper Park and the South end of Piper Park and the option for no dog park at all. The results of the public outreach were presented to the Parks and Recreation Commission on September 19, 2013 and to the City Council on October 2, 2013.

The powerpoint presentation to City Council can be viewed at:

City Council gave direction to staff to proceed with relocating the dog park to the south end of Piper Park.

The Public Works and Recreation Departments have worked with the Consultant team to develop concept plans for public comment. These plans are intended to provide images for the public to comment on preferences and give ideas for the design of the new facility.

We ask that you review the concepts and give us your comments. Please feel free to complete our questionnaire, Dog Park Comments & Ideas. and drop it off at City Hall, the Recreation Department or the Public Works Department. You can also email or fax it to us at or 415-927-5090.
