Upcoming Closure Sat, March 24th Until 1pm:
Attention Martinez Temporary Dog Park Enthusiasts - Closure of the Dog Park will take place the morning of Saturday, March 24th until 1pm due to the City’s Annual Mini Motorland. The Martinez Waterfront Amphitheater will be transformed into a child size interactive village, navigated by rideable toys, trikes and bikes from 10:00 am-12:00 pm. Over 100 children and their families are expected to attend the fun-filled morning. The Dog Park will not be used for any event activities and will remain closed. Clean up is expected to be completed by 1:00 pm - at which time the Dog Park will reopen.
If you have any pre-school aged children, we encourage you to attend. You can sign up online here! Please leave your dog at home until the event is over.
Thank you for your continued flexibility and understanding in sharing the Martinez Waterfront Amphitheater and Temporary Dog Park with our upcoming event.
The Martinez City Council adopted Resolution No. 039-17 on April 5, 2017, which designated the John Muir Amphitheater (also known as the Martinez Waterfront Amphitheater) as a Temporary Dog Park Site for a period of up to three years from the first date of public use, and allocated $50,000 to help fund necessary improvements.
Since receiving City Council approval to proceed, City staff transformed portions of the Amphitheater into a Temporary Dog Park, which opened to the public on July 14, 2017. This exciting space near the marina has become a communal spot for dog owners in the area and is enjoyed by many dog-loving enthusiasts.
