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.
