Nestled inside the 24 acre Dominguez Park, Redondo Beach Dog Park features a 3 acre fenced-in run for both large and small dogs. There are also plenty of benches, chairs and tree-shaded areas for humans and the requisite watering stations for dogs (and even humans). You’ll even find a few patches of grass still clinging to life amidst the well-worn expanses of dirt.
Because of the secluded nature of the park and its surrounding community, most visitors are from the Redondo Beach area and tend to be mindful of their animals and the park in general. This makes this particular dog park an attractive location to visit for both locals and those living in nearby areas. Redondo also seems to be a very family-friendly park as there are often children in the dog runs, but be sure to also keep an eye out for these kids as you are responsible for the actions of your pet.There is a large parking lot available as well as plenty of street parking should the need arise. There are two bathrooms located in Dominguez park, near the two little league baseball fields. Also of note: The Heritage Court Historical Museum, featuring two restored, historical homes and a beautiful rose garden, is right next door.
Even though the runs at this park are fenced, you should still consider GPS tracking for your dog in case they get away from you or find a way out of the enclosure.
Redondo Beach Dog Park Entrance
When you first enter the park, you’ll find that there are actually two located here – one of them is the Redondo dog park while another is Dominguez Park that offers athletic fields and other facilities. You’ll see signs that will direct you to the appropriate area to get down to the off-leash dog runs. There is also a bulletin board at this dog park where you can find notices of lost pets, relational services and even sponsorship plagues for people that have donated to make the park a better place.
Off-Leash Area for Small Dogs
There is a rather big off-leash area that is fenced and is specifically for small dogs or puppies only. Small dogs should be under 30 pounds in weight and puppies should be less than six months old. Look for the dual-gated entrance to get in it. You’ll also find signs here that will tell you a variety of rules that must be followed to visit this park.
The majority of the area for small dogs is complete unshaded and mostly dirt. However, at the back of the run, you will find a nice area covered in grass that has some shade trees and shrubery. You can also find numerous benches back there, many of which offer a shaded seat during the hot midday sun in California. Compared with the large run, this area offers much more shade.
Off-Leash Area for Large Dogs
There is an even larger fenced-in area for large dogs at this park that also features a dual-gated entrance. This is especially useful for larger dogs that are generally fast, as they can easily slip in or out of a single-gated entrance when others are entering or leaving the enclosure. You will also notice that there is a lost and found section located on the back of the rules signs – hooks are available to hold items that you may find left at the park or where you may find the items you forgot during your previous visit.
There is also a nice section at the back of the large run that includes grass, trees and shrubs, but this area looks to be much newer than that found in the small run because the trees are not overly big here and do not provide too much shade. Just like the small run, many benches can be found here so you can take a break while your pet gets some exercise. There is also another area at this dog park that is fenced-in but only offers a single gate that is often not closed. Dogs are allowed off-leash here as well, so this can be a better option for shade for owners of large dogs as long as they can keep their pet under voice control.
