Sign at Houndtown Dog ParkOn April 16, 2008, the City opened its first dog park called Hound Town. The park is located at the Moreno Valley Equestrian Center, 11150 Redlands Boulevard, at the southeast level of the Center. The park is a collaborative effort between Canine Friends of Moreno Valley (who solicited donations of materials and labor from businesses), and local Boy Scout groups and the City’s Park Maintenance staff.

The one-acre park is divided into two sections; one for large dogs and the other for smaller breeds. Additional features include: a three-in-one drinking fountain for dogs and their owners, two waste stations, a shelter with park benches for sitting, and planters with trees. There is a handicap accessible restroom and parking available on site. This site was recently upgraded with canine training equipment, benches, turf and sprinklers.

The park is open from 7:00 a.m. to dusk, seven days a week. So, pack up your canine companions and give them a chance to enjoy the new equipment.
