The recently opened La Paws Dog Park is located 25100 Felipe Road near La Paz Road and next to the baseball fields at Gilleran Park.
Named for its proximity to La Paz Road, the park is divided into three fenced areas; one for large dogs, one for small canines and another for single owner/family dogs. There is a graded pathway around the entire 3 acre dog park area where visitors can stroll around the entire park and take in the views of the canyon and the Saddleback Mountains.
This is the place were dogs can run around, chase a ball, languish in the shade, run around and socialize with other dogs of their size. Owners can interact with their pets or simply kick back in several of the shaded benches. The dog activity areas have plenty of open grass, some small trees for shade and water fountain with spouts for the two legged animals up top and a lower spout for our four legged friends.
There's plenty of parking for about 40 cars in the gravel graded lot. The city of Mission Viejo claims the gravel allows water penetrate the ground and prevent run off into the storm drains along the street. At this time there is no restroom facilities for the two legged critters.
