This beautiful park is designated as an open space and offers a fenced-in dog exercise park area (2.5 acres), small picnic areas, and approximately 63 acres of scenic hiking trails.

There are 8 entrances to Paso Nogal Park and open space. The main entrance is located on Paso Nogal Road. Others are Kiki Road, Boies Drive, Gail Drive, Odin Drive, Morello Avenue, and Paso Nogal Court.

The park and open space area is generally bounded by Taylor Boulevard to the south, Morello Avenue to the East, and Paso Nogal Road to the North.

Dogs must be on a leash AT ALL TIMES when outside of the fenced-in off-leash dog park area. This policy includes open space hiking trails. Please respect others on the trails who may or may not like a friendly (or not-so-friendly) greeting from your canine company. Our open spaces for everyone to enjoy. Again, please keep your dog on a leash at all times. 

To report uncooperative dogs or dog owners, please report the incident to Contra Costa Animal Services at (925) 608-8400.
