New Dog Park Coming!

Yesterday The Mighty Finn McCool attended the groundbreaking ceremonies for the new Jody Giannini Family Dog Park at Del Mark Park. Volunteers with Moro Bay Pups ( have been working for years to get an off-leash dog park up and running in Morro Bay. After years of work and heavy lifting, the park was given a generous donation by the Giannini family in honor of Jodi Giannini and so installing the fence and entrance paths and other amenities can commence.

The effort was also helped by the sponsorship of Coast Veterinary Clinic (Finn’s favorite place!), the Drs. John Truax, Duane Stephens and Elias Stack-Aguirre. Not to mention all the generous help from so many other people.

The site is the lovely tree-laden hillocks on the west side of Del Mar Park (north Morro Bay) just past the basketball, hockey rink and future tennis courts. There’ll be a separate small dog area and large dog area.

And Finn can’t wait until it’s open so he can go run very fast on all that lovely grass. (And with his luck, slip and break his other leg so he can go visit Dr.Truax and Dr. Stevens. . . again. Sigh.)
