April 23rd, 2013

MorgueFileResidents at our apartments in Foster City are happy because they’re living in the midst of everything with countless urban and pastoral options easily available. These privileges are not only limited to human dwellers, but for dogs as well.

 A section of Foster City’s Dog Park is available for dogs to run free, regardless of their size. To make your stay at Foster Dog Park exciting, you simply have to follow some basic rules like cleaning up afterward your pet and ensuring your four-legged friend is obedient.

Those same rules apply to Shore Dogs Park, just eight miles south on US-101 to Holly Street in Redwood City. This location has drinking water for dogs and benches for you to sit on and enjoy the view of the San Francisco Bay.

Seal Point Dog Park also provides a view of the bay, but it’s much closer to The Plaza. Just head north on 3rd Avenue, and you’ll be hard-pressed to miss the spacious area. Surrounded by trails and grassy hillsides, big and small dogs will have free reign to run and get a drink from a water bowl at this dog park.
