Half Moon Bay Dog Park Wavecrest Rd & Cabrillo Hwy S, Half Moon Bay, CA94019 Half Moon Bay Dog Park is an example of what can be accomplished when residents join together to improve their…More community. Located off of Highway 1 -- tucked away next to Smith Field Little League Park and the Half Moon Bay Horseshoe Pits -- the park opened in 2001 after the city agreed to set aside the area as a public space where dogs could run off leash. Although the park is under the jurisdiction of the Half Moon Bay Recreation Department, the Committee for a Coastside Dog Park pays for maintenance costs, which includes the fencing around the park, the grounds and cleaning. Since there is no entry fee, the committee holds periodic fundraising events. It also encourages users to join the committee and contribute a donation to keep the park open. The wood chip-covered grounds are well kept, and there are picnic tables and lawn chairs for the dogs' owners. A small walk-in structure holds cleaning supplies and information for visitors. There is no separate play area for small dogs. To enter the park, dogs must be fully immunized, dewormed, licensed by owners and wearing an identification tag. Dogs less than four months old, as well as those who have not been vaccinated for parvo virus or kennel cough, are not allowed in the park.
