BIG WIN – Quarry Park will be the first SMC Park to legally allow dogs off-leash! 

With a 4-1 vote, the Board of Supervisors gave the green light for the off-leash dog pilot program at Quarry Park! We are so excited to share the news with you, our amazing supporters, and want to THANK YOU again for all your help throughout this process. It’s been a long and windy road, but common sense, public support and a fact-based approach prevailed. 

Under the new pilot program, dogs will be allowed off-leash on most trails at Quarry Park. After a 12-month period, data collected during the program will be presented to the Planning Commission and Board to determine whether off-leash dogs can safely become a more permanent fixture in the park. 

Once an official start date for the pilot is set, we’ll post it here. For now, please follow the current rules at Quarry Park, keep your dog leashed and clean up after your furry friend. Let’s show the general public that our community of dog owners is responsible and considerate of others and the environment. 

This is only the beginning, and with your support we’ll continue to advocate for more off-leash access in SMC because … Tails Belong on Trails!
