Why Do Kids Have to Be 12?


Younger children can be accidentally knocked over by dogs who are playing and parents are responsible for their care.

If an off-leash dog needs medical care or needs to be restrained, the handler needs to be old enough, mature enough, and strong enough to handle the situation.

Very young children (under age six) are allowed in the Park, though this is not encouraged. They are the responsibility of their parents or guardians.
