In 2017, the Rancho Cucamonga City Council began the process of updating the Central Park Master Plan to create a vision for the remaining park space. The master plan, which was adopted in 2020, identified smaller, buildable sections ranging in size from 3 to 10 acres that are comprised of financially responsible amenities within each segment. During this process, the community identified a dog park as one of the top "passive facilities" for Central Park. Using this feedback, the City designated a 4.4-acre site at Central Park for a future dog park. In 2019, the City was awarded a grant from the State of California in the amount of $3 million. The funding was specifically requested for the construction of the dog park because it is one of the smaller segments of the overall master plan, and many of the components will be useful for future improvements to Central Park.



The park includes the following amenities and design features:

  • Three, 1/2-acre dog interaction areas, separated by fencing to create separate areas for different-sized dogs and the ability to close off a section when needed for maintenance without needing to close the entire park
  • Shade structures
  • Water fountains for dogs and owners
  • Seating areas
  • Amenities and furnishings that will create a healthy, interactive, and social experience for dogs and owners.
  • Parking lot
  • Lighting for dog interaction areas, walkways, and parking lot.
  • Dog-friendly landscaping with proper irrigation
  • Waste receptacles and pet waste stations
  • Reconfiguration of the intersection of Base Line Road and Spruce to allow for direct entrance.
  • Sidewalk installation along Base Line Road, adjacent to the dog park.
