Rita Valentine Dog Park Suggested Improvements

It's easy to see the potential that Rita Valentine offers, but without some necessary improvements, the area will continue to see damage and erosion.  Our goal is to get ahead of the impact from the population using the park and to provide the improvements that will make the park experience more enjoyable for all users.  Our plan maintains the beauty of the area.

Phase One suggestions:

  • Improve the parking area
  • Add water access and fountain
  • Improve surfaces of trails 
  • Add trees, bushes, and irrigation
  • Possible add of benches and picnic tables
  • Replace and improve the information center at entrance
  • Consider a possible location for dog waste composting digester

Phase Two suggestions:

  • Add small dog area
  • Shelter structure
  • Additional landscaping
  • Consider whether or not there is a need/desire for more fencing
  • Installation of dog waste composting digester
