Dog Parks


Barkley Park and Happy Paws Park

Two community dog parks allow our four-pawed furry friends to romp and play in generous open spaces. Happy Paws Park is new, with recently installed social areas and a long dog run. Barkley Park, overlooking Calypso park, has sides for big and small dogs, a long dog run and shaded seating.

Sandoval has two dog parks that provide a great place for your little friends to run and play !  Barkley Park is in Phase 1 and Happy Paws Park is in Phase 3.
