Keep yourself and your pets safe and be aware of your surroundings as it may be the season when rattlesnakes are found on the trails and in the parks. If you encounter a rattlesnake in an urban area near your house, you may call the fire department to remove it. For more information on living with venomous reptiles in our area, please click here.

Off Leash Dog Parks
Naranja Park contains two new off leash dog areas; one for smaller dogs and one for larger dogs. Dogs should be exercised within the park that is appropriate for their size to avoid potential conflict. Puppies under the age of 4 months (without their complete set of shots) are prohibited due to the possibility of contagious diseases like Parvo that may be present. Dogs may only be exercised off leash within the off leash areas - not on the athletic fields or trails in the Park, as per Town Code.
The dog parks will be closed for maintenance on Tuesdays between 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Dog Park Amenities:
