Potso Dog Park to Get a Facelift|
Updated September 2013
Improvements are coming to Potso Dog Park courtesy of the voter-approved $17 million park and open space bond.
The city will install an irrigation system to improve the quality of the turf grass at the park.
Healthier turf will reduce wet, muddy conditions during the rainy season and make the terrain
safer for active dogs and more aesthetically pleasing for their owners.
The city will also pave the existing gravel parking lot, creating more uniform parking
spaces, increased accessibility and less dust.
Construction of the irrigation system is expected to begin Fall 2013; the park will
close for approximately one week while the work is underway. Parking lot construction
and paving is expected during spring of 2014.

Potso Dog Park Ownership
The city bought the 2.6-acre Potso Dog Park property in March of 2011. The park was
originally developed on property leased by the city from Coe Manufacturing in
2002. Funds for the property purchase came from the $17 million park bond
measure passed by voters in November 2010.
Prior to purchasing the park, hours of operation were limited by the terms of
the lease. Under city ownership, park hours were expanded.
