Those of us fortunate enough to have peaceful dogs and a general love of canines call Point Isabel home. It’s an off-lease paradise, if you love to watch dogs from the size of ponies to teacups all getting along with happy walkers. There are the...More

This is my Australian Shepherd’s favorite dog park. Lot of space to run and what dog can resist splashing in the bay. After my dog gets washed at Mudpuppy’s.

I like to park my car and walk the trails here. Point Isabel has panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay and both bridges. Plenty of parking.

My two dogs, and elderly-but-won't-admit-it black Lab and an elderly (ditto) mutt, LOVE Point Isabel. They can be off-leash, and although I was a bit worried about Blondie on her first visit, as she sometimes doesn't like other dogs, she does wonderfully well, as does...More

This is a perfect place for dog-lovers, even if they don’t currently have a dog. No matter what else is going on in one’s life, it is hard not to be joyful watching dogs running free, chasing balls and Frisbees, and doing all the things...More

I have been taking my dogs to point Isabel for years. Without exception they all love the place: the society of other dogs, the openness. I also enjoy the openness but also the fencing and limited access points that allow me the confidence. To allow...More
