designed to catch the overflow and surplus of the world's worship.... [H]is master works for the means wherewith to purchase
the idle wag of the Solomonic tail, seasoned with a look of tolerant recognition." ~ Ambrose Bierce, The

Fridays in the Park

Use your judgement. Bring whatever seems appropriate. Remember, it may be sunny, cloudy, windy or all of the above, but dog
people are tough. Beginning
about ~ 5:00.

Mill Valley has many micro climates so
the following weather link may not accurately reflect the weather you'll find at the dog park. The dog
park probably has the widest expanse of level open space and unobstructed views of the sky in town and so is affected
by wind and sun more than most places in Mill Valley. It's a good idea to keep an extra sweater or jacket in your
car as well as to be ready to shed some clothes when you arrive at the park.
Here is a detailed report of the weather at Sycamore
Park, about 3/4 of a mile from the Mill Valley Dog Park. Except for the wind, the conditions there should be similiar
to the dog park.
"If a dog will
not come to you after having
looked you in the face, you should go home
and examine your conscience." ~ Woodrow Wilson

The Mill Valley Dog Park is a Mill Valley, California
public park maintained by the City of Mill Valley, Department of Parks and Recreation and volunteers. We estimate that
about 400 + dogs are weekly visitors to the Mill Valley Dog Park and about 100 - 150 use it daily. The Park is open
~ and used ~ every day of the year from dawn to dusk. It is never closed due to weather; dogs are in the Park during rain
and on the warmest days. It is common to find dogs from other Marin County towns and from other counties.
Dog owners who have moved away frequently bring their dogs back to the Park for visits; some from considerable distances.
age means realizing you will never own all the dogs you wanted to." ~ Joe Gores
"I talk to him when I'm lonesome like,
I'm sure he understands.
When he looks at me so attentively,
and gently licks my hands;
Then he rubs his nose
on my tailored clothes,
but I never say naught thereat,
For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes,
never a friend like that!"
