Niles Community Park, Fremont, CA
Great for walks … and for dogs
Shinn Pond Dog Park, just west of Niles Community Park on the two-acre grassy meadow between Shinn Pond and the Alameda Creek Trail, is the best place for dogs in Fremont. While not “officially sanctioned” many people let their dogs run off-leash, swim, and generally party. Check the Quarry Lakes map (click to enlarge) for the exact location of Shinn Pond.
To the immediate west of Shinn Pond is the Quarry Lakes Recreation Area, another good area for hiking, biking and walking dogs (on leash).
- Park at Niles Community Park lot just south of 3rd/H Street or the small free lot at 472 School Street.
- Dogs are required to be on leash in Niles Community Park and Quarry Lakes. Many people let their dogs run off leash at the adjacent Shinn Pond Dog Park and on the Alameda Creek Trail.
