Photos: Crescenta Valley Dog Park Officially Opens

Diginitaries and dog lovers gathered Friday morning to help open up the county's first off-leash dog park.

Applause and barks of approval provided the soundtrack for the official opening ceremony for the Crescenta Valley Dog Park, Los Angeles County's first off-leash dog park. 

In addition to the variety of dogs and their owners, attendees included Supervisor Michael Antonovich, Assemblymen Anthony Portantino and Mike Gatto, and Crescenta Valley Town Council President Cheryl Davis, who thanked everyone who took part in helping to open "this little slice of heaven."

While the ceremony marks the park's official opening, the public has been able to use the park since the beginning of October.

Patch was there to take some photos of the event, and we'd like you to upload photos to the site to share!

Being the owner and best friend of Bacon this is the best place for a service dog to have a chance to be a dog. He works so hard keeping me safe all the time that sometimes he forgets how to be a dog. I give the CV Dog Park a 5 paws(stars) Rating!!!!!

Dogs can pick up diseases just by going on regular walks. They sniff pee spots and poop spots and other dogs' hind ends that way too. There are germs everywhere and most dogs that are generally healthy and vaccinated won't be done in by them. My visit to the dog park was filled with watching our little (and not so little) ones romping around while their proud canine parents looked on with happy expressions. Not sure who was having more fun: the dogs or their owners. This park was way overdue:-)

What are the hours and is there enough lighting at night? By the time I get home from work to walk my dog it's already dark.
