Vinyard Dog Park

Vineyard Dog Park opened on February 14, 2009 with construction paid for by donations from dog owners and local businesses. The park is maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers.
The fenced off-leash dog park is located on the west side of Templeton in north San Luis Obispo County with beautiful views of the surrounding oak-studded hillsides. The park is about 1 acre in size and is cross-fenced for separate “big dog” and “small dog” play areas.

Park amenities include water, shade trees, picnic tables, park benches, dog bag dispensers, dog toys, and wading pool (summer time only).

Because our park is financed entirely by donations, we ask park visitors to pay a $1 day use fee or an annual membership of $25 per year. Membership fees received after September 1st will also receive tags for the following year.

Five Cities Dog Park Association

The Five Cities Dog Park Association is an official non-profit organization, thanks to the folks at SLOPOST, the San Luis Obispo Parks Open Space & Trails Foundation ( The Five Cities Dog Park Association is committed to the development of a local off-leash park in the Five Cities area (Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, Pismo Beach, Shell Beach, Oceano).

El Chorro Dog Park

The El Chorro Dog Park was opened in 2001, the first fenced off-leash dog park in San Luis Obispo County. It was built by SLO-4-PUPs, a volunteer organization that is part of SLOPOST (San Luis Obispo Parks, Open Space and Trails Foundation). SLOPOST is a tax-exempt 501c3 nonprofit corporation that works to provide recreational opportunities in this county. The El Chorro Dog Park was built by volunteers with donations from dog lovers throughout the county. Many of these original supporters are recognized on the kiosk display board.

Heilmann Dog Park

In 2003 a dedicated group of dog lovers from Atascadero, Templeton and Paso Robles joined forces with the idea of establishing a dog park in north San Luis Obispo County.
After a great deal of effort, we entered into an agreement with San Luis Obispo County which allowed us to adopt a two-thirds of an acre section of land at Heilmann Park in Atascadero.

Fundraising began in earnest and ground for the park was broken in early 2005. The services of the California Conservation Corps were enlisted to dig holes and build the fence. The park officially opened in April 2005.

Our park features two double gated entries, one on the north side and one on the west side. We also have water, picnic tables, shady oaks, a patio, a doggie spa and an information kiosk built for us by Eagle Scout Jayk Thorne and his dad as his community project.

We are an all volunteer group and virtually every penny of support we have received comes directly from you, the users of the park and members of our community. We are a subproject group of SLOPOST, San Luis Obispo Parks, Open Space and Trails. As a non-profit group, all donations are tax-deductible
