About our 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.


Vineyard Dog Park is a non-profit organization affiliated with SLOPOST (San Luis Obispo Parks, Open Space and Trails Foundation).


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 October 1st will also receive tags for the following year. Click here for more information regarding donations and membership.
