The member’s only dog park at Humane Society Silicon Valley’s Animal Community Center is Silicon Valley’s first park for sophisticated dogs and their owners, open to dog-lovers who are willing to uphold and abide by the park's rules and regulations. We promote education towards responsible dog ownership and having well-behaved, happy dogs!

There have been confirmed cases of Canine Influenza Virus H3N2 (CIV) in the community and it is highly contagious, although Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) does not have any confirmed cases at this time.

All dog park members are required to have their dogs vaccinated for the full series of CIV H3N2 vaccines (initial vaccine, booster, plus one week after booster) to have access to the HSSV Dog Park.

For more information on CIV, visit Canine Influenza Virus H3N2 (CIV).

Upcoming Dog Park Etiquette Seminars

Click here to view our calendar and register for a seminar.

The goal of the Sue and Dick Levy Dog Park at our Animal Community Center is to provide a fun, social, and safe play environment for dogs and their people. To help achieve this goal, all applicants are asked to participate in a seminar about friendly, social dog behavior in a park setting.

This clean, regularly-maintained turf-park boasts:

  • Separate play areas for small and large dogs,
  • Multiple double-entry gates for park safety,
  • Contoured rolling hill topography,
  • Play pools with fresh water,
  • Clean-up stations,
  • Abundant parking close to the parks, and
  • Picnic benches covered by umbrellas.


The parks are open 7 days a week, 365 days a year!  Regular hours of operation are:

6 a.m. – 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. – 9 p.m.

On occasion, the parks may be closed for severe weather (e.g. heat waves, thunder-storms) as well as special events.  In such cases of park closures, members will be given advance notice via our HSSV ACC Park Online Community. 

Membership Requirements

To be considered for membership, dogs must be:

  • Spayed or neutered
  • Current on their vaccinations (DA2PP, Bordetella, and Rabies*)
  • At least six months old


All potential human members are required to attend a one time “Dog Park Etiquette” seminar as part of the dog park application process. The goal of this seminar is to help dog owners to better understand what our dogs are “saying” to us and to each other at the dog park. In this seminar, we will cover dog body language and how it helps us understand our dogs' emotional state in the park, as well as learning about appropriate and inappropriate play, how to predict and avoid potential conflicts as well as techniques for better managing your dogs to keep them safe at the park. This will be presented in the form of lecture, pictures and video!

At the conclusion, we will be available to answer any questions you may have to assist in making a more educated decision as to whether the Sue and Dick Levy dog park at HSSV is the right environment for you and your canine companions.

Applications will be accepted online after completion of seminar. Proof of vaccinations required to submit application.

$40.00 Seminar and Application Fee to enroll with up to 2 family members per registration (separate from yearly membership fees)

*A Titer Test may be substituted for a current vaccination.
