Zooming in and out will give you a very clear understanding of how our park "fits" into Mill Valley.

From parking on Sycamore Ave, the Middle School lot or the 450 Sycamore Ave. lot, walk to the "turnaround". The Bike Path passes the "turnaround" and directly across the Bike path from the "turnaround" you will see a grassy area.  While you can reach the dog park from the Bike Path, it is advisable to walk across the grassy area to the path on the opposite side that follows the shore of the Bay.  Turn right (south) onto this path which is defined by a chain link fence on the right and the shore on the left.  Continue on the path for about 300 feet keeping the chain link fence on your right.  This path will lead you directly into the dog park where you will see a sign welcoming you to the Mill Valley Dog Run.  Please be aware that the paths leading to the dog park are not "off leash

These pictures show the walk from the "turnaround", parking areas, bike path and grassy area and along the bayside path to the dog park.
