Lake Tahoe’s newest dog park to open Sunday; $6 rabies shots offered

TAHOE VISTA, Calif. — The grand opening of Lake Tahoe’s newest dog park is set for Sunday, Oct. 18, from 1-3 p.m. in Tahoe Vista.

Officials from the North Tahoe Public Utility District and Placer County Parks & Recreation Commission, and a representative from the Placer County Board of Supervisors, will join the nonprofit Dog Day in the Park to commemorate Phase I of the Tahoe Unleashed Dog Park at the North Tahoe Regional Park.

Dog Day in the Park spokeswoman Pam Berger said the first phase includes the small and large dog parks. Phase II (the Outback area) is expected to open some time next year.

At Sunday’s event, $6 rabies vaccines will be offered, as well as pet safety and wellness information, doggie goodie bags and light snacks.

Donations are sought for ongoing park maintenance. For information, email Berger at or visit

North Tahoe Regional Park is located at 6600 Donner Road in Tahoe Vista.
