Ohlone Dog Park  Hearst St./Grant St., in Ohlone Park.  Free.  Established as an experiment in 1979, this was the first leash-free dog park in the nation.  It has 4-foot-high fences that foil even the most gifted jumpers.  A concrete walkway is equipped with seating areas alongside, and a lawn with wood chips is on either side of the walkway.  Water taps are provided at both ends of the park.  Because it is partially paved, the park is a particularly good choice in wet weather, and dogs like to run here.  Owners must clean up after their dogs, and plastic bags are provided.
