Ok, corny play on the “Degarmo” Park name. But I do think it’s pretty cool that there is a nice little doggy park in Chico now where our furry four-legged friends (and their people) can congregate to run, play and socialize. A collaborative effort between the City of Chico and CARD (Chico Area Recreation District), the recently-completed Degarmo Park is located on Leora Ct., off the Esplanade, just north of Eaton Rd. (Click here for a map.)
I tagged along with son Gabe, the lovely Eva, and their newest family member Jasper recently, and it was a blast! Watching the dogs racing around on the lawn, meeting/greeting new and old friends in that funny, sniffing doggy way (remember, talking about the DOGS here). We even ran into Aggy and her “intendo” Brandon there with their cute, speedy little girl Harlow. The dog park is fully fenced (with a two-gated entry for defense against Houdini-type pets) and has drinking fountains for the dogs and their humans. If you have a friendly mutt, check it out!
