ANAHEIM, Calif. (May 14, 2021) — West Anaheim residents are seeing change take place before their eyes with today's opening of Maxwell Dog Park.

The long-awaited dog park provides residents, families, and, of course, dogs, with an awesome new place to play. 

“As great as this dog park is, it represents so much more," Mayor Harry Sidhu said. "It is part of our commitment to improve our neighborhoods in west Anaheim. We know change can’t come fast enough. But as we see with this beautiful dog park, change is happening."

The 1-acre dog park opening was marked with residents and their dogs breaking in play areas.

The park, Anaheim's fourth dog park, includes:

  • Areas for large and small dogs
  • Agility features to climb up or over or run through 
  • Separated entrances with a holding area in each to prevent dogs from running out of the park
  • Grass covered hills
  • Drinking fountains for people and dogs
  • Bone-shaped benches
  • Shade trees

Maxwell Dog Park is at 2650 W. Broadway. It sits at the north end of the 22-acre Maxwell Park adjacent to Haskett Branch library. The dog park is open daily 5 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

"With the opening of this dog park, we celebrate hope, commitment, and a bright future for west Anaheim," said Council Member Jose Diaz, who represents District 1 in west Anaheim. "I can't wait to see all my neighbors and their dogs enjoying this great addition to our community."

The city’s investment in west Anaheim was also on display this week with the ground breaking of 39 Commons, a 30-acre redevelopment project including a shopping center, commercial uses, homes and community spaces. The first phase of the project includes townhomes for sale and is slated for completion in early 2022. 

In 2017, the city of Anaheim began to acquire blighted and rundown properties along Beach Boulevard between Lincoln and Orange avenues. The move was a part of an ongoing effort to reclaim Beach Boulevard and drive new investment in the area.
