I had not been to Peace Valley Park and decided that during the unseasonably warm February we've had to take my dog up there and go for a walk. On the day I was there (likely due to the nice weather) it was jam packed....More

An oasis. Wonderful any time of year, as others have said, though they don't clear the path during winter, so bring appropriate shoes. Fun for walking, running, biking, xc skiing, meditating, picnicking, and recharging. I've seen people fishing, sailing, floating overhead in hot air balloons,...More

If we bring our dog, can she safely jump in the water. I know there were bacterial issues in the past. She won't be swimming for hours, but might chase a stick or two.

I've seen many dogs jumping in the water there. I live right down the street and haven't heard of any issues?
