Great place to bring your dog and have a nice walk... lots of trails, 2 enclosures... one for all dogs, and one for small dogs or puppies. Dogs can be off leash and have a great time! the 'scenic journey' review is off track... there is NO train or restaurant there... ?? where were they?

This is a perfect spot for your dog or just yourself. They offer two different enclosures for your dog. One for the shy or puppy the other for a controlled chuckit. There are tons of safe flat trails as well as some quick steep hills. There is water bowls and spigots just about everywhere. Most people are very good about... More

The park has spectacular views, it is easy to find and get to with lots of parking, only a short distance for Rte 29 and Trancas-Redwood Rd. intersection. And, yet it gives you a great view of the entire Napa Valley. Park is locat4ed on a slightly elevated location, does not require much effort to get to, however, WATCH OUT!... More

Great for a stroll in town, but feels like in the woods. Borders vineyards, nice hilly terrain with benches aplenty. Friendly dogs out for their walks.

I go to this park about 3 to 4 times a week to get in a walk that works up a bit of a sweat. I like watching all of the people with their dogs as it is really a dog park. However, the northern part of the park requires dog owners to have their dogs on a leash and... More

Alston Park is perfect in any season. While some of the trails can be muddy during the winter, they are very useable. There are panoramic views from the hills, an off leash dog area and a dog play area. Mountain biking is also popular and it is an excellent park for cross country training. The users are friendly and helpful.... More

It's fairly close to downtown Napa and easy to find. It was a bit dry in the hot August heat, but there was plenty of room for the dogs to play and lots of other friendly dog-owners as well. Plus it's surrounded by beautiful vineyards!

A really cool place to let your dog off the leash and run untethered. My girl and I can get our exercise and let Jonah run freely and socialize as he pleases. We wish we lived closer!
