The Boneyard Dog Park

The Boneyard Dog Park at Culver City Park opened in 2006. The construction of the Park was a collaboration between the City of Culver City and the Friends of the Culver City Dog Park. There are enclosures for Small/Timid Dogs, Large Dogs, and one for a Time-Out. Dogs must be off-leash in the enclosures.

The Boneyard is for you and your dog(s) enjoyment. In the spirit of peace, tranquility, health and safety for all, please follow the Rules.
