The City of Santa Clarita (that's Valencia/Magic Mountain area and environs) opened its one and only dog park -- Central Bark -- late last year. The 1.3 acre, off-leash doggie park is located in Central Park (27150 Bouquet Canyon Road) and has designated gated areas for small dogs (25 lbs. and under) and larger dogs. It's open from dawn to dusk and is a great place for friendly dogs and their owners to hang out.

This LAist editor spent a few hours with the smaller dogs at Central Bark for the above slideshow. Next time, maybe we'll hang with the big ones. (And Kirby, the cutest dog evvvaaah at the end of the show belongs to moi. Just sayin')
