Let’s face it. A dog needs some room to play.
How about 230 acres?
That’s what canines get at Elings Park in Santa Barbara when their owners buy the Elings Park Dog Owner Group membership at $135 a year. The membership allows people to bring their dogs to the 230-acre park on a regular basis. No dogs can be inside the park without an EPDOG membership.
Members can go to any part of the park that isn’t being used for a special event, and they get free parking on the weekends.
News-Press Photo Editor Rafael Maldonado visited the park Monday and saw the dogs and their people on nature’s playground.
