Morse Park Dog Park Upgrade

Morse Park Dog Park is located in Morse Community Park at 5540 Bellaterra Drive. This project is part of a District-wide plan to update Cosumnes CSD dog parks.

Community Outreach

Community outreach was held on July 10, 2018 to discuss and generate ideas for the design of Morse Park Dog Park. A conceptual plan was created with the following amenities:

  • Shade shelter in large dog park area
  • Shade shelter in small dog park area
  • Increase size of small dog area
  • Cobble bioswale with fence to help with drainage
  • Increase size of concrete plaza for portable pools
  • Add concrete pathway in both large and small areas
  • Add more seating with seat walls and benches
  • Add 30 additional trees for shade
  • Reduce the size of the hill in large dog area so that grass can recover quicker
  • Add planting areas as a buffer in the front entrance and perimeter
  • Add additional trash receptacles
  • Add natural agility play elements for dogs
    • Climbing boulders
    • Climbing logs and hollow log tunnel house
    • Balance beam
