December 26, 2009 (Santee) -- The City of Santee is half way through a one-year trial program allowing dogs off leash in certain city parks. Now there's tail-wagging good news for dogs and their owners: Santee has increased the hours allowed for dog owners to let their pets exercise in designated areas without being constricted by a leash.
At Big Rock Park, off-leash hours are now Monday through Friday from dawn to 9:00 a.m.
At Mast Park, off leash use is now permitted daily from dawn to 9:00 a.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to dusk.
At Woodglen Vista Park, off-leash use is now permitted Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays from dawn to 9:00 a.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to dusk.
