RENO — Washoe County’s Link Piazzo Dog Park in Hidden Valley Regional Park, closed since Oct. 10 so the county’s Department of Regional Parks and Open Space can conduct seasonal turf maintenance, is set to reopen Saturday.
Washoe County Regional Parks and Open Space appreciates the popularity of the Link Piazzo Dog Park and thanks the public for their patience during this three-week period. Seasonal turf maintenance is important and necessary in order to keep the lawn areas healthy and the dog park in the best possible condition.

“Washoe County Regional Parks & Open Space has been contacted by a local veterinarian regarding cases of parvo virus in the area. The virus is transmitted through dog feces, is highly contagious and often fatal.
For your pet’s protection, please follow this guideline:
