Dusty Rhodes Dog Park in Ocean Beach O.B. San Diego

Some people love this little park, and some do not. It is right across the road from Robb Field in Ocean Beach. (Few people know that Robb Field, despite being located in Ocean Beach, is part of Mission Bay Park--or at least it is funded that way).

The dogs are not out of control as they often are at Dog Beach..just down the San Diego River.
From the sign, you can see that, since it is part of Ocean Beach, it needs funding, which is probably not going to come, unless someone from AIG has a dog on vacation here or something!!

Everyone here or almost everyone (never talk in absolutes), cleans up after his or her dog and keeps her or his dog under control. It is a very small dog park, but one that receives lots of use, considering how close Dog Beach is to it. It is a very small part of Dusty Rhodes park, who was a local person who used to do a lot with the OB Planning Board. Long ago, I used to attend meetings of this board, and I vaguely remember him.

Access (one way, in and out) is through Nimitz, and a little difficult to navigate. After you cross West Point Loma or turn right on Voltaire, you have gone too far. By the way, if you do cross West Point Loma, then on the left you will have the 3 baseball fields--one is actually named for my neighbor in upper Ocean Beach (now called Point Loma Heights)..since he has helped kids with baseball and helped maintain the fields for many, many years. I do not think he would appreciate his name posted here..although he never had the internet for many, many years.
He still has no heat..and no cable tv..(we gave in and have had cable tv for about 6 years now..and did not have it the previous 10, believe it or not.)

With no tv, no newspaper, no internet, and no heat can be as happy as a dog!!!

and you do not ever to worry about losing your hair..well Wendy sheds a lot.. I am saving her hair so I can eventually become a blonde!!! (Have you never heard the expresson.."that person is a Labrador blonde"???)


  1. Thank you for sharing all these great dog spots as well as great photos! I can't wait to try some of these places with our dog.

  2. the Dusty kin git that way sometimes --

    all in all though it's a great park and located jist at the sunset end of the I-8 freeway --

    a turnaround point for me as I do search loops lookin fer stranded motorists and accident victims in need of assistance

    Shotgun Shela, my search hound, loves the place!

    "She" sits up and starts sniffin the air as we git near the I8 & I5 confluance. then, as we git closer she starts "singin" ;) sometimes we'll make it a duet [ German film crew caught us on camera doin jist this last year as they were filmin us fer German TV [ they had 2 cameras affixed in my SAR rig to record my doins out "playin on the freeway" -- helpin folks ]

    they also filmed AT the park while "She" cavorted w other dogs and I mentioned that I use a dog park comparison to tell folks to GIT OFFA MY TAIL when I'm drivin -- I say , on the PA, "the freeway's NOT a dogpark! -- ya git any closer to my tail yer gonna git brown on yer nose!" -- got a PA w front & rear speakers -- comes in handy ;)

    usually people smile and begin leavin more space --


    near the west entrance there's a tree that doubles as a lounge chair -- fits me perfect -- I kin sit up jist high enuf so's only a REALLY tall dog has any chance of "markin" me ;) or where I'm sittin -- always check afore I sit ;)

    as fer the landmines -- there's a lot of em -- PEOPLE PICK UP AFTER YER DOGS!

    fergot to check my shoes once -- and was hittin the I-8 EB when I noticed a smell -- EEEWWWWW -- all over my floor mat & brake pedal -- EEEEWWWW!

    always check my feet on leavin the gate now ;)

    park is fenced, double gated, there are trees, usually lotsa chairs folks bring to leave off, on th west side there's a concrete picnic table, at the south entrance there is a water fountain fer pups & peeps, & parkin lots @ both entrances

    oh, and the smaller fenced area is NOT intended fer smaller dogs -- that is jist so when it rains -- THAT area floods -- and some folks dogs aren't so well "voice controlled" ;)

    *my* girl understands and obeys "stay outta the water" ;)

    course now, iffin we're @ dog beach in Coronado -- she understands "HIT the water" jist as well :) "She" LOVES to run and frolic in the surf!

    witnessed a couple of fights in 6 years of goin here -- one I broke up w my walkin stick -- carry a shieghleigh I do ;) it don't bleed -- keeps the rambunctous fur folks offa me as well

    funnyist thing I ever saw my "She" do here -- "She" is fixed, but has an affinity fer young attractive male pit bulls -- [ she's a Lab - Smooth Collie herself ] She went upta this one goodlookin young pit , sniffed him VERY intimatly, turned, and looked at me and smacked her lips w a smile!!!!!!

    there were bout 5 of us standin there chattin when she did it and ALL of us hadta be carefull not to fall on the ground [ landmines] ;) we was laughin SO hard!!

    "She" lives here -- http://snowchains.trip...

  3. the "Dusty" ain't so much anymores -- nor is it leetil -- it's been expanded and improved greatly! YEAH!
