The Urban Forest’s Best Friends

“Thank you for all that you and the volunteers do to keep the Urban Forest looking so beautiful.

“We walk there once a week and it is always a place of peace and beauty. Saoirse (a Gaelic name meaning Liberty) is a rescue dog who is always enjoys  a walk in the park.”

                                                                                                   – Debora

“Poffie has crossed the rainbow bridge, but throughout her many years of living in Huntington Beach, she enjoyed frequent walks through the Urban Forest. She led by example that we should all stop to smell the flowers and admire the butterflies fluttering by. She’d also remind you to chase the squirrels! Thank you for this beautiful place! ” 
                                                                                                                 – Kara
“Here’s Pippa, enjoying the magical beauty of the Urban Forest 🦋🌿🥀🌳💖 ”

                                                                                                   – Michele

“We’ve moved from Huntington Beach but still love to come back and visit the Urban Forest. I’ve been coming here for 17 years and seen all the beautiful changes. Max likes that there are more squirrels here than ever! ”  

                                                                                                   – Martina



“Our dogs (Laney and Miley)
love the smells in the Urban Forest
and checking in on the horses at the
(adjacent) sanctuary.”
                                            – Janet
“Ivy and Ollie absolutely love exploring the intriguing sights and scents of the Urban Forest. They’re especially captivated by the hummingbirds, butterflies, squirrels and lizards we regularly encounter during our adventures there.”
                                       – David & Cathy

“Fina loves visiting the Urban Forest. On walks here we’d encounter volunteers hard at work, looking like they could use some help in this massive area to maintain. Now that I’m a volunteer, I’ve found it’s quite a work-out. Fina’s happy to sit and watch.”

                                                                                  – Jeff

“Maggie enjoys a ‘taste of mustard’ on our afternoon walk through the Urban Forest.”
                                                                      – Cheryl

People and pups love to explore the Urban Forest!

When dogs and the people they own come to this wonderland, they discover lots of space to play, exercise, socialize and breathe fresh ocean air, year-round.
