The City Council adopted Bark Park Rules in January 2017.  The Bark Park rules enforce unwanted behavior or questionable usage, and are in the best interests of health, safety, and general welfare of the park users.  

Enforcement of the Bark Park Rules will be through the issuance of administrative citations.  Under the Town’s existing Chapter 2.07, the Colma Police are authorized to issue administrative citations for any violations of any park rules and regulations.

Chapter 8 of the Colma Municipal Code includes all of the Town ordinances regarding animals: 

  • The Town allows normal domestic pets such as dogs and cats.

    • Livestock
    • Feeding of birds in public places
    • Chickens – Unless at least 500 feet from the nearest residence.
