A scenic place we have found to walk Penny is at Lakeview Park in San Marcos. There is a large pond (or small lake) to walk around with groomed paths. There is a dock (which we call "duck dock"--try and say that 3 times fast) that the ducks swim around and Penny gets so excited about all the duck smells and quacks. (Often times there are people fishing there, so watch out for hooks.) There is also a playground at the entrance to the park for kids. There is a path that we have started that leads up the mountain at one end of the lake, but we didn't finish because Penny seemed tired--maybe we were a bit tired too :)--so next time we plan to go all the way up! A great place to take a dog for a walk--so calm and peaceful!
