  • Dogs love the great outdoors as much as we do.

Bear Creek Dog Park

21st and West Rio Grande streets,
Shade, benches, water fountains and bathrooms for humans and 25 acres of fenced-in roaming for puppers, with a giant creek and an agility course.

Red Rock Canyon Open Space

3550 W. High St.,
While not technically a dog park, the Upper and Lower Dog Loops allow leash-free roaming. Each is about a mile long and offers a variety of terrain for exercise.

Palmer Park Dog Park

3650 Maizeland Road,
It’s not the fanciest of the city’s parks, but it gives Eastside doggos a solid place to roam free between leashed hikes on the numerous nearby trails.

Fox Run Dog Park

2110 Stella Drive,
In the southeast corner of Fox Run Regional Park, find five fenced acres of leash-free happiness with a loop trail (, shady woods and benches.

Falcon Dog Park

11050 Eastonville Road,
Falcon’s newest 8-acre park has the added benefit of an additional 2-acre spot for smaller dogs to run without their giant friends lovingly trampling them by accident.

Still to come …

Duckwood Dog Park, 2010 Duckwood Road,
Southeast residents and their pups can look forward to a snazzy 3-acre space in Fountain Creek Regional Park in the near future.
