Denver currently has 12 dog parks for park users to enjoy. All visitors must adhere to posted rules and regulations. Dog bag dispensers are available at all dog parks and patrons are asked to help keep them stocked.

*Railyard Dog Park is the only off-leash area with lighting, however, other facilities may be indirectly lit by athletic fields or street lights.

Deteriorating conditions due to accumulating pet waste, holes from digging, etc. may result in a closure of a dog park. DPR established the Adopt-A-Dog Park program to enable civic groups, neighbors, individuals and businesses to help keep their local dog park clean. To organize a volunteer group, fill out the Adopt-a-Dog Park Agreement and return to firstname.lastname@example.org.
