CO-95, Denver, CO 80212
Berkeley Dog Park is located in Berkeley Lake Park on the west end of the park. There are separate sections to divide large dogs and small dogs as well as four massive water tanks so no pup goes thirsty. Enjoy the 1.1-mile loop that surrounds the park, a perfect cool-down lap after your pup has been running their heart out trying to chase what…? A ball, a person, a dog? Who knows. Get out and enjoy the park and when you’re done take a short stroll over to Tennyson Street and find a local bar that is more than happy to let you and your friend hang on the patio!
Chatfield Dog Park, Littleton, CO 80125
This is one of many dog parks in the Denver Metro Area where your pup can go for a swim in one of the two ponds on the 69-acre dog park! Enjoy a paved trail and a dirt trail that allows all dogs to be off-leash and explore the area around them. Not to steer anyone the wrong way, but this park does cost $3 a day or $25 a year to have access to the dog park, considering that it is located within a State Park. I bet if you asked your dog, they would say it is worth it!
Barnum Dog Park, Denver, CO 80204
This newest dog park in Denver is Barnum Dog Park— it opened in late 2017 and is located off 6th Avenue and Federal Blvd. If you are living in Sloan’s Lake or West Colfax, this is the largest off-leash dog park within 3-miles of your home! This park is three-quarters of an acre and has two separate areas for dogs depending on their energy levels, in hopes to keep hyper dogs and sniffers only separate from one another. Enjoy great Denver skyline views and enjoy the community you will quickly get to know!
