USMC Cpl. David M. Sonka Dog Park

17855 Pine Lane

Parker, CO 80134

A 45 acre dog park and Disc Golf Course, offering you and your pooch the perfect place to play.

Open from DAWN til DUSK (Park is unlit)

Named after Corporal David M. Sonka, who graduated from Chaparral High School, and was tragically and sadly killed in action along with his military working dog Flex.

The dog park portion of this new site is 5 acres, has a dog agility course, drinking fountains (in the summer only), a separate section just for smaller furry friends with a separate entrance, and even shade spots for resting.

Reviewers say that this park is perfect for dogs of all sizes, it has plenty of parking, and the fences, though they may appear in pictures to have large spaces in them, are actually covered with wire so it’s very secure.

This park, just a short drive from the Pinery is a quaint little spot open sunrise to sunset. This park has gotten mixed reviews – many folks rave about the lush grass and convenient location while many others complain about inconsiderate pet owners, poorly behaved dogs, and no separate spot for small dogs.

Devon’s Dog Park at Greenland Open Space (east side of trailhead)

1532 Noe Road

Larkspur, CO 80118

A 17 acre off-leash dog park in Doulgas County

Created as part of Devon Theune’s Girl Scout Gold Award in 2008, Devon’s Dog Park is part of the Colorado Front Range Trail, an 11 mile trail system with over 3,000 of open space, with views of Pikes Peak! Dogs are allowed OFF-LEASH in the dog park section and allowed ON-LEASH on the trail. Reviewers say that this park is “fairly off the beaten path” but definitely worth the drive. During the week there are not too many dogs which means your dog may not get dog-on-dog playtime rather just room and space to run.  There is a small agility course and most folks recommend to BRING YOUR OWN WATER! While humans can do whatever they’d like while there, this park was designed to be a dog-human walking park which features a long walking trail with benches for resting. DOES NOT have a special spot for SMALL DOGS.

Fairgrounds Regional Park Dog Park

500 Fairgrounds Drive

A 37 acre park with an off-leash dog park in the eastern corner with easy access from the main entrance. This simple yet clean spot is well liked by visitors who suggest to bring your own water. There are 2 sides to the park and these are open one at a time, in a rotating fashion. Nearby to on-leash walking trails too!

Glendale Farm Open Space Dog Park (((AMAZING DOG PARK)))

12300 S Havana Street

Castle Rock, CO 80108

Located adjacent to 1-25 off of exit 188 Castle Pines

This 17 acre Dog Park, located inside of the 145 acre Glendale Open Space property, will maybe be your dog’s favorite park and we can say this from personal experience. Though this is a bit of a drive from Parker central, this awesome place has tons, LITERALLY tons of room to roam, great views, a few doggie-obstacles, dirt paths (good for Fido’s feet), and a friendly environment. FYI, there is a huge pond/mud hole that the dogs enjoy WAY too much – better to bring a towel (or two) just in case. All in all this is a great place to spend time outdoors.

A couple useful tips for having a paw-sitively wonderful time at any dog park:

  • ALWAYS pick up after your dog – failure to do so in Douglas County will result in a $50 fine
  • Consider exercising your dog a bit BEFORE going on dog-park-date if she or he has been pinned up all day long. A dog park is a highly sensatory place and some dogs need a bit of decompression time before being thrown in to the dog-end of things!
  • Help make sure your dog is being polite – allowing your pup to run full speed at a new dog entering the park, allowing your dog to mount another dog in dominance, etc. can create unnecessary issue. Let’s all be mindful pet owners, and on that note …
  • ALWAYS keep an eye on your dog just in case any pooches play a bit too rough
  • Be sure to remove any prong collars, metal spike collars, etc. before playing
  • If your girl dog is in heat or pregnant, better to stay home and have 1-on-1 time together
  • If your pup is less than 12 weeks old or hasn’t had its full round of shots, most vets recommend skipping dog parks
