Would you like to give your Larimer County dog a special fun day? Why not take him to a park? Dogs love to explore new faces and meet new friends, both those on four legs and on two. As long as your dog is properly socialized and friendly to other dogs, bringing him to a park will really give him a special treat.
Here are a few suggestions for dog parks in Larimer County:
Fossil Creek Dog Park 5821 S. Lemay Ave., Fort Collins, CO 80525
Admission is free at this dog park. Fido can run and play off leash to his little heart’s content. Separate sections are available for small dogs and shy pooches, and there are drinking fountains for both you and your furry pal.
Spring Canyon Dog Park West End of Horsetooth Rd., Fort Collins, CO 80525
This is a very popular dog park. Affiliated with the Larimer County Humane Society, the park is over 2 acres, and is fenced in. There is a separate area for little dogs and shy dogs. Water fountains for both you and Fido are available as well.
Soft Gold Dog Park 520 Hickory St., Fort Collins, CO 80524
Fido can run freely off leash in this fenced one-acre park. Covered seating is available for you to sit in the shade while your pup romps and plays with his new buddies. There is also water available on site. There is no fee for entrance.
Estes Valley Dog Park N. St. Vrain Ave. & Community Drive, Estes Park, CO 80517
Dogs may go off leash in the enclosed fenced area at Estes Valley Dog Park. You can bring up to three dogs at one time.
Many parks require that you bring proof of your dog’s registration and vaccination records. We suggest keeping copies in the car at all times. Generally, rules and regulations will be posted outside the fenced areas. These are typically common sense and common courtesy regulations, forbidding people from bringing aggressive dogs to parks, and mandating that you pick up after your pooch. Most parks provide bags and trashcans for convenience.
Take advantage of these parks while summer is here, and don’t forget to bring your camera. That candid shot of your furry buddy jumping for a Frisbee or playing in the fountain just might become your favorite.
