Future Dog Parks

It is the intent of Park Planning staff to build dog parks throughout the city to allow more areas where dog owners can safely allow their pets off-leash.

Dog parks are also being planned for the northeast and northwest parts of town. Their construction and completion will come about as funding and resources are made available.
