Halfway between Denver and Aurora to the south, you will find the tiny community of Indian Creek. This small neighborhood is primarily mixed residential with both homes and apartments. Because of its location, the area is very quiet and, since it is not far from places to grab food or drink, it can be an ideal place to walk your dog.
Amenities for your pup are a bit harder to come by, but not much! Just to the south of Indian Creek, you will find supplies such as coats for the cold winter and your pup's favorite treats. Vets are a bit farther of a drive to the east or west, but they are only a few minutes by car.
Climate in Denver is mostly dry, a fact that surprises most people who associate this area with snow. While it does get more than its fair share of snow, you still have over 300 days of dry weather to enjoy outings.
Indian Creek is quite flat, making it a pleasure for a nice long stroll. Not everyone is out to get some exercise when they walk their dog. Sometimes it is enough for them to allow their favorite pup to just wander around and explore! Of course, the flat ground is great for those who are just starting out walking and do want to exercise as well. The gentle walk will help couch potato pups get in shape as well as to work out some of their wiggles.
You can expect to walk on concrete and there is not a lot of shade, so be sure that you are mindful of concrete temperatures in the summer. A 70-degree day is enough to make the concrete too hot for your pup's delicate feet. With a very dry climate, it can be easy to underestimate the temperature, so make sure to check it before you head out.
If this park is not big enough, then just to the northwest, you will find Cook Park which also has walking paths and a little bit more room to move around. The main loop around the park is about a mile and is surrounded with plenty of grass for your pup to explore.
If you are up for a bit of an adventure, Cherry Creek State Park has everything an avid walker and their dog could want. There are ample walking trails, some elevation changes for those wanting a good workout, and an off leash area for your pup to fully enjoy themselves.
