Scenic Foothills

If you follow the North Star, or... a road, you may find the Far North Bicentennial Park in the Scenic Foothills of Anchorage. This is the perfect place for dogs descended from Iditarod racers to get in touch with their roots on the park鈥檚 dog mushing trails! With over 4,000 acres to develop, park owners thought it was a great idea to create a special 720-acre off-leash area of trails, skiing, running, ball fields, and botanical gardens. We can't agree more! If you're not into any of the previously listed sports, perhaps mountain biking is your thing! Dogs love running next to their humans on bikes, so get out there.

Spenard

The owners of Arctic/Benson Park understand that dogs are as complex as people. No, dogs didn鈥檛 contribute to the moon landing and aren鈥檛 working on a cure for cancer, but they do have needs and feelings. That鈥檚 why this fenced-in off-leash park is open to all dogs, but has special hours for small dogs and therapy dogs. If you worry your Yorkshire Terrier would shake herself to death out of fear at a dog park but you want to socialize her, this is a great place for her to meet dogs her size. Therapy dogs sometimes have trouble socializing with other dogs because they鈥檙e trained to focus on their owner, and being around like-minded pals can be comforting. Whoever you are, you are welcome to enjoy the large open spaces, picnic tables, and playground for kids.

South Addition

The Margaret Eagan Sullivan Park could be the best park in America. Maybe that鈥檚 why the state of Alaska feels the need to keep it out of the lower 48鈥檚 reach. What began as a waterfowl sanctuary is now the site of a nature trail, trails for running, biking, skiing and snowshoeing, the Westchester Lagoon for boating and ice-skating, fitness stations, a winter Frisbee golf course, and a caf茅. Take a moment to absorb all of that. Now ask yourself, how many parks have caf茅s? What is winter Frisbee golf, and how is it different from summer Frisbee golf? We may never know the answers to these questions, but we do know that dogs are allowed at Mrs. Margaret鈥檚 Super Sullivan Park, and visiting this wonderland should be on your bucket list.

University Area

The University Lake Park in Anchorage is the perfect place to visit on your dog鈥檚 birthday. Why, you ask? Well, as a free gift to your fur-baby, this entire park is off-leash, meaning the only things dogs have to fear here are very stern looks from their owners and rogue grizzly bears. And since it鈥檚 located close to the university, college students grappling with the choice of buying a new leash for their pet or another pack of Ramen noodles can buy more noodles! Take a walk on the 1 鈪 mile trail that wraps around the perimeter of the lake while throwing sticks and snowballs. Dogs will love roaming free, meeting new friends, and sniffing all the wild, natural things that Alaska has to offer! Before you go, know that all pups must be vaccinated, waste must be picked up and any holes they dig must be filled.

Boniface Parkway

Named for a Russian immigrant by the name of 鈥淛acob Marunenko鈥, Russian Jack Springs Park is located on the east side of town just south of Glenn Highway. It鈥檚 pretty much an adventure free-for-all with an extra side of fun. Bring the whole family, dogs included, and make sure to pack jackets in the winter months. You know that ugly sweater your great aunt knitted for your Golden Retriever two Christmases ago? This is the perfect place to break in that woolen disaster, on sledding hills, cross-country skiing trails, and in the designated off-leash dog park. If your family loves sports, encourage them to try a hand at Frisbee golf or play a refresher round at the 9-hole regular golf course. Whack tennis balls, softballs, or practice goal kicks at the soccer field. If you think plants are interesting, take your dog over to the park's greenhouse and solarium for a floral sniff and a laurel whiff.
