    #1 Alhambra

    Dogs in Alhambra are in luck! This area of Phoenix has two good sized dog parks to choose from. In Washington Park lies PETsMART Dog Park, 2.5 acres of space where hounds can run free. There are sections for both large and small dogs to keep play fair, and there is ample seating in both sections for owners to relax and enjoy their time at the park. Watering stations and poop bags are on site, so you don't need to worry about bringing your own. This park has a tendency to get very muddy if the weather has been wet and sometimes must be closed due to flooding. The Rose Mofford Sports Complex also has a fenced in dog area, sharing most of the amenities as the PETsMART Dog Park. One different feature at this park is the walking path; a perfect way to get some exercise with your pup!
