Cañon City is a popular destination in Colorado, thanks to its scenic landscapes, tropical-like weather year-round, and numerous outdoor adventures. The town's motto is even the "Getaway to the Authentic West", which shows off its small-town appearance. Many tourists also bring their pups along with them, thanks to all the dog-friendly outdoor adventures and the 8 animal hospitals the town provides.

The Arkansas Riverwalk Dog Park is right in the center of town, and offers picturesque views of the river and the mountains that surround the area. The park itself is 2 acres and fenced-in, with a covered pavilion, sandpit with agility equipment, open areas, and dirt trails. Dogs are welcome off-leash and have access to additional features like trash bins, benches, water fountains, and clean-up stations.

The Royal Gorge Bridge and Park is a famous tourist attraction which hosts America's longest suspension bridge. The park and bridge are dog-friendly to leashed pups who want to take a walk with their owners, and even provides free kennels for park goers to hold your dog while you walk around. There is a fee to enter the park, but there is access to clean-up bags, benches, and water fountains.

Canon City is the perfect outdoor experience for residents, visitors, and pups alike!
