Along with it's many animal rescue groups, long history of veterinary excellence, and high rate of pet ownership, Colorado is full of pet-friendly attractions. The town of Englewood is no exception, so if you're looking for a place to spend some quality time with Fido, you've come to the right place.
Englewood may be a town of under 35,000 people, but it's home to a whopping five separate dog parks. Centennial Park has a large off-leash dog area, but it's not fenced-in, so only well-trained and obedient dogs should venture in. The Northwest Greenbelt Off-Leash Area and the Duncan Park Off-Leash Area are both clean, well-kept parks where your pooch is welcome to play, although those areas are also not fully fenced.
If you're in search of a fully fenced park, Englewood has two fantastic options. Jason Dog Park offers benches and shade trees, as well as a spacious running area. Englewood Canine Corral is the local favorite, revered for the friendly and attentive regulars.
Englewood has several beautiful trails to enjoy. On-leash dogs are welcome on the High Line Canal Trail, which was formerly used to deliver irrigation water in the 1800's. Today, the 66-mile trail offers access to historic landmarks, gorgeous views, and modern amenities like picnic tables and restrooms. The Mary Carter Greenway is another option, having won several awards, including one from the American Planning Association. This 8-mile path is sure not to disappoint.
