Tanner Park is about 8 miles from Canyon Rim, but it’ll feel like you are hiking in the wilderness. There are lots of different trails that lead you up and down hills. The canyon below has a decent sized creek where you can get off of your leash and run and splash. Be careful, because during certain parts of the year the current can be very fast and dangerous. This is a spacious area where you are sure to make new fur friends and enjoy an adventure in the great outdoors. What are you waiting for? Come and get some fresh air.
Parley's Nature Reserve is a gem that is hidden away from the rest of the city. It is like a quiet oasis in the middle of a hectic world. You and your dog can enjoy the miles and miles of open trails. There is a single river that runs all the way through it as well. The swimming hole at the end of the trails is open for both humans and dogs to swim in. There are some areas where you must keep your dog on his leash, but plenty of the park is off-leash space that is just for Fido to enjoy with his new fur-iends.
Memory Grove is the place to bring your dog to make new memories and friends. It is only about 20 minutes from Canyon Rim and has a ton to offer. It is definitely the place to come if you enjoy the water and want to splash around and play. Just make sure you bring a towel, ‘cause no one likes the smell of wet dog. Your puptastic pal can walk the trails and bark at the trees. There are also many spaces where Fido can play off his leash. This well-maintained park has plenty of cleaning stations and waste stations so that you don’t have to worry about being a litterbug!

Just 13 miles from Canyon Rim is Dimple Dell Nature Park. This is an on-leash park that offers you and Fido lots of trails to walk. These trails are part of a natural ravine system.

Your dog must keep up after you and there are no waste receptacles in the park. There is lots of wildlife to see and it would be a great place to take lots of pictures, so remember to bring a camera.
