One of the enclosures has been designated for use by dogs who are small, shy, and elderly. Here, a gentler play style more appropriate to the dogs' size, personality, and age reigns. The other play space is for larger and/or more exuberant dogs to enjoy. All owners are asked to carefully monitor all dog play time to ensure the safety of all dogs in the runs. When not housed within the safety of the fenced play zones, all dogs are to remain on a lead as is mandated by New Mexico state law.
The Carole Wheeler Dog Park is a public play facility. Entrance to the premises is freely offered to all people and their pooches at no cost. Many visitors to this park do note that the fenced areas are rather small, but they still provide ample ground for a rousing game of fetch or chase. The property offers stunning views of the nearby Turtleback Mountain range and the Rio Grande River. It is unknown what amenities are provided on the grounds for canine use. With this in mind, it is best for owners to bring drinking water, a dog dish, and clean up bags with them. All canine waste removal services must be performed by each owner. Also not known is whether or not bathrooms are housed on the property.
To enter this dog park, your pup requires proof of a current rabies vaccination, and a city dog license is also advised. Looking for a great New Mexico park to explore? Bring Fido for a play date at Carole Wheeler Dog Park!
