Connor's Bog Dog Park is a sprawling area of countryside on the outskirts of the city of Anchorage in Alaska. It is a multi-use park as well as an off-leash dog park. There is a parking lot off Jewel Lake Road which has space for around twenty vehicles.
The Connor's Bog Dog Park has an extensive acreage of woodland intersected by trails which are all usable as off-leash areas for dogs most of the time. One section is closed off to dog access in the winter after the trails running through it have been prepared for skijoring. The year-round off-leash area is still immense and borders Connor's Lake.
The Connor's Bog Dog Park is not enclosed in any way and there is no special section for small dogs. This is a proper, outdoor, back to nature dog park. Poop bag dispensers are distributed throughout many of the trails and owners are requested to clean up after their dogs. Carrying extra bags is also advised. There are no water fountains around the park so owners are advised to arrive adequately provisioned with bottled water and drinking bowl for their dog.
The Connor's Bog Dog Park is a great place to give a dog some space and really let them run free, but pet owners should be aware that there are wild animals in and around the Connor's Bog Dog Park. Moose and bears can often be seen alongside the trails feeding. It's advisable to understand and practice the correct human and dog procedures when using the area.
The park's official website gives information on moose safety and other wildlife issues. On occasion, entrance into certain areas of the park or around the shores of the lake will be restricted due to nesting birds or breeding wildlife. Owners should also be aware there are beavers in the lake and they can be aggressive towards dogs.
