Devon's Dog Park is a public dog park located at the Greenland Open Space trailhead in Douglas, Colorado. In addition to the large dog park, the 3,000-acre Greenland Open Space features an 11-mile trail system, picnic shelters and benches, public restrooms, parking, and even a horse obstacle course.
It is the perfect location for a scenic hike with your canine buddy as the various trails that run through the land go through a wide range of terrain, from beautiful ponds and rolling hills to native grasslands and wooded areas. The 17-acre dog park was created in 2008 and can be found on the east side of the trailhead, by the parking lot.
Devon's Dog Park at the Greenland Open Space is securely fenced and provides plenty of room for canines to roam and explore. However, since this is a walking park, owners are expected to walk with their dogs while in the off-leash area as it is too large to keep track of them from one of the few benches in the park.
The layout of Devon's Dog Park at the Greenland Open Space consists of a long, narrow open space where dogs of all breeds and sizes are allowed to roam freely with their owners. It is a great place for off-leash exercise, but since there are not many dogs there throughout the week, it is not the best place for canine socialization.
However, dog owners are welcome to schedule play dates at the dog park, use the agility equipment available to train their dogs or simply use the park for peaceful walks with their furry best friend. Though there are some trees growing in the off-leash area, there is not much shade here, so you may want to put on some sunscreen.
The park's surface is made up of grass and dirt, so packing a towel is a good idea if you visit during rainier weather. It is equipped with a waste bag dispenser and trash cans located at the entrance, so please be sure you are cleaning up after your four-legged friend if you visit. There is also a portable restroom by the entrance for owners.
