The Forsberg/Iron Spring Dog Park is located in Lakewood, Colorado. This dedicated dog space bears the distinction of being Lakewood's first off-leash park. Situated next to Green Mountain, this picturesque property affords visitors breathtaking views and spacious grounds for dogs and their owners to enjoy.
Comprised of 2.5 acres of land, Forsberg/Iron Spring Dog Park has both fenced play spaces for your dog and unfenced sections for hiking, biking, and other activities. Two fenced runs are housed on the grounds where Fido and his favorite friends can run, cavort, and roughhouse to their hearts' delight all without the need for a leash.
One of the two enclosures has been designated as an area for small, senior, or shy dogs where a gentler play style is adopted. Though off-leash play is the focus of Forsberg/Iron Spring Dog Park, owners must keep a leash with them at all times as a safety measure. Forsberg/Iron Spring Dog Park proudly offers entrance to their facilities free of charge.
However, a city dog license is required to access the grounds. Housed within the dog play spaces. The well-equipped dog runs contain water to quench Fido's thirst after a rousing run. However, water is only available seasonally. During the winter months, owners should bring water and a dog dish with them to the park.
The enclosures themselves are situated on a hill, making the terrain conducive to a great workout. They also contain agility equipment to help keep Fido's brain and body well-stimulated. Poop bags are provided on the premises via dispensers. Park officials expect all owners will clean up after their dogs.
Visitors to this beautiful dog playground praise the park's spacious enclosures and rocky landscape; however, they do remark that the park itself is very muddy after any amount of rainfall. In the unfenced family portions of the park, visitors will find bathrooms, picnic tables, sun shelters, and barbecues all available for public use. There is also an on-site indigenous plant exhibit and a sandbox.
Dogs visiting this space must bear tags on their collars which show proof of vaccinations, city dog licensing, and identification. Park officials prohibit food and alcohol on the grounds. For a day reconnecting with nature, bring Fido and the family to Forsberg/Iron Spring Dog Park!
