Want to check out all the best dog parks in Denver? Be sure to add Fuller Dog Park to your list of must-visit destinations. Located just a couple of miles northeast of the city center, this pupular park is a hotspot for big-city canines looking to run, play, sniff, and make new friends.
The park is fully fenced and has 2 separate areas, but the distinction between these two play zones is a little different to most other dog parks. Instead of areas for small and large dogs, Fuller Dog Park has areas for "high energy" and "low energy" puppers. The high energy section is the larger and more pupular zone which can get quite busy in the afternoons following work.
The park's sandy surface offers ample space for off-leash fun, and while this isn't the largest off-leash area you're ever likely to find, its size is quite reasonable when you consider its inner-city location. Of course, just be wary of the sand heating up in the summer sun and potentially damaging delicate paws.
While there are dog bowls in Fuller Dog Park, make sure you bring your own water so your pup can quench their thirst. The City of Denver also provides trash cans and dog bag dispensers, but park users must take responsibility for keeping the dispensers stocked. With this in mind, remember to bring a few clean-up bags with you and pick up after your dog whenever needed.
You'll also need to abide by the rules and regulations that apply to all Denver dog parks. That means your pooch will need to be up to date with their vaccinations, hold a Denver dog license, and be spayed or neutered, or have a current Denver Intact Permit.
Street parking is available nearby to ensure easy access to the park. There's not much in the way of shade, however, so apply sunscreen before visiting and keep a close eye on your dog to ensure that they don't overheat.
Aside from that, the only thing left to do is relax and enjoy watching your pup have a pawsome time playing, socializing, and just being a dog at the pawsome Fuller Dog Park!
