The Gateway Dog Park is an off-leash dog park in El Mirage, Arizona. There are parking spaces available on W Cinnabar Avenue right in front of the entrances for both the large and small dog areas. Parking a vehicle correctly and keeping a pup leashed until inside the designated zone is advisable as the El Mirage Police Department is also located on the same street.
This dog park in El Mirage, which is in the city's Gateway Park, is enclosed with metal railings to provide a secure environment for exercising members of the local canine society off-leash. Visitors to El Mirage are also welcome to use the facility provided their dogs, the same as resident ones, have completed their vaccinations and are parasite free.
Both off-leash dog runs have central islands which have been sown with grass and are surrounded by wide dirt borders planted with trees. Waste receptacles and water fountains are situated near the gated staging areas. All users of the dog park facility in El Mirage are requested to abide by the rules and help keep the dog park a great place for all to use.
Don't leave a dog alone, not even for two minutes while getting some forgotten item from the car. Don't bring youngsters to the dog park unless they are going to be well supervised and know exactly how to behave in an off-leash area. Don't bring food or treats, that's just asking for trouble and if a dog doesn't like sharing its toys, don't bring those to the dog park either.
Do bring poop bags and do pick up all the excrement that your canine creates at the Gateway Dog Park. Be amicable to other dog park users. Dogs pick up and copy their owner's vibes. Grumpy, bad mannered pet parents and their dogs should stay home until their mood improves.
