Has your doggo been lying around the house all day? Then load ‘em up and pay a visit to this furrific off leash area! Located inside Margaret T. Hance Park, this doggy play zone is just calling your pup’s name!
When they arrive, your pupster can leave the leash behind
and run free. Large breeds have about three quarters of an acre to sniff around
while petite pooches have just under a quarter of an acre. That’s plenty of
room for romping, wrestling, and a little bit of roughhousing. Since this is a
pupular park, your pooch will always be greeted with new four legged playmates.
Your pup will have a ball getting to know new furriends while expending some
pent up energy.
Both the small dog and large dog areas are ADA accessible
and have shaded seating for pet parents. They also have drinking
water for thirsty canine visitors. A few young trees are scattered around the
park. These give your pup something to sniff (and mark), but they don’t offer
much shade. As with any outdoor activity in Phoenix, make sure you keep your
eye on the temperature. The dog days of summer are just too hot for doggos to
be running around outside. The City of Phoenix knows that four legged friends
still need to exercise during the warmer months. Furtunately the park is open
until 9:00 p.m., so you can bring your pal for a visit after the hottest hours
of the day.
Do your part to keep the park smelling fresh by picking
up any doggy debris. After your pupster is finished playing, clip on their
leash and check out the main area of Hance Park. There are some pawsome walking
trails to discover.
Make no mistake, a visit to this dog park will make your
pooch barking happy!
