For off-leash romps in downtown Denver, let your pup loose at the Railyard Dog Park. Though not the biggest dog park in the city, it's convenient location makes it a popular canine hangout. If your pooch wants to expand their social circle, then this is the place to be!
The Railyard Dog Park is divided into two fenced areas: there’s a section for large and high-energy dogs, while the other is dedicated to small and low-energy pups. Both areas offer adequate space for dogs of all shapes and sizes to blow off steam, make doggie friends, or just chill sans leash. The ground surface is a soft, sandy soil instead of grass or gravel; it can get muddy when wet, so be sure to bring a towel if visiting after rain.
Other features of the park include benches, shade structures with picnic tables, and a drinking fountain for both humans and canines. You’ll need to bring your own water in the winter, however, as the fountain is turned off during the colder months. Waste bag dispensers are also available at the park, and pet parents are asked to help keep them stocked.
Since the Railyard Dog Park is the only off-leash area in the city with lighting, it closes later than the other dog parks, giving busy pet parents and their pups a chance to stretch their legs and decompress at the end of a long day. No matter what time you’re visiting, remember to be mindful of other patrons and clean up after your canine companion. All dogs must have a current rabies tag and Denver pet license, which costs $15 for one year.
With its puptastic downtown location, the Railyard Dog Park provides a safe space for four-legged Denverites to run and play without having to leave the city!
