The Silverbell-Cortaro Dog Park is an off-leash dog park in Marana, Arizona. Part of the Silverbell District Park, this fenced-in compound is reserved for the sole purpose of letting dogs get some exercise without being restricted by their leashes and without worry of them being able to run away.
This dog park in Marana is a favorite place for local pet owners to take their dogs to socialize with other canines and is maintained to a good standard. There is a decent sized parking lot right by the double-gated staging area as well as a gazebo-type shelter with benches, on the outside of the park's perimeter fencing, where anyone who doesn't want to go inside can sit and watch the dogs play.
At the Silverbell-Cortaro Dog Park, there is a separate section for small breeds weighing less than forty pounds. Both this part, as well as the large dog area, have compacted dirt surfaces with a covering of small grade gravel. There area few small trees in both off-leash areas, which are protected from dogs using them for communal scenting by wire mesh.
Owners are limited to exercising a maximum of three pups each at the Silverbell-Cortaro Dog Park, none of which can be under four months old. The off-leash areas are kept well stocked with poop disposal bags, and there are water spigots although owners should take their dog a personal drinking bowl particularly in hot weather as the park can get dry and dusty.
