Is your canine companion a bundle of boundless energy? Then take them to the West Arvada Dog Park to blow off steam! With acres upon acres of open space for off-leash play and exercise, even the most energetic dogs will be tuckered out after a visit here!
The West Arvada Dog Park is a special use park located at the edge of the city. Operated by volunteers and funded entirely by donations, its most striking feature is perhaps its sheer size—pet parents can also get a good workout walking around this expansive site. The whole area is fenced, and there are separate enclosures for shy, small, or new dogs, so no matter which part you’re in, you can rest assured that your pooch is in a secure environment.
Agility equipment is available during the warmer months, while year-round amenities include water fountains, water bowls, waste bag dispensers, trash cans, benches, shade structures, and picnic tables. There is also a walking path along the perimeter of the park, and many pet parents take advantage of this feature to get some exercise themselves. The full loop spans a little over half a mile, and you and Fido can enjoy puptastic mountain views as you get your steps in.
Since the West Arvada Dog Park is mostly an open field, there is very little shade, so you’ll want to avoid going during the hottest times of the day. Remember to clean up after your pooch and be mindful of others. While regular users and volunteers do their best to keep the bag dispensers stocked, they sometimes run out, so it’s a good idea to bring your own supply. Also, make sure your pup has their dog license before you visit; the annual licensing fee is $20 per pet.
For leash-free fun in Arvada, you can’t go wrong with the West Arvada Dog Park!
If Fido needs to learn some dog park petiquette, consider booking an in-home dog training session with Wag! before you visit.
