“The Cheyenne Park Off-Leash Area (OLAopened on November 17, 2001 after about a year-and-a-half of hard work by a dedicated group of people who were the first K9COLA members. The Park's been popular from the beginning, with over 500 annual permits sold the first year! The Park offers a public space where people and their dogs can play, train, and exercise together without the dogs being leashed. You might find people practicing obedience, tracking, or hunting retrieves, or simply jogging with their dogs or enjoying a game of fetch. The Park provides opportunities for dogs to learn human-dog and dog-dog socialization skills, which will make them better citizens and neighbors. Elderly or disabled dog owners can come to the Park, which provides an accessible and safe place for them to exercise their canine companions. It's also a great place for dog owners to meet other dog lovers, to talk and exchange information. The Cheyenne Park OLA is a City park and the major maintenance work (mowing, major repairs, etc.) is done by the City Parks Department. The Park, located at 1500 Cedar Bend Lane, Ely, IA 52227 (about 1/4 mile up the road from Cedar Rapids Animal Control), is completely fenced and consists of about 18 acres, which include an entry area (where you'll find the Information Kiosk, the daily Honor Permit box, and the human-dog drinking fountain), a one-and-a-half acre Training Yard, a one acre Small Dog Yard, and the main Park, divided about evenly between a large open mown area and a wild area through which the Parks Department mows paths. There is a perimeter path around the entire fenceline, graveled (and accessible for most wheelchairs during dry weather) in the open area and mown in the wild area. Plenty of parking is available, and there is a Port-A-Jonny available outside the gate in the parking area. ”

Great Place

Although a little destroyed by the flood, its still a great place to let your dog run! Rocky has met so many dog friends here and all the people are friendly!

Awesome Dog Park!

This is a well cared for, wonderful off leash park! It's great to let you dog run, socialize and get them acclimated to other dogs and people! I only wish we would have found it before when we had Putter! He would have loved it!
