10 Amazing Off-Leash Dog Parks in Denver, CO You Can Visit Today (2024 Update)

If you’re a dog owner living in or visiting Denver with your dog, you’ll be happy to know that the city owns and operates several dog parks. Most are free to visit but require your dog to be fully vaccinated and spayed/neutered unless they’ve obtained an intact permit from the city.

While you might have to pay a little to visit some parks, the privately owned properties have a few more perks than the free ones, including the Belleview Station Dog Park that’s located beside a dog-friendly beer garden, and the 100+ acre Cherry Creek Off-Leash Area in nearby Aurora. Here are the top 10 places you and your dog won’t want to miss next time you’re in the Mile High City.
