Lowry Dog Park is located on East 4th Place & South Yosemite Way, Denver. This park is open to all dogs and their owners seven days a week, from sunrise to sundown. Before visiting the park, your dog must be spayed/neutered, licensed, and vaccinated against rabies. Keep in mind that you can only bring two dogs at a time to the park, and anyone supervising a dog must be 16 or older.
Make sure your dog is leashed on your way in and out of the park – you can remove their leash once inside. There are bins and bags provided for picking up after your dog – feel free to leave some bags behind for others if you have spares. Lowry Dog Park is spacious, shaded, and has plenty of parking outside.
Berkeley Dog Park is located on Sheridan Boulevard, adjacent to Berkeley Lake. Part of Berkeley Lake Park, Berkeley Dog Park is a gravel-based dog park that’s open seven days a week, dusk to dawn. It’s conveniently located right off the freeway and has ample parking outside. This dog park is separated into high and low energy level sections, so your dog can play with other dogs that suit their style.

Kennedy Dog Park is located in East Denver, right off the I-225 freeway. This park covers a very spacious 3-acre area, making it perfect for a game of fetch or releasing your dog’s zoomies. The surface is mostly dirt, and there isn’t a great source of water, so it’s best to bring your own for both you and your dog.

Belleview Station Dog Park is a spacious park for dogs of all shapes and sizes to enjoy. There is a large parking lot on the western side of the park, and the park itself is open daily from dawn to dusk.
