Walk the Cherry Creek Dog Off-Leash Area

Colorado Cherry Creek Parking Lot

Added by Korey Taylor

Enjoy a stroll along the 3 mile loop within the 107 acre fenced-in Cherry Creek Off-leash area. This is one of the best dog parks in the Denver metro area.

Cherry Creek Dog-Off Leash Area is an extended part of Cherry Creek State Park and encompasses 107 acres of fenced-in play area. Within the park there is a 3 mile loop trail that takes you through the trees and along the Cherry Creek. What makes this park so great is the several access points to the river itself and the availability for your pups to go for a swim. While the river is not as utilized in the winter, my dogs still went plunging in and loved it! The park can get busy on weekends, but I was still able to find parking on a Saturday. This is such a wonderful park for being so close to the city, I highly recommend a doggy play day here!

Wonderful Place For My Dog

This was such an amazing place! The only thing I was concerned about if the lack of shade. But other than that, great walk, dogs, river and people!

Flat, Open Park

The park is well-kept and there were plenty of dogs for ours to play with. If you have a water dog, they'll love the river. The park is really flat and there aren't many trees for shade, but it would be a great place for a n easy run on a cool day.

The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
