We love our furry friends, which is why it is so important to keep our dogs healthy, happy and active. Dog parks are a great place to bring your pup to exercise, engage and socialize with other dogs, as well as provide a healthy and safe place for learning and training. Below is a list of great locations to bring your dog for a workout, afternoon stroll or simply for a little playtime!

The City of Boulder Voice and Sight Tag Program allows dogs to access designated trails off leash if they display special participation tags and they are under “voice and sight control” of their guardians at all times. In 2015, new program changes went into effect requiring all program participants to complete an education class, verify a City of Boulder dog license or rabies vaccination for all dogs participating in the program and pay revised program fees. Applies only to certain City of Boulder lands where having a dog on a leash is not required. On-leash control is always required within the city limits of Boulder except in specially designated dog parks or other areas specifically exempted from this requirement. All trails posted as requiring a leash prohibit the use of voice and sight control.
