Cheyenne Off-Leash Dog Park is located on Cedar Bend Lane SW, off Old River Road. The park consists of 13.8 acres of fenced canine recreation yards. The main yard includes walking trails, benches and a shelter as well as mowed and naturalized areas. The training yard is separately fenced for dog training and for preparing dogs socially for the main yard. The small dog yard allows smaller dogs to enjoy off-leash exercise in a more controlled environment. Amenities include water for owners and dogs and a portable restroom near the entry area to the park.
K9Acres at Squaw Creek Park
K9 Acres is located in Squaw Creek Park, 5200 Golf Course Road. It is an 11-acre fenced facility with three use areas. The largest is the Main Off-leash Yard which is approximately 8.1 acres in size, is fully grassed and includes a walking trail, waste receptacles, trees and a small park storage building. Future amenities in this area include benches and small shelters. The second largest area is the Training Yard. It is 1.8 acres in size and is also fully grassed with trees. The purpose of the Training Yard is to provide an area to train dogs that are not yet fully socialized enough to use the Main Off-leash Area. It is also used for various training classes and events. The smallest area is the 1.1 acre Small Dog Yard. This grassy area with trees provides a space for smaller dogs to run without the danger of inadvertently being hurt by larger dogs in the Main Yard. The park entrance and the Main Yard have double-gated, split entry and exit areas. The two smaller yards currently have single gates with double-gated systems planned for the future. A graveled parking lot at the front entry to the park will accommodate up to 40 cars at a time with overflow parking available on both sides of the main driveway. A restroom, a non-potable water source for dogs and a dumpster (for park waste and garbage) are available at the entrance to the park. Waste receptacles and dog bag dispensers are scattered throughout the park.
