Park Location

General Information

The West Arvada Dog Park opened on June 18, 2005. It is a "Special Use" park. It is operated by volunteers on City-owned property and is funded 100% through donations. Happy, healthy dogs make a happy healthy community. When dogs have the chance to exercise, socialize and play, they become better members of the community. Incidents of animal surrender, animal control citations, and other unwanted behavior diminishes. Please note: a dog license is required for dog park usage.
