    Great park

    There are 2 ponds of really good size for dogs to swim in. There are multiple areas to enter the ponds. The path is black pavement which a slight downer, especially during these hot summers.There is water fountains, and even a hose just outside one of the entry points to spray of pond water. The fencing is a cattle fencing, so no worries about your dog escape if they disappear into the bushes. I love this park, I just wish it wasn't a 50 minute drive from my house.

    Great Park

    We took our 5 mo old GSP here a couple of weeks ago for the first time. This park is HUGE and entirely fenced. The entrance areas (there are 2) have double gated entries to use to put on/take off leashes before entering or exiting the park. There are two restrooms just outside of the entry ways and water fountains. There are two ponds w/in the park. There are warning signs about possible bacteria so if your dog enjoys the water make sure they get a good scrub down at home and try not to let them drink it. The walking trail that goes around the perimeter is just over a mile. There is a fee to access this park but it is worth it. It's $7 to get into Chatfield park, and $2 to get to use the dog park. You can purchase a yearly Colorado Parks Pass for $70, and a yearly dog park pass for $20. If you plan on visiting 10 times over the course of the year it's totally worth it.
