    The worst thing about moving away has been that I can't take my dogs here every day. They get less exercise, and I have gained 20lbs.

    This park is good for dog and human exercise. The trail around the outside is about 2.5 miles, and there are smaller routs to take too. There is a river, that at times is either almost dried up, or flowing too fast I won't let my dogs in, but most of the time it is great. There are some shady areas for you to cool off, but most of the area is a field. You don't have to worry about rattle snakes because it has been a dog park for so long they are no longer around.

    When it is busy, like a Saturday in the summer, the north parking lot can be better to use, as long as you get through the main park gates before about 10:30 am, which is when the line to get in starts to grow.

    There are outhouses by both entrances, but a water fountain only at the south one.

    Love this place

    One of my fav dog parks in my travels. Although it's not fully fenced, my dogs do well here. There are so many pups and the trails to walk are great. Love stopping here when passing thru in Denver.

    Great Place but not for everyone!

    I would like to know if there are rules which state if your dog is mean they are not allowed? Upon entering for out first time, with our 5 month old pup on a leash, a gentleman told us to take our pup off the leash that is what dogs need to do, is run and have fun. I explained it was our first time here and not sure of other dogs behavior. A little later while our pup was off leash, two boxers came running towards him and then attacked our dog. The elderly woman just called out to the dogs which didn't listen as my pup was crying and laid down then ran as they continued to attack him. I finally grabbed my pup as I fell to the ground clinging on to him for life, shaking uncontrollably. She proceeded to walk off without a word. I will never return again because of people. The park is beautiful and wish peoples ignorance would have not made this a bad experience for pup and me.

    Not fully enclosed

    This is a huge park, however we have 2 huskies who can sprint to the river in 6 seconds. They play in the river and love it, but one day they exited the park on the other side of the river and luckily someone caught them and called us. This is .4 miles from our home and now we can no longer go there.

    Best Day Ever

    A doggy paradise. Definitely enter off Parker for easiest access. Bring water on hot days. The fastest way to the creek area is directly across from the entry.

    My dog's Idea of heaven

    I have 2 boxers and they LOVE coming here. It's a perfect place for them to run free, with plenty of water to cool them down. The creek sometimes dries out in the summer, but the naturally fed spring provides a great watering hole. Buying the yearly pass is work every penny! There are 2 ways to enter the park. Best entrance is off parker road, where you can park and have immediate access to the park. The other access is inside of the state park and you have to walk on leash for about 1/2 a mile before arriving to entrance. very hard to do with 2 excited dogs who know where they are going!

    Great place for Dogs!

    This park is clean and large with a lot of roaming room for dogs. The water is a fun treat as dogs are able to play together and cool off on hot summer days.

    Best dog park we've ever visited

    We stay at Cherry Creek State Park campground when we visit Denver. Your visitor sticker and annual dogpark permit ($78) get you in to the Country's finest off-leach dog park. One hundred twenty acres of prairie with a treed river bottom at the west boundary, crisscrossed with extensive trails. Morning and evening you'll see about a hundred well-behaved dogs. A delight. Our dogs look forward to it.

    This park is wonderful. You can walk along the creek or through the big open field. The only draw back is when the snow melts or it rains the trails can get really muddy, but my dog hasn't seem to mind that at all. Just bring towels.
