Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge, once a historic dairy farm, is a 2,000-acre wildlife refuge located just north of the city center. Leashed dogs and their humans will enjoy the miles of maintained walking and multi-use trails and the pastoral scenes of farm fields and historic dairy buildings. In addition to the trails, visitors can enjoy seasonal guided hikes, viewing platforms, and a visitor center and gift shop within the farmhouse. Dogs must remain leashed at all times, and humans must clean up after their dogs.

Arctic/Benson Park

Fenced dog park with designated and street parking. Dedicated hours for small dogs and therapy dogs.

University Lake Dog Park

X
One of the best dog parks I've ever been to. It's not fenced, it is a trail that circles around University Lake. All types of squirrels, birds and fish can be seen on a daily basis. Other animals that can be encountered are moose, otters, beavers and occasionally even a bear in the spring. It's 1 1/3 miles around the lake so it makes a perfect walk for owner and pet. People are friendly and the dogs pretty darn well behaved.

South Anchorage Sports Park

The South Anchorage Sports Park features a dog park along with an American Legion baseball field, two little league fields, a RC track, and paintball fields. Dogs must be leashed in all areas of the park with the exception of the dog park.
