Dog Off-Leash Area
The 30-acre off-leash area includes a fenced open area, a small pond and a looped trail. The off-leash area is a maintained grass field with varied levels of terrain. There are also tall shade trees and a grassy play area. The looped trails system is a combination of both paved and hiking trails, with a portion of the trail being accessible.
The off-leash area has two paved accessible parking spots near each of the three gated entrances into the off-leash area. The parking lot and restroom are located near the S Black Bob Road and West 161st entrance. The off-leash parking, gates, sidewalks, restrooms, and drinking fountains are ADA compliant.
Weekly maintenance is scheduled every Tuesday from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. from March 1 - October 31 and 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. from November 1 - February 28. Closures are intended to allow for a higher level of maintenance to the area without compromising dog, patron, and staff safety.
