Dog Park Favorites!

The cities and town of Northern Colorado are full of parks, including city parks, neighborhood parks, dog parks and more. Each community has it’s own character which is reflected in it’s parks. The lifeblood of Fort Collins, for instance, is the Poudre River and many parks dot its shores. Without further adieu here are some dog park favorites!

Boardwalk Community Park

Located at 100 N. 5th Street along the shores of Windsor Lake.
Windsor, Colorado

This 12-acre park has a something for everyone. The kids will love the state-of-the-art playground, while adults will enjoy access to the lake, walking trails and shelters for picnicking. History buffs can amuse themselves by touring the Windsor Museum at Boardwalk Park – a collection of four historic buildings, including Windsor’s original train station and a pioneer church.

Spring Canyon Park

Located at 2626 W. Horsetooth Road in southwest Fort Collins. Parking is on the north and south sides of the park.
Fort Collins, Colorado

This 100-acre park took 20 months to construct, but it was worth the wait. It features InspirationPlayground, Colorado’s first universally accessible playground, a two-acre dog park with a pond where Fido can take a swim, and a free-ride mountain biking course. The park also includes all the traditional amenities of a park, such as picnic areas and ball fields. Spring Canyon Park also connects the city’s paved trail system with Spring Creek Trail and Fossil Creek Trail connecting in the park.
