Just north of Paintbrush Park, you’ll find this quiet, fully fenced-off leash park. Let your dog loose to roam the grassy fields or guide them through the climbable obstacles. The park uses two off-leash sections that are rotated to give park maintenance time to revitalize the grass. You can also relax outside the fenced area as there are picnic tables and benches and water for when you and your dog get thirsty.

Drive down to this fenced off-leash dog park for the rustic scenery provided by 17 acres of open space. Bring your pooch’s favorite toys as there’s more than enough room to play fetch.
