Dog Parks Near Louisville, Boulder, Superior and Lafayette

For so many people living in condos and town homes like The Walnut, The Peloton, Landmark Lofts, One Penn Place, Northfield Commons / Northfield Village, and Dakota Ridge, and other Boulder condo communities,  it’s more important than ever to know where are great places to have fun with your dog.

These days it seems people are willing to spend time and money on their pets beyond what they might spend on themselves or their kids. It’s no wonder with the unconditional love and dedication so many of us get from our pets.

The biggest hurdle for pet owners (sorry, guardians to those of us in Boulder), is to find places to take our dogs to run free without the concerns of the general public, and in a safe environment.

There are actually at least almost a dozen ‘officially dog-friendly’ areas in Boulder, and several more in the surrounding communities.

Just to make it easy for you, here’s a tip from the City of Boulder website about dog rules:

All dog parks are within the city limits of Boulder and city ordinances are enforced. Leash laws do apply to all areas as you approach or exit the dog parks, whether walking home or to your parked vehicle (think of your dog’s safety and protection). Aggressive animals are prohibited and should not be brought to dog parks. In all areas, guardians are responsible for picking up and removing pet excrement. This is not only the law, but helps to keep dog parks clean, water sources uncontaminated, and your shoes free of unwanted smells! See Rules and Manners for more information.
