Whether it is to help keep your dog cool with some water during Arizona’s summer months or to let him run around during the cooler Fall months, there are many "off-leash" dog parks around Phoenix.

Dogs are allowed at parks outside of the off-leash areas. However, they must be tied to a leash.
Please note: Arizona law requires dog leashes be limited to no more than six feet.

QUICK & FRIENDLY DOG PARK RULES TO REMEMBER

  • Please pick up after your pet. Bags/trash cans are provided at almost all parks.
  • Make sure your pet is licensed and vaccinated.
  • Make sure your dog is voice-trained, courteous around other dogs and owners.
