Top 5 Best Dog Parks From Around the Country

January 12, 2021

Did you know there’s been a 40% increase in the number of US dog parks in the past decade?

Of course, not all dog parks are created equal. Some are little more than a fenced-in area surrounded by city streets.

To find some truly epic dog parks, you may need to travel beyond your hometown. To help you in your search, we’ve rounded up five of the best dog parks from coast to coast. 

Keep reading to find the best dog parks near you!

1. Dog Mountain (St. Johnsbury, VT)

How do 150 acres of unspoiled Vermont wilderness sound for you and your pup? That’s exactly what you’ll find at Dog Mountain, located just east of Montpelier and Stowe.

Imagine endless hiking trails, ponds, and wide-open fields for your dog to run and play. You’ll also love the property’s charming Dog Chapel that celebrates the unique bond between man and man’s best friend.

2. Newtown Dream Dog Park (Johns Creek, GA)

Just north of Atlanta, Georgia, you’ll find the first-ever winner of Beneful’s Dream Dog Park campaign. The winners were awarded a cool $500,000 to build the ultimate dog park — and they did not disappoint.

Newtown Dream Dog Park is a fenced-in acre of doggie heaven. It’s full of bridges, arches, and tunnels over soft artificial turf. In the summer months, the park’s fire hydrant “sprinklers” are sure to keep your pup entertained for hours.

3. Shaggy Pines Dog Park (Ada, MI)

If you’re near Grand Rapids, Michigan, high-tail it over to the puppy paradise of Shaggy Pines Dog Park. There you’ll find 16 acres of rolling hills, lush pine forests, and a huge doggy swimming pond.

Does your pup love to climb and dig? He’ll love playing on the epic Doggy Mountain sand pile! Afterward, get a snack for yourself and your pup at the on-site Coffee and Treat Bar.

4. Bear Creek Dog Park (Colorado Springs, CO)

How much fun could your dog have exploring 25 leash-free acres in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains? Find out by taking a trip to Colorado Springs’ Bear Creek Dog Park.

There are hills, trails, and swimming opportunities galore in this majestic dog park. There’s also an Agility Training Area, as well as two acres dedicated to small dogs and senior dogs.

5. Fiesta Island Dog Park (San Diego, CA)

It’s hard to find a California beach where your pup can play off leash. But San Diego’s Fiesta Island Dog Park is one such place.

Here your furry friend can enjoy endless romps on wide sandy beaches and swims in the cool Pacific waters. Leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind and enjoy the oceanfront tranquility of one of the nation’s most best dog parks.

Plan a Visit to These Unique Dog Parks

So, which of these epic dog parks will make your must-see list?

Hopefully there’s one located near you. If not, it’s the perfect excuse to plan a road trip with your pup!

Speaking of your pup, do you have everything you need for your next trip to the dog park? From the best toys and training products to grooming and nutritional needs, Petland is your one-stop-shop for a happy, healthy pup.
