DENVER – There’s a new place for you and your furry friends to let loose in Denver.

That’s because the city’s newest off-leash dog park opened Saturday in the Barnum neighborhood.

The dog park, located on the west side of Barnum Park on North Julian Street between West 4th and West 5th Avenues, measures 33,000 square feet – about three-quarters of an acre – and has two separate areas for high and low energy dogs.

Barnum’s dog park is the tenth off-leash dog park residents can enjoy throughout Denver. Other dog parks include:

  • Berkeley Dog Park - Sheridan and West 46th
  • Fuller Dog Park - Franklin and East 29th
  • Green Valley Ranch East Dog Park - Jebel and East 45th
  • Greenway Dog Park - E 22nd Ave and Syracuse Street
  • Kennedy Dog Park - Hampden and South Dayton
  • Little Box Car - Broadway and Lawrence St.
  • Lowry Dog Park - East 4th Place and South Yosemite Way
  • Parkfield Dog Park- 53rd Avenue and Chambers Road
  • Railyard Dog Park - 19th Avenue and Little Raven Street
  • Opening spring 2018: Carla Madison Dog Park - 2405 E Colfax Ave

A pop-up dog park in the area of Little Raven Street and Speer Boulevard remains open until the end of the year. 

The pop-up dog park is part of the city’s Outdoor Downtown Plan, a 20-year project that seeks to reduce the number of park deserts around town by bringing people together around green spaces.

Unlighted dog parks are open from sunrise to sundown, seven days a week; lighted dog parks are open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week.
