The Dog area is currently open from 5 am to 10 pm. Bring hand sanitizer and practice social distancing. Come early or late, as we are experiencing large crowds and long waits.
FALL CLOSURE for the Dog Off-leash Area:
October 5th through October 8th, 2020, the Dog Off-Leash Area will be closed for resource management. Work includes:
Fence installation and repairs
Entrance and bullpen improvements
The Cherry Creek Dog off-Leash Area (DOLA) is a 107 acre fenced area that has water access for canine enjoyment. Cherry Creek flows through the DOLA and has been renovated to help with erosion control to allow for easier access to the water.
You MUST have your dog within visual distance and under voice control when off leash.
A leash and a waste bag
MUST be carried for each dog.
Cleaning up after your pet is mandatory, as it is crucial to the preservation and cleanliness of the DOLA and watershed.
There is a
limit of three dogs per handler, and all dogs must remain on leash when not the fenced area.
Use of the DOLA requires a valid DOLA pass as well as a valid park pass for all vehicles entering the park. DOLA passes are available for purchase at the entrance stations and the park office. When staff is unavailable to assist, daily passes can be purchased at the self serve stations. Please see
Fees page for prices.
Due to the popularity of the DOLA, extended wait times are common during peak hours. Peak hours vary and include holidays and weekends.
Additional facilities are available for sport dog training. Please contact the Park Office at (303)766-6562 for more information.
