Chatfield State Park Dog Park


Around 69 acres including the multiple ponds makes Chatfield State Park Dog Park one of the best in Colorado.


This is Scooter's and my favorite dog park in Denver. Multiple ponds, a river, and good paved and unpaved paths. However, some paths can take you out of Chatfield State Park and down a path along the South Platt River. This path is very crowded with bikes and people so if you choose this option do it early in the day. It does have an $10 dollar state park entrance fee and a $3 dog park fee but in my opinion it is worth it. There is an option for an annual dog park pass for $25 and an annual state park pass for $80. The park does get busy but there is a reason why!
