Favorite Dog Parks in Utah
Here are some of our favorite dog parks we frequent at in Utah in no particular order. Going to the dog park give us a chance to socialize with other dogs and their humans, an opportunity for some exercise, and gives us a chance to get some fresh air. However, the main reason we like going to the park is that it is FUN.
Dayland Dog Park | 300 East 13400 South, Draper, UT
This park caters to both small and large dogs. We prefer the large dog side to go run and play. The park consists of mainly gravel, with a paved walking trail that runs on the perimeter of the park so the humans can stay just as active as the pups. A small creek runs in the middle of the park for the pups to play and cool off on hot summer day. There is a fenced in grassy area within the park. If your dogs are sensitive to gravel or you just want to throw the ball around, this is a great spot. There is plenty of water for the pups and benches throughout the park to sit.
Tanner Park | 2760 Heritage Way, Salt Lake City
We love Tanner Park due to dogs being able to be off-leash and the access to water. This park offer 13 acres of hiking and two access points to the creek. This is a great park to visit all year round. In the springtime, please be cautious of the stream. With the snow run off, the water can be very high and swift. There are benches throughout the park, plenty of room to throw the ball, and waste stations along the way.
Memory Grove | 300 Canyon Rd, Salt Lake City
Memory Grove is located in City Creek Canyon right in the heart of Salt Lake City. You will start on-leash, but there is a great ¼-mile trail that is off-leash park and runs along the creek. It is a nice wooded dirt trail and offers plenty of shade. Do not expect your dog to stay clean due to the trail being direct and the water access. If you are looking to expand your hike, you can put the dogs on leash and continue up city creek canyon.
Lindsey Gardens | 426 M St, Salt Lake City
Lindsey Gardens is located in the Avenues neighborhood in Salt Lake City. There is a designated off-leash dog area where the pups can run around. We love this park due to all the shade and grass. If your dogs are great off leash, this is definitely a park to visit.
Herman Franks | 1371 S 700 E, Salt Lake City
This park is adjacent to Liberty Park in Salt Lake City. It is fenced in and offers a space for your dog to run. A majority of the park is filled with wood chips, but there is a grassy area as well. Water is available for the pups, as well as waste stations.
Willow Creek Dog Park | 4460 Split Rail Lane, Park City
If you were to sum up the ideal dog park for Gracie and Wefos, Willow Creek would be it. This gem of a park is located in Park City. This park is 2.4 acres with a grass area and a pond that has beach entry and a dock for the dogs to jump off. While the dogs are having fun running around, you can sit on one of the many park benches and take in the mountain views. This park is worth the drive from the Salt Lake Valley.
Sandy City Dog Park | 9980 S 300 E, Sandy
This park is a fenced in park that offers a gravel and grass section. There is a water station for your pup and accessible poo bags for cleanup. The park does have a few areas for humans to sit while the pups play.
Waggin Tails, Happy Travels!
