Fossil Creek Dog Park

5821 S. Lemay Ave.

Fort Collins, CO 80525

This park is a great place to come with your family and spend the day. It’s close to the city, but is designed to feel like an escape. The park has playgrounds and sports fields, but there’s also plenty of space to enjoy nature in solitude. There are lit tennis courts, pavilions, horseshoe pits, a bike course, an interactive water feature (that kids love!), and, of course, the dog park. The Fossil Creek Dog Park area is located close to the entrance. It’s just under an acre, but has a separate area for large and small dogs.

Spring Canyon Dog Park

2626 W. Horsetooth Road

Fort Collins, CO 80526

With almost 3 acres of fenced-in land for your dog to run around in, you’ll be sure to tire your pup out by the time you leave! Bring a bowl for water (a water fountain is provided), but ditch the bags because bags and trash cans are spread throughout the park. Your dog can socialize and play with other dogs to their heart’s content, but there is an area for small or shy dogs as well. Choose a sunny day this spring and visit Spring Canyon Dog Park!

Soft Gold Dog Park

520 Hickory St.

Fort Collins, CO 80524

The parking area is a ¼ mile from the dog park, so you’ll be able to get a little walking in as well when you take your dog here. Make sure to bring water and a bowl to this is nice park on the north side of town. Depending on where you’re looking to buy a home, this could be a great location! Soft Gold Dog Park is about 1 acre, and is a nice fenced-in park surrounded by trees.

Poudre Trail

2400 S County Rd 9

Fort Collins, CO 80525

If you and your pup are fans of trail running close to home, then you may want to have us help you find a home near the Poudre Trail. The entire trail is about 21 miles, and is well maintained for walking, running, cycling, and more. For a nice on-leash jog with your dog and a nice view, the Poudre Trail can’t be beat. The trail follows the river, so you’re guaranteed something nice to look at and possibly even some wildlife sightings.

Pineridge Natural Area

3745 Prospect Rd

Fort Collins, CO 80525

This is another great area for spending a day outdoors with your dog and family. Pineridge Natural Area has 7 miles for you, your kids, and your dog to run around and get the jitters out! It’s popular for hiking, fishing, and biking, so be prepared because there could be a lot of people here on a weekend.
