Westminster's dog parks (Westminster Hills Dog Park, Big Dry Creek Dog Park, and Little Dry Creek Dog Park) currently remain open for public use. If you choose to take your furry friends to enjoy the dog parks, please make sure to practice proper social distancing (maintain at least 6 feet from other humans and keep group size to four or fewer people). Also, please assume that all park equipment (picnic tables, benches, etc.) has not been disinfected (there is no practical way for park staff to maintain a constant state of sanitation). Thank you!

Off-Leash Dog Park Rules and Regulations

This 420-acre site is very popular, attracting dog lovers from all over the north metro area. The area is partially fenced, so it is important that dogs are under voice command. The size of the park allows dogs to run, fetch and play. If you bring young children to the park, please be aware of the jumping, bounding nature of off-leash dogs.

The rules and regulations of the off-leash dog park are designed to protect your dog and respect other users.

  • The site is open from sunrise to sunset, seven days a week.
  • All dogs owned by residents of Westminster, both in Adams and Jefferson counties, are required by law to be licensed. Get information about dog licensing in Westminster.
  • Dogs must be leashed when entering or leaving the off-leash area and owners must have a visible leash at all times.
  • Dogs are not allowed to chase or harass wildlife or other dogs.
  • Owners may not leave their dogs unattended.
  • Animals must be spayed or neutered.
  • Owners must remove dog’s waste.

The following dogs are not allowed in the off-leash area:

  • Aggressive dogs
  • Female dogs in heat
  • Dogs without current vaccination tag attached to collar worn by the dog
  • Dogs too young to vaccinate against rabies
  • Dogs known to be ill or exhibiting signs of illness
  • Dogs not under voice command

The owner assumes the legal responsibility for any damage, disease or injury to persons, other dogs or property caused by his/her dog.
