Best Phoenix Dog Parks
Rated among the top 10 cities for dogs, Phoenix pet sitters know that dog parks are plentiful for your pooch to play and get off the leash. Keeping Rover in mind, take a look at the best dog parks around the Valley.
Paw-shaped pathways at this Central Phoenix location leave little question for what or whom this park was designed. The Steele Indian School Dog Park invites off-leash activity for both large and small dogs with separate play areas for each.
Doggy water fountains offer refreshments for pups during or after a big day of play. There are also shade trees and a few seats and tables for pet owners to relax.
Considered by many the best dog park in Phoenix, this park sponsored by PETsMART has a great layout and two watering stations. The park is ADA accessible and benches, shade, and mutt mitt dispensers are great for the human side of the equation. Heavy rainfall and flood irrigation mean occasional closures in this and many dog parks in Phoenix, so it’s not a bad idea to call ahead. PetSmart is partnering with Phoenix to create more pop up parks as well.
Visiting this park will allow you and your canine to honor a K-9 who gave his life in the line of duty in 2005. R.J. served the Phoenix police department for more than 300 deployments and the park is named in his honor. Perhaps this is why some note that regulars take more care to clean up after their pets and respect the area.
Chaparral Park’s off-leash area caters to both active and passive pets with separate sections for both. Sand pits and concrete structures allow active canines to climb and explore.
You will also find drinking areas for dogs and people, evening lighting, and plenty of benches for dog parents to sit and keep watch.

A common complaint about Phoenix dog parks is inadequate lighting, but Hance provides great light for your four-legged friend to frolic by as the sun goes down.

For nearby residents this park is a daily visit to burn off energy and socialize.
Your dog doesn’t have to be a sports fan to enjoy the acres of fun at the south end of the Rose Mofford Sports Complex. If you’re going to be in North Phoenix with your dog and need an exercise stop for your buddy, have a ball and score some time with similar-sized dogs in one of the gated off-leash areas.
