Looking for a place where your dog can work off his extra energy? These are some of the most popular parks within the Oklahoma City metro.
Although the Myriad Gardens is largely known for its amazing Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory and surrounding children’s garden and splash park, dog parents may not know about its beautiful off-leash dog park. The Myriad Gardens loves furry friends so much that its caretakers encourage dog park visitors to share their photos via Twitter and Instagram.
Another great dog park is Paw Park, located by Lake Hefner. This park is also bordered by a duck pond with a gravel beach that has been built to give dogs a large area for swimming and playing in the water.
DEEP DEUCE DOG PARK
Deep Deuce Dog Park is located in downtown Oklahoma City at NE Second Street and Oklahoma Avenue right next to Anchor Down (a unique restaurant and bar built out of shipping containers). In fact, the dog park is practically attached to the outdoor patio of the restaurant so it is a perfect location to bring your dog for a nice meal followed by some play time in the park. The dog park is roughly 4,000 square feet, so there is no separate play area based on the size of dog.
MIDTOWN MUTTS DOG PARK
This park is located in Midtown OKC, between N Walker and N Hudson Avenue, just north of NW 10th Street. Although not as large as other parks in the Oklahoma City metro, it is conveniently located to downtown. The address for the park is 409 W Park Place.
EDMOND DOG PARK
If Edmond is the place you call home, the Edmond Dog Park is a fenced, four-acre park with a separate area for small dogs, as well as plenty of benches, trees and lake access for dog swimming.
PARKS FOR RUNNING/WALKING
If you’re a runner, you’ll find many parks to enjoy running with your dog, including Hafer Park or Mitch Park in Edmond or the trails around Lake Hefner. The city also has a variety of charity 5k runs throughout the year that benefit local rescues.
Note: Make sure your dog is current on vaccines before visiting a local dog park. Puppies and unvaccinated dogs are at highest risk for contagious diseases.
