Finding somewhere suitable to exercise your dog can prove difficult. Fortunately, around Colorado, there are plenty of trails and walks where you can take your dog walking, but you usually need to keep your dog on a leash to use these areas.

Off-leash dog parks are a great opportunity for your dog to run free, burn off some energy, and also to socialize with other dogs. They can also be a great place for some off-leash training. However, not all parks and fields permit dogs off leash, and it can be difficult to find one in your area.

We could only find two off-leash dog parks in Lakewood, but we have included details of some other parks that welcome dogs, as long as you keep them on a leash. Below are four amazing dog parks near Lakewood, Colorado, including addresses and other details so you can get out and get to playing fetch!
