If you live in or near Denver or are visiting with your dog, you must visit Elk Meadow Dog Park. Every time I take my furry baby, I stand in awe that this is basically in my back yard. The park is 110 acres of pure puppy bliss. Free and open to all, it is part of the state’s park system.
Animals can run free, aka leash less, as long as they behave. There are streams, trees, hills and rocks. I like it because I also get in a decent workout, around three miles, and Neeko puts in about 25 miles for the team. I try to visit at least once a month as it is Neeko’s official “happy place.”
