Tell us the facts. Include your location, dog park characteristics, and the benefits of adding a park for pets and people.
Show us the proof. Upload a photo or video of your neighborhood with dogs in the park. Give us a sense of the scale of your community, of what’s already going on in your area and what the benefits would be to your neighborhood.
Ask a question. Tell us your interest in your city’s best dog parks and the reasons you’re asking. Let us know if there are any parks in your city you’d like to see featured.

If we pick your neighborhood, we will contact the city government with your suggestion and request a dog park. We will also post the news and photos here and on social media.
Cherry Creek Dog Park
DogFriendly® is grateful for our friends at Cherry Creek Dog Park for their time and effort to ensure that dogs can play together in our neighborhood and the community at large.
Cherry Creek Dog Park is located off Cherry Creek Path behind Cherry Creek Park in the North Glenwood Community area. Cherry Creek Dog Park has grass, and a grassy area for dogs to roll around. It also has a fenced dog park area, with picnic tables and shade.
The park was developed in 2015 with help from City of Greenwood and Parkland Animal Control.
Cherry Creek Dog Park was made possible by the City of Greenwood and Parkland Animal Control. City of Greenwood staff including: Mayor Greg Carlson, City Councilwoman Kathy Sabin, and Community Development Director Tim Hickey, and Parkland Animal Control staff, worked collaboratively with dog park advocates to create this facility.
There is always room for improvement. To reach out to the City of Greenwood about dog park needs in your neighborhood, please email us at [email protected]

The Greenwood Dog Park Committee is now accepting applications for 2018 Dog Park Funding. If you are interested in applying for a dog park location, please complete the Dog Park Funding Application (PDF).
The application is required to be completed online. If you have any questions, please contact the Greenwood Dog Park Committee at [email protected] or (919) 452-2781.
For additional funding opportunities, please check out the Greenwood Animal Shelter Grants and Animal Welfare Fund for assistance.
We are in the final stages of the planning process and have identified several possible dog park locations.
To date, the park committee has heard from the community about the potential for a dog park, as well as the cost to build and operate the facility. From these discussions, the committee is confident in its commitment to identify a dog park location. If you have any questions, please contact the Greenwood Dog Park Committee at [email protected] or (919) 452-2781.
In addition to providing a dog park area, Greenwood Animal Services is committed to improving the lives of all animals in Greenwood. They have created an Animal Welfare Fund with $80,000 in surplus assets. This can be used to purchase animal related equipment, fund special training for animal officers, or help fund a new Greenwood Animal Shelter or pet clinic.

We are excited to announce a collaboration between the Greenwood Animal Services and the Greenwood Dog Park Committee.
Together we will work on two projects:
Design of a proposed dog park area.
Purchase and construction of the shelter.
The dog park project will be designed by the Committee. The location of the proposed dog park area is yet to be determined. However, the area should be north of US 74 in the southern part of the city. The location should have open space to ensure the area is used regularly.
The shelter will be designed by the Committee and constructed by BAC. This project will be funded through the Dog Park Committee’s Animal Welfare Fund.
In order to receive a permit to build the shelter, we will need a completed construction plan for the site approved by the city. The plan will have to show a lot and area of open space, a location for the shelter, a drainage system, and parking spaces. We estimate the project cost to be $150,000.
We hope to begin construction on the shelter in March 2019.
To learn more about the project, please contact the Committee’s Chair, Jeff Martin, at [email protected]
