Colorado Springs Bear Creek Dog Park
Bear Creek Dog Park is El Paso County’s most visited park with more than 100,000 visitors a year. This 25-acre off-leash dog park is located in Bear Creek Regional Park and is about 4.7 miles south of Paloma Terrace. See directions below.
The park is comprised of open prairie, dirt trails, hills, woods and a 1/3-mile-long stretch of Bear Creek (seen above). It includes areas for dogs and people to wade and play in the creek, and it’s a great place to walk and socialize your dog and try off-leash training.
To help avoid Covid, there are no hallways or touchpoints here between your car and home.
