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. It’s worth the short drive. 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.
Please feel free to call (719) 634-7034 for an appointment. An appointment is easy, at your convenience, and saves you time. Or email us. Or if you want, stop in when convenient during office hours. There is no cost to look, and you'll be happy you did.

Small and Senior Dogs

There is also a public restroom and fresh water for canines and people. You might want to bring a towel in case your pooch gets wet. See here for the complete facilities list. Enjoy!
