An enclosed dog park was opened at Gilpin Park in July 2018. This is an area which is fenced off with a dual access gate entry. Signs at the entries provide clear guidelines about what is expected of owners and handlers and their dogs when they are at Gilpin Park, particularly inside the fenced area.
See Gilpin Park enclosed dog park for project details.
Walking your dog
At off-leash dog parks you must still keep your dog under control. You can find out more about these rules on our Park amenities and equipment page.
In all other public places, dogs must be kept in control with a leash, cord, or chain. Dogs are prohibited from the area around playgrounds or within creeks.
