Park City is friendly not only to families but to the family pooch, too. The city council even updated the town’s code in 2016 to create special off-leash areas where beloved pets can roam unrestrained.
Look for these spots for a howling great time with your canine fur baby:
Round Valley Off-Leash Dog Area
Near Park City Sports Complex
Round Valley is a 1,400-acre expanse of land where dogs can roam and frolic while their owners look on and chat. It is included in the designated list of off-leash areas that Park City’s council created in 2016.
The designated open space also has about 40 miles of off-leash trails (in varying difficulties) that you can explore with your enthusiastic and furry best friend.
Run-a-Muk Dog Trail
2387 Olympic Parkway
Head to Kimball Junction near the Utah Olympic Park to enjoy two miles of off-leash trail walks with your beloved pet. The Run-a-Muk Dog Trail offers 43 acres of open space on top of the dedicated trails to ensure maximum enjoyment for your pooch. It’s open from dusk until dawn, so your dog’s happiness can fit nicely into your schedule.
1794 Olympic Parkway
Just a two-minute car drive from the Run-a-Muk dog trail along Olympic Parkway, this coffee shop prides itself on being a place where “dogs are always welcome.” This coffee shop inside the Park City Visitor Center serves you coffee, tea or smoothies to pair with a variety of pastries and sandwiches while your fur baby relaxes with you in the dog-friendly lounge area.
Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail
Park City proper
This well-trodden 28-mile trail is the first open area in this list where your dog is required to be on a leash. That’s hardly a gripe for a dog. They still get a chance to enjoy the great outdoors and sniff out the historic multitude of scents deposited along the rail-trail. The going is easy, if a little lengthy, but the variety of views and wildlife ought to keep you and your trusty companion glued in anticipation.
Willow Creek Park
4460 Split Rail Lane
The off-leash dog park of Willow Creek Park in the Snyderville Basin is a fenced-in area spanning 2.4 acres. It is designed to keep your dog on its paws and yearning for the next adventure. The park’s grassy area is set up as an agility course, perfect for training Fido to think quick. The other part of the park is a large, dog-friendly pond with a floating dog where more daring dogs can play in the water and seek relief from the summer heat.
Collie’s Sports Bar and Grill
738 Main Street
While you can’t (and likely won’t) go on pub crawls with your furry friend, it’s comforting to know that they can still tag along with you to the local pub for a light afternoon drink. At Collie’s Sports Bar and Grill, you can settle down with a burger or a bowl of chili and pair that with a beer from the bar’s extensive selection. In the meantime, your furry best friend can be treated to a fresh bowl of water and the privilege to sit beside you in the outdoor patio.
