Off Leash Dog Park in Bozeman Progressing

Bozeman’s new off leash dog park has been progressing well and should be have a full, walkable loop by the start of winter. The loop should be completed by Halloween. As Bozeman’s west side continues to grow, adding another dog park will help keep Bozeman dogs happy and healthy.

Phase 1 of the park will consist of 13 acres. Run Dog Run, the non-proift heading the project broke ground in May and have been working on fundraising for the park since then. So far they have raised $30,000 for the park and received matching funds from the Land and Water Conservation fund.

The park will include trails, water and varied terrain. Ponds are slowly filling as workers excavated areas around the park. Next, workers will continue their work on the trail, replanting vegetation and fencing the park (it is off leash after all!).

Future plans include adding more intricate trails and adding a diving dock on one of the ponds.

With dog-related improvements throughout Bozeman over the past year, the city and county have really made a true effort to turn Bozeman into doggy paradise. Run Dog Run has helped start 4 off leash dog parks in Bozeman, including the recent 2-acre off-leash park at Rocky Creek Farm. The Gallatin Valley Land Trust also worked on improving and expanding Snowfill, the off-leash dog park north of town.
