Cedar City Dog Park - supporting a

THANK YOU ENOCH CITY
for being home to Iron County's
  FIRST DOG PARK.
 



Now that our Large Dog Area and Small Dog Area of the new Enoch Dog Park has been fenced, we have begun the design.









We will eventually have a 3rd area that will be used as a rotation area. This rotation area will be used when repairs to grass or any other maintenance needs to be done and can be used for special events, like our Responsible Dog Ownership Days.

The Concept:
Every area will have lawn/grass
Every area will have a natural landscape area which includes the native sagebrush and other native plants and trees. Lots of trees will be planted for shade A covered area in each area with seating All areas will have their own water We would eventually like to have fun water features We would like to have an asphalt walkway around the entire perimeter of each individual area so while dogs are romping and playing, their guardians are walking and exercising as well We would like this dog park to be ADA accessible so all are able to enjoy. We will be having different and fun agility equipment for dogs to play on. There is an area, outside of the fencing, that will host picnic tables and trees.

This dog park is being built by the community and for the community but we still need more community donations and labor to finish. We want this to be THE dog park to visit in Southern Utah.


Please come out and visit the Dog Park!
Be aware there may be burs, foxtails, mud and other natural environment.  
Bring your own water.  Spigots have not been placed.
We need the community's help to finish developing this dog park.  
Please call us at 435-865-7347 if you can help.

Because our group is a 501.c.3 non-profit organization we can accept tax deductible and we are accepting donations to be used for this project.


Dog Parks are multi-generational serving teenagers to senior citizens.  The park is as much for the people as it is the dogs.  It is a location where people with similar interests can socialize, share information, & exercise with their pets. 

According to the American Pet Products Association, 56.7 million households have at least one dog.   Dog parks tend to yield more use than other parks because the of the large group it serves and it is used year round as opposed to ball fields only being used for a season. 

  • Dog parks promote responsible dog ownership by offering an off-leash area where dogs will not infringe on the enjoyment of other park users such as joggers, small children and those that may be fearful of dogs.  

  • It also makes it easier for the city to enforce leash laws.  It is a location where people share information and learn responsible pet ownership. 

  • Dog Trainers can use this centralized location for dog training classes, dog sports, pet adoptions, demonstrations & competitions.  

  • The Police K9s units can use this location for their training sessions. 

  • A dog park provides the elderly and disabled a place to exercise their pets in safety.  Dogs provide companionship to many elderly and disabled people.  A dog park provides an excellent place for them to enjoy the outdoors and socialize with others, which is important for their health and well-being as well as their dogs.  

In past years, Eagle Scouts expressed interest in putting up fences, gazebos for shade, bulletin boards, seating, permanent agility equipment, etc.  Contractors offered their services for clearing & local businesses have offered us discounts on products. If you or anyone you know can help with various projects for the dog park, please contact Diane Gil at 435-865-7347.

The New Dog Park:
  • There will be 3 areas 
  • large dog
  • small dog
