Dog Parks in Coachella Valley

Before taking your dog out, check the temperature. If it is, or has been, a hot day keep in mind that your friend is wearing a fur coat – and is closer to the radiant heat of the ground. Here are some suggestions for protecting your pet.

Palm Springs Dog Park

3200 E Tahquitz Canyon Way
Palm Springs, CA, US 92262

Dogs run and play leash-free; park never closes. Separate play area for small dogs. Beautiful fence designed and built by artist Phill Evans; double-gated for safety.

Cahuilla Hills Park is nearly 26 acres of undeveloped open space that serves as the trailhead for the Cahuilla Hills Trails System. There are off-leash exercise in the designated area of this public park, though be careful as the area is not fully fenced.

The hike requires a leash – be sure to bring water and be careful about hot days and your dogs feet. On the other side of the one hour hike ends at another off leash area at Homme Adams Park.
