The Bear Creek Dog Park was established in 1997 in response to citizens and park patrons as an off-leash voice-command dog park.The Dog Park encompasses approximately 25 acres and is presently fenced on three sides of the park with the final portion of fencing to be installed during the second quarter of 2006. With Bear Creek running along the south side, dogs may enjoy a drink from the mountain creek.
Through fundraising efforts from El Paso County Parks and LOOP (Lovers of Off-leash Parks), a local citizen group, a Small Dog Area was created during the late Fall of 2005. The area is just under two acres and is adjacent to Bear Creek with steps and a handrail leading to the creek. It is completely fenced with two double-entry vesitbules to protect small dogs from the larger ones.
Bear Creek Dog Park is located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and the base of Pikes Peak with an elevation change of at least 100 feet going from the north boundary to the south boundary. The terrain provide dogs and their owners a variety of exercise options.
