Dog Parks in Palm Springs


Palm Springs Dog Park - Pups play here daily from 6:00 AM - 10:00 PM (closed from 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM on Tuesday and Friday) because of its wide-open space that covers 1.6 acres of fenced-in grass complete with fire hydrants and dual purpose canine/human drinking fountains. Dogs are allowed to run around leash-free and there’s a separate area for smaller dogs who don’t want to run with the big boys.

Civic Center Dog Park - Civic Center Park is Palm Desert’s largest park and covers 70 acres of amenities that include an amphitheater, baseball fields, pickleball courts, a dog park, and more. There are also plenty of walking paths to take your pet for a walk when the weather’s nice. It’s easy to spend an entire morning or afternoon spending a day in the park.

University Dog Park - If you want to steer clear of the crowds, the 2.4 acres of University Dog Park allows for ample space for your pet to roam free in an area with typically less foot traffic. Plan a picnic with your dog, go for a walk, or just relax and soak up the sun while your dog plays.

Cathedral City Dog Park – For pups not quite ready to run with the big dogs, this 5-acre park hosts two separate areas, one for small dogs and one for large dogs, to help maintain a fun and safe atmosphere for everyone. The spacious area sits close to Second Street Park and has benches, waterers, and a small shade structure to keep cool when the temperatures start to rise.
