Let your pooch have some fun off leash at these popular CT dog parks

Nov 28, 2023

All over Connecticut, thousands of dog owners look for somewhere dog friendly to let their pooch run wild.

In towns across the state, dog parks have begun popping up. Sometimes they are simple with two sides – one for big dogs and one for small dogs – while others have far reaching trails you can hike with your best friend. There's water stations, play areas and more. There is even an indoor dog park located in West Hartford where you won't be toweling mud off paws after visiting during a rainy day.

Here is a list of some of our favorite dog parks in Connecticut.

635 New Park Ave., West Hartford

This year-round, indoor dog park may require a membership, but it's worth it! The Wagging Tails Indoor Dog Park is adjacent to an outdoor play yard. In the warmer months, there are pools, water play features, shade and tons of seating for pet parents. Get your pooch out in the winter and other inclement weather without the mud and mess.
