Thompson Peak Park Dog Park


Project Overview

This project will build a three-and-a-half-acre dog park consisting of separate fenced and gated areas. The park will be designed and constructed in a manner similar to the off-leash area at Chaparral Park and provide pet owners a safe place to exercise their dogs. The project will include a footbridge to connect the off-leash area to existing park amenities and additional parking.

This project is an element of the Phase II amenities contained within the Thompson Peak Park conceptual master plan, was identified in the Community Services Master Plan (June 2015) and funding was approved by voters as part of the 2019 Bond Election.
