Desert Vista Dog Park

Its more than a dog park – its a community!

Please help to keep the Dog Park Open by adhering to Town and CDC guidelines!

The Town of Fountain Hills has re-opened the Dog Park and has asked that the Town and CDC guidelines be followed.  Regardless of your personal views abut the COVID19 situation – when visiting public areas like parks – we all need to be respectful of others and adhere to guidelines provided by the Town and CDC.

* Wear Face Coverings when in the park.
* Maintain Social Distancing – with a minimum of 6 feet between people at all times.
* Wash or sanitize hands after touching gate handles or any other surface handled by others.
* Do not pet other dogs unless the owner gives permission.
* Do not come to the park if you are feeling ill!

This pandemic and the information available to our Town leaders, State officials, government officials and scientists is extremely dynamic and changing daily as they learn more about the virus.   

The Town of Fountain Hills website is the best place to visit for up to date information regarding the Town’s actions in response to this global situation.

ADOG will continue to share information as it becomes available.  As a reminder ADOG has no authority over decisions regarding Town parks – including the dog park.  Given these very unprecedented times  – dealing with a virus that is extremely contagious and deadly for certain segments of our society – it is our responsibility to remain patient and do what is asked of us.  Stay safe!

The Desert Vista Dog Park is one of Fountain Hills most used amenities!  The first official dog park in Arizona, Desert Vista Dog Park is rated one of the top dog parks in the country.   The Off-Leash Recreational Facility is a 3-acre fenced facility that allows dogs to run, socialize and play. The Dog Park is divided into 2 fenced areas, one for larger dogs and the other smaller canines. The large / active dog area can be accessed from entrances on either Tower Drive or Desert Vista. The small / passive dog area can only be accessed from Tower Drive.  The dog park hours are 6am -9pm and the park does have lights that will come on at dusk.  Trees and covered gazebos provide for shade and there are water fountains and hoses located at various areas to keep the pups and people hydrated,  ADOG provides kiddie pools for the dogs to play and keep cool in too. 

Desert Vista Dog Park is more than a place for dogs  – its also a great social venue for residents who are pet lovers to meet and socialize too
