Palmer Park Off Leash Dog Park

Palmer Park off leash dog area is located at 3650 Maizeland Rd, Colorado Springs, Co 80909. There is a fenced area near the entrance that is off leash. Its not the nicest area to let your dogs run free but it will do for a quick walk/play time. Its an open area, mostly dirt, with absolutely no shade. 

The real gem of Palmer Park is the off leash area called Yucca Flats. Continue up the road, pass the fenced in dog park. Yucca Flats will be a right hand turn onto a dirt road. The trailhead is at the dead end just a short distance down the road. The area on the top is off leash. Dogs are also allowed on the other trails but a leash is required. If you walk straight pass the sign, the trail goes to the most awesome overlook of Colorado Springs. Here is a link to the map!
