Know Before You Go: Here is some helpful tips and rules you need to know before visiting the dog park.


Ironwood Area of the dog park will be closed to private reservations September 19th- December 5th due to overseeding all three areas of the dog park.

Palo Verde Area closed for overseeding starting October 17th. Timid dogs will use the Ironwood area while it is closed.

The City of Apache Junction has considered and planned for the development of an off-leash dog park in our community for over 10 years; however, funding was historically a challenge. In recent years, efforts were re-vitalized when the City partnered with Arizona State University Project Cities to evaluate interest, funding, and logistics. The Parks and Recreation Commission and the Apache Junction City Council identified a cost-effective, central location in the downtown area, at the Pinal County Complex located on the SE corner of Superstition Blvd. and Idaho Rd. The new dog park, which began construction in August, has separate fenced areas for varying sizes of dogs, grass, water stations, solar lighting, shade and seating. We are currently seeking grants, donations and corporate partners that may be interested in contributing to the funding of this project. If you have questions or are interested in getting involved with one of our citizen groups, please contact ajpr@apachejunctionaz.gov.

Dogs must be registered and have current vaccinations, tags must be visible. For information on Apache Junction Animal Control click here

Dog Park Areas


Mesquite Area

Our largest area at the park is for active dogs and dogs who are comfortable around all types of dogs.  Expect other dogs to want to play or check out your dog when you are visiting this space.  

Palo Verde Area

In the middle of the dog park, this space is for passive or timid dogs.  While we expect to see mostly smaller dogs here, some larger dogs can be quite shy too.  As long as they are not aggressive or overly playful, this is a good space for them as well. 

Ironwood Area

This space is a closed space used for activities, classes, events and periodic facility maintenance.  It will also be available for community members to rent on an as-available-basis for small pup parties or training their own dog.  It is also a great space for individuals to reserve if they have a dog that is not yet ready for socializing with other dogs off-leash.  

Reservations? Yes Please! (Reservations will not be taken September 19th- December 5th)

The Ironwood Area on the south side of the park, is for programming, events and also available for reservations. 

For more information call 480-474-5133. Reservations can be made at 1035 N. Idaho Road, a 48 hour request is required, fees start at $8/hour.  All the dog park rules will apply, unless granted an exception by the director.
