City and County Dog Rules
Dogs are welcome in all of the Jeffco Open Space parks and most of the City of Golden's parks and trails, however they must be leashed and under control at all times.
We ask that you immediately pick up dog waste, pack it out of the park and dispose of it in a trash can. Dog waste left on the ground pollutes groundwater and poses health risks to human and pets alike.
Thank you for assisting us in keeping Golden gorgeous!
