Dog Off-Leash Season Is Here

Bring on the dogs! Starting November 1Ann Morrison Park and Optimist Youth Sports Complex will once again become seasonal dog off-leash areas.


The off-leash program is intended to help prevent long-term damage and address public health and safety concerns caused by geese and gives your pooch some much needed exercise; it runs through the end of February.

All areas of the two parks are available for off-leash dog use, sunrise to sunset, with the exception of Boise River Greenbelt paths, parking lots, roadways and playgrounds. Owners are reminded to please pick up after their pets. This is also a good time to obtain or renew an animal license for your pet; both can be done by through the City of Boise's Animal Licensing

There are plenty of other dog-friendly areas in the city! You can find them here.
