Pop-up park for pups in Queen Creek

Posted

A pop-up dog park will be available July 15 through Aug. 27 at Founders' Park in Queen Creek while important maintenance is performed at the town's Pocket Park for Pups. 

The pop-up dog park will be located on the north side of Founders' Park at 22407 S. Ellsworth Road. There will be a designated area for small / timid dogs and a separate area for large / active dogs. 

Pop-Up Dog Park Parking:

  • Parking for the small dog area will be in the northwest parking lot (access from Ellsworth or Aldecoa roads).
  • Parking for the large dog area will be in the Aldecoa lot (east side of park, access from Aldecoa Road).

Queen Creek’s Pocket Park for Pups is a heavily used and popular facility. The heavy use has a cumulative effect on the site, specifically on the ability for turf to grow. 

The closure will allow staff to recondition the soil and conduct deep watering, giving the roots time to strengthen and grow deeper into the soil. Deeper, healthier roots promote turf growth even with heavy use.

For more information about the temporary dog park, visit QueenCreekAZ.gov/PopUpDogPark.

Remember to keep you dog on a leash from your vehicle until you are inside the dog park and anytime you are in a public space other than the designated dog park.
