On February 25, 2016, Park City Council adopted a resolution (page 183) creating a dog task force whose charter is to explore criteria in establishing management and infrastructure options related to dogs and dog-related programs.

The task force will be discussing the following topics and providing recommendations where applicable:

  • Criteria to evaluate other possible dog related designated areas or improvements, including:
    • Fenced Dog Parks
    • Unfenced off-leash areas
    • Areas where dogs should be prohibited/excluded
  • Possible Management tools in designated areas
    • Seasonal, Daily or hourly restrictions
    • Geographical restrictions/parameters
  • Criteria to establish High Enforcement areas
  • Additional Dog related Policies, Regulations and Programs
    • Specific off leash ordinance
    • Education/Outreach
  • Participate in the evaluation of existing Round Valley and Library field-designated areas


The city is currently conducting a pilot project to determine the value and viability off two designated off-leash areas within city limits: Library Field and a portion of Round Valley. As part of the data-gathering process, the city conducted an online survey earlier this month. View the survey results here.

Dog owners are required to comply with all rules and regulations to enjoy the off-leash dog area privilege. Visit this page for a list of frequently asked questions and to view maps of the off-leash dog areas.
