We recommend that you check out the “reviews” for the parks listed below. It’s always a good idea to see what others have to say to make sure the park you’re considering is the right fit for you and your dog. These Dog Parks and reviews can be found on Fido.com

North Domingo Dog Park

Spacious park with separate large and small dog areas, plus wood chip ground cover, trees, awnings, benches, and lighting.

Los Altos Park

Dog park with separate sections for large and small dogs. Located at the corner of Eubank and I-40. It is a nice little dog park with very friendly people. "Heads up" though -- it is located along the fence line of adult softball fields. Luckily, most of the players know that if a dog gets to a ball they hit over first, he gets to keep it. Open 6 AM to 10 PM.

Rio Grande Triangle Park

This is one of several off-leash dog parks in Albuquerque, NM. Be sure to bring water for your dog, as this location does not have a doggie water fountain.

Tingly Beach

This location is in southwest Albuquerque in between the zoo, aquarium, and botanical garden. The majority of Tingley Beach is reserved for fishing, model boats, hiking/running, and pedal boats. The real treasure is what is hidden BEHIND the obvious. Just a few steps off the road to the southwest of the commotion are several areas to park and hike. Dogs must be leashed at Tingley Beach.

USS Bullhead Park

This off-leash dog park in southwest Albuquerque, NM is a great treat for your furry friends. Remember to have some water on hand, as this park doesn't have a water supply for the dogs.

This off-leash dog area in Coronado park allows three furry friends per human. Puppies must be at least six months of age to enter the park. Be sure to bring water for your dog as it is not available on site.

Westgate Dog Park

Westgate Community Dog Park is one of the less busy dog parks in Albuquerque, probably due to its location. All in all, it is a very nice park that is well kept by the city and community.

Sandia Crest Trail

This is a great hike located on the backside of the Sandia Mountains. It's a short 15-30 minute drive from the beautiful city of Albuquerque. This trail is a beginner/intermediate level hike (some steep hills) and puppy friendly! The whole hike leads to the Sandia Crest, or spend a few hours looking for fossils (on the trail of course), and head back down! A great way to spend the morning, afternoon, or day with the people and puppies you love most. Make sure to bring water in your car as there is no potable water nearby.
