Located directly behind Palm Springs City Hall, the Palm Springs Dog Park is a 1.6 acre park where dogs can run free and their owners can socialize in a beautiful environment. The Palm Springs Public Arts Commission and Dog Park Subcommittee commissioned artist Phill Evans to design and build an unusual iron fence equipped with double gates that will not only be pleasing to the eye but also insure that no dogs can run out when someone enters the park.

The Palm Springs Dog Park features grass, trees, awnings, a smaller fenced off area for smaller dogs, recycled picnic benches & trash bins, pooper scoopers, 11 antique fire hydrants (canine bathroom facilities!) and dual-drinking fountains made to accommodate both the low-to-the-ground pooches and their taller owners! Everyone is expected to clean up after their pet and see that their dogs exhibit appropriate behavior.

The Palm Springs Dog Park is entirely funded by public contributions from dog lovers all over the world. contact the department of Parks and Recreation for details. (760) 323-8272

  • So much space and the environment is so friendly with amazing people and dogs. Best dog park in the desert in my opinion really does feel like a park specifically for dogs!
  • Busy, busy park. There's a small section for small dogs & a much larger area for the larger ones. The large section can get pretty crazy. My dog got very overwhelmed with all the activity going on. Some dogs are pretty aggressive & not well supervised. We had to leave due to an unsupervised dog that was intimidating my dog & getting him all worked up. There's just too many dogs for the size of the park. Palm Springs need to offer another park or two given large population of dogs in the city. One with a splash pad would be incredible given the heat we experience here.
