Where can I find a dog park?

Off-leash dog parks provide excellent opportunities for exercise, socialization, and training. 


Iowa City Parks and Recreation maintains two off-leash dog parks: Thornberry Off-Leash Dog Park and Rita's Ranch. Iowa City's off-leash dog parks are maintained by the City of Iowa City and were founded in partnership with the Johnson County Dog Park Action Committee. A dog park permit tag or day pass is required and dogs must have a current rabies vaccination. Learn about Iowa City dog parks.


A dog park is planned in North Liberty with land secured by the City of North Liberty and a partnership with the Johnson County Dog Park Action Committee. Learn about the North Liberty dog park.
