River Run Dog Park

The KVPD's 2 acre dog park provides our canine companions
a safe area to exercise and play
off-leash. Additionally it gives dog lovers an opportunity to socialize while their dogs interact. The park includes a divided fenced in area for small and large dogs, parking close to the site, shade trees, and trash cans. Dog Park is located at River Road Park, turn at the Centrue Bank Softball Complex and follow along to the River. Dog Park is on the left.

Dog Park Usage

Once a dog park permit is purchased, visitors can use the dog park year-round during park hours. The dog park may periodically be closed for restoration, mowing, maintenance, or due to weather conditions.
