The dog-friendly off-leash area for large dogs at Optimist Park is currently closed due to muddy conditions. The City of Laramie Parks and Recreation Department closed the fenced area to prevent potential impacts to existing vegetation.

The area will remain closed until further notice.

The city asks that people help minimize and mitigate the impacts to the area by not using the it in muddy conditions to protect the amenity for our community.

The small dog friendly off leash area at Optimist Park will remain open for use by both large and small dogs.  In addition, the dog friendly off leash area located north of the Aragon Softball Complex near 22nd and Harney will remain open.

Please feel free to contact the Parks and Recreation Director, Paul Harrison at 307-721-5260, or the Parks Manager, David Schott at 307-721-5264, with any question or concerns.
