Quartzsite Dog Park

Yes, Quartzsite has a very nice Dog Park open to the public!

Benefits: Dog owners bring their pets to the park to get exercise and socialize with other pets. Dog owners do the same thing. While the dogs are playing, community members are more likely to form relationships, participate in conversation and exchange community information such as events, doctors, and veterinarians.

Off-leash parks are good for dogs, their guardians and the whole community.

Off-leash parks:
  • Promote good canine physical health and socialization, reducing nuisance behaviors and making dogs better canine citizens
  • Discourages delinquent and criminal activity in parks
  • Encourage people to exercise and stimulate social interaction with other people
  • Accommodate senior citizens and the disabled, who cannot always walk their dogs on a leash
  • Build a community of people committed to parks, community involvement and the environment
  • Encourage compliance with local leash laws and reduce the number of dogs likely to end up in shelters
WATCH FOR IMPROVEMENTS COMING SOON! The Town of Quartzsite will be adding shade shelters and is looking to add another section to the existing Dog Park.
