Local Parks: Maplewood Dog Park

sign for kellogg park

Maplewood Dog Park is located in Kellogg Park

The Maplewood Dog Park is a wonderful place to take dogs for some off leash fun. It is located in Kellogg Park at 2531 Circle Drive, Maplewood, MO 63143.

There are not many places in an urban setting where dogs are able to enjoy off leash fun. The parks focus is on the dogs. And the dogs have a great time socializing with the other dogs and getting their play time in. Another added benefit is that when the dogs are having fun, the dog owners from around the area get to meet and socialize among themselves and friendships are formed. A real community of people develops through regular meetings at the dog park. It’s a social club where¬†both dogs and their owners look forward to being active members.

This is the gate one enters to get inside the Maplewood Dog Park. There is an area for large dogs straight ahead and to the left is the area for small dogs.

The Maplewood Dog Park opened in 2005. There are two separate fenced in areas for the dogs to play. One side is for large dogs and the other side is for all the other dogs. Water is available in the park for owners to fill up dog bowls, chairs for owners to use, and there are trash cans for dog waste. There is even a pool area for dogs to enjoy when the weather is hot (bring a towel in case your dog gets soaked).

In addition to the dog park amenities, there is a very nice playground available for children to use in Kellogg Park just outside the dog park area along with an open field to play on.

There is plenty of green space for people to play on just outside the fenced in area of the dog park.

The dog park is open from dawn until dusk except in the winter time when it closes at 7PM.

Membership to the dog park is required either through Maplewood City Hall or online. Proof of vaccinations and a photo of the dogs being registered is required to become a member. Digital photos are preferred and can be emailed to: dogpark@cityofmaplewood.com. Members receive a pass code to use to open the gate at the dog park.

Memberships for residents are $20 for the first dog per calendar year. Each additional dog is $5. In addition to Maplewood residents, residents of Richmond Heights, Brentwood, and Shrewsbury qualify for residential rates. Non-residents pay $50 for each dog per calendar year.

There are some simple dog park rules that must be followed . They range from no puppies under 4 months allowed to no alcoholic beverages, no dog food or treats, no leashes, no digging, and no dogs in heat allowed.

This is one of the few dedicated dog parks in the Mid-County area and is a great place to take dogs to have fun, exercise, and make new friends. Residents of this area are very fortunate to have such a place to venture to for some outdoor fun with their dogs.

  1. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?

    Thanks a lot!

    • You can use a site like jotform.com to generate your forms. That site has a built in captcha. You could also use one of the many captcha plugins available to wordpress by searching plugins on the wordpress site. I hope this helps!
