Corvias Dog Park

Your family’s four-legged members deserve a place to play too! Our Bark Park is a fenced area where your canine friends can run and play. With separate areas for large and small dogs, you’re sure to have a “barking” good time.

Corvias' Bark Park at Fort Riley is located in the Colyer Forsyth Community off of River Road and available use by all Corvias residents.

Bark Park Rules of Use are available here.

Suggested Dog Park Etiquette for People

Once you and your dog get to the bark park, it’s tempting to just stand back and watch all the activity. But everybody will have a much more rewarding time if you observe some basic rules.

A bark park is a privilege. Please don’t let bad behavior ruin things for everyone else. Bark parks are a social, interactive experience for both the dog and the human, you may need an adjustment period to properly meet and greet the other guests. Always keep your eye on your dog. Mischief can happen quickly.

  • First time users should visit the area at non-peak times
    • The first visit can be a little stressful for both you and your dog. Ease the stress that first time by going when the park isn't so busy.
  • Observe the posted park rules
    • The Bark Park will have posted park rules at the entrance. Park users must comply with those rules for the safety of everyone and every dog!
  • Let your dog off leash as soon as you enter the fenced area
    • Leashed dogs may feel threatened and growl or bark when off-leash dogs greet them.
  • Keep walking
    • This keeps the off leash area neutral territory.
    • If your dog becomes unruly or plays rough, leash him and leave immediately.
  • Pick up after your dog
    • We need to pick up after our dogs and even pick up a few extras!
    • If you do this, you not only leave the site looking better than how you found it, you also model responsible behavior for the other dog owners.
  • Be aware that dogs have different play styles
    • Educate yourself on dog behavior.
    • Don’t bring dogs younger than four months to a dog park. Puppies have not had all the necessary inoculations that allow them to play safely with other animals.
    • Don’t bring a female dog in season. Spayed/neutered animals are recommended.
  • No smoking or eating
    • Don’t smoke or eat while at the Bark Park. Cigarette butts and food wrappers are tempting treats to dogs, but are bad for them.

Never leave your dog unattended.
