I’ve driven by it many times and knew it was a dog park, but I never realized how impressive it was until I visited Cosmo dog park with our two dogs, my 11 year old son and his friend.  What I thought would be a 20 minute stay quickly turned into an enjoyable hour watching our two small dogs run un-leashed in the fenced enclosures and remind us how afraid of the water they are.  The dog in the picture is not either one of  them.  Here’s a quick video of a water loving dog

Cosmo Dog Park was the winner of DOG FANCY’s Dog Park of the Year for 2007, a year after opening in July 2006.   It is the only Dog Park in the Phoenix area with a lake, which many dogs thoroughly love! A detailed map shows the many amenities offered in this dog paradise.  The 4 acre park provides two dog wash stations, a wet dog area,  an lighted open dog park, and a timid dog area.  This is in addition to the ramadas, walking trails, basketball court, restroom,  picnic tables and amphitheatre.

With all the happily barking dogs and the way the park has been built lower than the surrounding area, you’d never know it is right next to the 202 Santan Freeway, except when you’re arriving and leaving.   Cosmo Dog Park is another addition to the many great parks in Gilbert, including Freestone Park and McQueen Park.   The easy freeway access makes this dog lover’s dream park accessible to many desireable Gilbert communities including many Gilbert waterfront communities such as The Islands, Val Vista Lakes, Stonebridge Lakes and Lago Estancia.  For help locating your dream Gilbert home, click on search for Gilbert homes.            dscf2649
