Adventure Description

Tanner Dog Park is the premier off-leash dog park in northeast Salt Lake. There are 13 acres of off-leash trails and another 10 acres of on-leash sections. Located at the mouth of Parley's Canyon, the park sits just below the I-80 freeway where it meets I-215. Officially named Parley's Historic Nature Park, the area has several historic monuments and ruins. People love the convenient location and the the small river that runs through the grounds. The river provides two watering holes for dogs to use, each located at either end of the trail. Trash cans and waste bags are provided as well, but it is a good idea to bring your own bags just in case. Parleys Trail cuts through the park, and there is a BMX bike jumping track. Tanner Park has tennis courts and a baseball field, making the general area quite popular.

Remember to start the trail with the dogs on leash; when you reach the bottom of the hill at the first watering hole, dogs are officially allowed to be off leash. It is about a mile from the parking lot to the second watering hole, which is at the far eastern end of the park.
