Westminster has three off-leash areas that are great amenities for dog owners. The popularity of these makes it mandatory that all users follow the rules and regulations. Off-leash areas provide exercise, socialization, and interaction opportunities for both dogs and people. The success of these depend on all users being responsible for the actions of both their dogs and themselves.

Westminster Hills Open Space Off-Leash Area, parking lots located at 10499 Simms St. and 11610 W. 100th Ave.
