Dog Parks

Off-Leash Dog Areas (aka Dog Parks) are unique fenced areas that offer an opportunity for your pet to interact with other area dogs. There is no charge for using the facilities, but dogs must be licensed and have an updated immunization record. Be prepared to show proof upon entering.

These areas are available at:

  • Broemmelsiek Park - 1795 Highway DD, Defiance, MO 63341
    The nearly 5-acre area features a covered shelter, grove of shade trees and a small pond for dogs to splash and play.

  • Quail Ridge Park - 560 Interstate Dr., Wentzville, MO 63385
    The 1.5-acre area features two separate areas for large and small dogs, covered shelter, and water available near the parking lot.

  • Veterans Tribute Park - 101 Kisker Rd., St. Charles, MO 63304
    The 3-acre area is divided into two separate areas for large and small dogs. Water is available outside the main fence.
