The Military Reserve Dog Off-Leash Park is located at at the entrance to the Military Reserve, at the corner or Reserve St. and Mountain Cove Road.
Owners can run their dogs at the 10-acre Dog Park every day from sunrise to sunset. Mutt mitt dispensers and trash cans are provided for picking up after your pet. There is no water, so please bring your own.
There are also several controlled off-leash trails located in Military Reserve.
Dogs and their owners should be sure to follow the City's leash and pick-up ordinance going to and coming from the dog park, and follow the Dog Off-Leash Rules and Regulations while visiting the park.
Boise Public Works is releasing hot geothermal water into a specially built containment pond in the corner of the dog park area in the lower portion Military Reserve off Mountain Cove Road starting Tuesday, September 16th.
The public is asked to stay away from the immediate area and Public Works has taken maximum precaution to keep people out. The attached map and picture show the exact location.
The area is completely fenced with chain link and signs warn visitors and their pets to stay out. The water is 170-degrees. It could kill pets and seriously injure people even if barely touched.
The project – to repair a valve in the well house just above the pond – should be completed within a few weeks. The water will only be released intermittently. Again, it is extremely hot and people are urged to be cautious and “stay out” of the fenced area.
