The Las Cruces Dog Park is just south of the Meerscheidt Recreation Center on Hermosa St.
The park has three gates, three shade structures, a fountain (for dogs and humans), a water feature with a hose on a cement "pad" that is about 10 ft. by 10 ft., about 26 young trees, six benches, three "waste stations" with bag dispensers and trash cans, and numerous movable lawn chairs.
The northeast section of the park is sectioned off as a "Special Needs Area." There are now two separate gates allowing access to the Special Needs Area from outside the park.
The park has one solar-powered light for park users after sunfall. Legal park hours are 5:00 AM to 11:00 PM daily (it's never locked, tho'). The busiest time in hot months is around sunset. Mornings before it gets too hot are also quite popular. Upon entering the first gate, remove leashes before passing through the second gate into the main area of the park. This is safer, as it allows your dog to move about freely without feeling the need to protect you.
Get poop bags for your dogs at the station near the entrance. The city does not manage or clean the park; Las Cruces Dog Park Coalition does, with help from all park users. Please do your part.
