Cottonwood Dog Park
Okay this isn’t technically a reservable party space, but we wanted to include it because it is our top pick for a dog park birthday party! Not only is it fully fenced and quite large, but Cottonwood Park also has several picnic tables inside the park (something most dog parks don’t have) so you can easily set up balloons, treats, and whatever other party accessories your heart desires. Just be sure to not confuse it with Big Cottonwood Park- this one is behind the Utah Department of Agriculture.
