Come On Out!

Welcome to K9COLA's Web site! We are the group that advocates for off-leash dog parks in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, metro area and we spearhead many activities and improvements for the parks. Cheyenne Park Off-Leash Area is a well-established park we have enjoyed for many years; K9 Acres Off-Leash Area opened in 2013. (See maps of the parks).

Cheyenne Off-Leash Park will close at 9 am on Sunday, September 25 due to flooding and remain closed until further notice. Please do not use this park until the okay is given. Flooding will damage fences and leave behind debris making the park unsafe! If you use the park on Friday or Saturday, September 23-24 please realize there will be no restroom facilities or trash cans.
