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).
Our annual Dog Swim event K9Splash! is scheduled this year for Saturday and Sunday August 15 & 16.
More than 150 volunteers helped carry off this event. Here is more information.
Please explore our pages to learn more about us, our history and goals, information about the parks, and opportunities to volunteer
