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).
Also see the article "A Dog'sLife" in the August 2015 issue of Our City magazine.
K9Splash! is our annual dog swim event. The dates for 2016 are August 13 and August 14. Time: 10:30 * am to 5:30 pm. Location: Bever Park Pool. Cost and Forms: Watch for these updates to come out in the Spring of 2016!
* Small Dogs Only will be allowed in the pool from 9:30 am to 10:30. After that they may stay or head home, but the big dogs will be welcome the rest of the time.See amazing pictures of dogs and people frolicking at K9Splash! 2015. More than 600 dogs and their owners enjoyed the event and some 150 volunteers helped us carry it off. Here is more information about K9Splash!.
