The Ankeny Dog Park is a beautiful 7.5-acre park that allows dogs of all sizes to run freely in an entirely fenced-in area. The Dog Park features a half-acre pond, separate small and large dog areas, and open green space for dogs to run. A Dog Park Pass is required to visit this park. Annual passes are available by registering online.
