Where does the City Cast Las Vegas team take their dogs for some outdoor time? Here are our favorites:

Sonja Cho Swanson: “It just has a really cool community; people will bring folding chairs and sit in a circle, and they'll share water with all the dogs. When I first got Harper, I got a lot of dog tips and advice from them, too.”

Vogue Robinson: “Just the wide open space of it — it’s good for Pokémon and good space for the dog to run around. (There are three separate dog areas and shaded human seating.) And the people are nice. That's where we take Shaka.”

Sonja Cho Swanson: “I like this one because it's really shady — there are some really big trees on that property, which is nice.” (Two areas separate small and large dogs. rates it 4 out of 5 bones.)

Dayvid Figler: “It's a big ol’ park — we don't have a lot of green spaces downtown — and it’s open from sunrise to sunset, which is very cool. It's got some grass, a little dirt. There's a small dog area, so they have their own little protected place.”

Sonja Cho Swanson: “This dog park also has a good mix of open space and shade and a really active community of people there. And I think once or twice a year, Desert Breeze will actually open up the pool so you can have a doggy pool play day.” (That day is Saturday, when Desert Breeze hosts Dog Daze of Summer.)
