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).

Park permits are now sold at two Parks & Rec locations. Click here for more information.
