Cosmo Dog Park
This Gilbert pooch park has been nationally recognized by Dog Fancy Magazine as the fourth-best dog park in the country. Named after Gilbert’s own K9 hero, Cosmo, the 4-acre fenced park features a dog lake, dog drinking fountains and wash stations, and even designated areas for “active and timid dogs.”
