July 27: Thursday
Yappy Hour

Multiuse field at Posse Grounds Park

Weekly social hour on the cool grass for friendly dogs and their owners.

Yappy Hour is a one hour per week event that takes place on the beautiful green grass of the multi-use field at Posse Grounds Park. Under normal circumstances, City Code and Park Rules require all dogs to be on a leash and to remain off the athletic fields at the park, but during this event we get to bend those rules!

Know before you go:

  • Owners must pick up after their pets.
  • If there is an increase in the amount of off-leash users on the athletic fields during non-event times, this event may be canceled.
  • PLEASE NOTE: the multi-use field is not a dog park. There are gaps in the fence where a pet could potentially squeeze through. There is no division of small dog vs large dog areas. Owners are responsible for the safety and behavior of their dogs.

Help us to make this a fun gathering for your dog!

For more event information, please contact the Sedona Parks and Recreation office at (928) 282-7098.
