Where to Run with Your Dog in River North


We all know Colorado is famous for its gorgeous scenery, but why should humans get to have all the fun? At Marq at RiNo, our pet-friendly apartments are perfectly positioned for a fun-filled lifestyle for you and your dog.

If you have a high-energy dog who needs to run before work, check out our beautifully maintained dog run area. If you and your dog like to log some miles, plan an afternoon of exploration on the Colorado Front Range Trail.

However you and your dog like to run and play, Marq at RiNo is the place to be.

On-Site Dog Run

For ultimate convenience, let your dog wear herself out at our community dog run. Perfect for early morning jaunts and after-work play sessions, the on-site dog run is the easiest place to let your dog stretch her legs. As an added bonus, it’s also a great place for you and your dog to meet your neighbors and make some new friends.

South Platte River Trail

If you enjoy riverside adventures, be sure to check out the South Platte River Trail. Featuring 18 miles of paved pathway, the trail weaves through downtown Denver and offers easy access to many of metro’s most beautiful parks. Plus, the South Platte River Trail intersects many other recreational trails so you can mix up your run as often as you please.

Colorado Front Range Trail

Denver is a city dedicated to green and sustainable living. There’s no better example of that than the Colorado Front Range Trail. While much of the trail is still in the works, the goal is to connect 15 major Colorado cities for easy biking, commuting, and exploring. For now, many of the trails have already been built and intersect with nearby trails including South Platte River Trail.

Commons Park

Set along the South Platte River, Commons Park features a variety of riverfront amenities. Jog the paved path through the wetlands and grassy areas while taking in the views of the Denver skyline. Make a day of it and bring along a picnic for you and your pup to enjoy under one of the park’s beautiful mature trees.

City of Cuernavaca Park

While jogging along the South Platte River Trail, stop for a breather at City of Cuernavaca Park. Set just north of Commons Park, this small urban park features beautiful mountain and city views as well as picnic tables for an afternoon meal.
