Help Us Name Nampa's New Dog Park!


The City of Nampa Parks and Recreation Department invites the community to complete a survey to select the name for Nampa’s new dog park. 

In 2022, a community survey was given to submit names for the new dog park and over 100 park names were submitted by survey participants. Nampa’s Volunteer Dog Park Committee has narrowed the list to the top five:

  • Happy Tails Dog Park 
  • Sycamore Hill Dog Park
  • Happy Hound Dog Park
  • Huckleberry Dog Park
  • Winston Dog Park

We invite the community to vote for their favorite name in the survey at which is open through April 30, 2023. The name will be announced prior to the park’s opening date. 

The new 9.5-acre dog park is located in the southwest part of the Nampa on Smith Avenue between Midway Road and Middleton Road. Nampa’s second dog park is projected to open summer/fall 2023, pending construction completion and turfgrass establishment. The dog park will feature paved walking trails, a parking lot, a separate small dog area, misting water stations, open greenspace and restrooms. 

The new park will help meet the demands of Nampa’s population growth and is funded by using park impact fees paid by new development. To learn more about the new dog park visit
