The eastern half of the off-leash dog park at Elk Meadow Open Space Park on Stagecoach Boulevard will be closed from May 2-27, including weekends.
Jeffco Open Space Trails Service has cleared the eastern loop trail corridor and will be constructing a new, universally accessible trail.
Areas to the west, including the fenced-in area, will still be available for dogs and owners.
The parking lot at the trailhead will also be closed. Visitors are asked to park on the north side of Stagecoach Boulevard and leash their dogs while crossing the street.
