Jake’s Dog Park

It’s time to socialize a little with your four-legged friends. Talking Rock proudly offers a community dog park, Jake’s Corner, for all types and sizes of dogs.  Named after a dog owned by Harvard Investments President and CEO Craig Krumwiede, Jake’s Corner features fresh water changed frequently, a few doggie toys and many opportunities for newfound friendships.


It’s the perfect area to sit back and relax while your furry friend roams among others of his or her own kind. Not only does the park showcase new grass and shaded rocking chairs, but it also allows pet owners to attend weekly get-togethers, which is a great way for both you and your pet to exercise and socialize.


In the summer months, the park features a Yappy Hour on Tuesday mornings at 7:30 a.m. So, try to beat the heat and bring your dog to Jake’s Corner for a little early morning play time! On Wednesdays, the park offers another Yappy Hour designated specifically for small dogs from 5–6 p.m. This allows time for your small, four-legged friend to romp and roll all over with other small pooches.

Jake’s Corner makes it possible for furry friends to exercise and explore while you meet and greet with others in the community. Each dog can dance (or chase) to the beat of his or her own drum in this spacious outdoor setting. Talking Rock also features a Thursday night Yappy Hour, from 3:30-5 p.m., for you and your furry family. Come mingle with other pups and pals while enjoying beer, wine and cocktails, which are available by subscription.


Talking Rock is not only known for providing a relaxing community lifestyle, but also for its pet-friendly environment. What better way to enjoy Arizona’s climate than by roaming in the park? Jake’s Corner offers both you and your furry family great opportunities to engage with one another. Come and see for yourself what’s got everybody’s tail wagging.
