DENVER (CBS4) – People who enjoy walking their dogs in Cherry Creek and Chatfield state parks will have to pay a fee to use the open space.

On Saturday both state parks began charging extra fees for free roaming dogs. The passes, in addition to the regular park entrance fees, cost either $2 a day or $20 a year.

State parks sold more than 100 annual passes on Saturday. One pass covers up to three dogs.

    What’s next, having to pay to use the “public” restrooms?

    Hope they use the extra revenue to clean up the area. I quit going b/c of all the dog poop. I udnderstand there will always be a few people who do not clean up after their animal, but it got so bad it was just disgusting. May consider using it again if they clean it up.

    They better use the funds to make them both better. Cherry Creek is a poop farm and they never take care of the road or parking lot. Chatfield is a accident wating to happen with cables and wires popping up from the ground in weird places. When the water recedes in the ponds there is old equipment that appears from the pond.
