Minneapolis Off-Leash Dog Parks

Our four-legged friends often need time to run, play and meet new friends. The Minneapolis Park System offers seven off-leash dog parks for dogs to exercise alongside their human companions and fellow canines. An Off-Leash Dog Park Permit is required to use Minneapolis dog parks.
