We have seven off-leash recreation areas for your dog to run, play, and meet new friends.
Trail markers along the park property line let dog park users know when they are leaving the dog park and entering National Park Service (NPS) land. The NPS enforces a national leash law for pets.
You need to buy a permit before you bring your dog(s) to an Off-Leash Dog Park.
Your permit is valid at all seven dog parks.
Minneapolis residents must get a City of Minneapolis Pet License for each dog before applying for an Off-Leash Permit.
You must vaccinate your dog(s) for rabies before buying an Off-Leash Dog Park Permit.
Effective 2018, there will be an interim process in place to purchase annual off-leash permits.
The interim system for purchasing permits will be done through our Active Communities system, the same system used for program registrations, gift card sales, and most other transactions with the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board.

Handlers must observe the following rules when inside Off-Leash Dog Parks (OLDPs).
In the event of an emergency, aggressive dog or criminal activity, dial 911.
All reports about dog bites and attacks will be reviewed to determine whether the aggressive dog will be declared dangerous under state statue or city ordinance. If such a declaration is made, we will immediately revoke the off-leash permit.
