Best Dog Park - 2009
Minnehaha Off-Leash Recreation Area
Cities aren't the ideal place for a dog itching to stretch its legs. Deafening intersections, sizzling concrete, and small backyards are no place for man's best friend. But there is one local spot that's heaven on earth for a pup living the city life. The Minnehaha Dog Park has everything a dog could ask for: 4.3 acres of forest and riverfront to explore, endless trails of scents to follow, and countless friends to play with. Dog owners should be warned that the park isn't for all pups. Its sheer size requires dogs that can be trusted to stay close, or you'll likely spend a whole day trying to find the brat when he bounds out of sight.
