Wednesday Winner: Minnehaha Falls Off-Leash Dog Park

This week Wednesday Winner is going local… as in Minnesota local.

I’ve always been a frequent user of another dog park (name not given because I kind want to keep it a secret), but recently I decided to give the Minnehaha Falls Off-Leash Dog Park a try. It was a hot and humid day and the dogs needed a little water time. Luckily, Minnehaha Falls has a plenty of that!

Located off of 54th Street and Hiawatha in Minneapolis, Minnehaha Falls Off-Leash Dog Park is spectacular. It’s huge, deeply wooded and runs along the Mississippi River. It has tons of trails, beaches (when it doesn’t rain for days on end) and water to spare. My dogs absolutely love it!

You need a permit to use the park, but it’s well worth it for the fun your dogs will have playing in the water or running along the trails.

Daisy, Jasper and I usually spend about 2 hours just playing along the beach. Jasper’s favorite activity is chasing the waves (a typical herding dog) – he really does think he’s going to catch one! Daisy never learned to swim, but she loves to wade in the water and dip her snout in it.

Check out some of the photos and videos below.

So this week’s Wednesday Winner is the Minnehaha Falls Off-Leash Dog Park!
