Dog Park


Off-leash dog parks

Our four legged friends often need time to run, play and meet new friends.  The City of Brooklyn Park offers two dog parks; Brookdale Park and the Environmental Park Area. The dog parks are for dogs to exercise alongside their human companions and fellow canines and are open year-round during regular park hours.

Leashes are required in all other parks and trails.

  • Bring ample water for your dog(s)

  • Pick up after your dog and bring a spare dog bag to share
