Dog Parks

We have two dog parks in Brooklyn Park where your four legged friends can run, play, and meet new friends.

Dog Parks

Off-leash dog parks

Brooklyn Park has 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.

Tips for the off-leash dog parks

To ensure a fun environment for you and your dog, please follow these off-leash dog park tips:

  • Make sure your dog has all vaccinations
  • Bring ample water for your dog(s)
  • Extend common courtesy to all other dog park users
  • Pick up after your dog and bring a spare dog bag to share
  • Do not bring food or dog toys into off-leash dog park as these items may create a conflict
  • Do not bring glass containers into off-leash dog park

Rules for the off-leash dog parks

  • Dogs must have ID tags and proof of current vaccinations
  • Dogs must be leashed prior to entering and upon leaving the off-leash area and in transition corridors
  • Dogs should be off leash when in the off-leash area, except as a temporary measure to re-direct activity. Do not let your unleashed dog approach leashed dogs; a leashed dog cannot escape a tense or scary situation, making its behavior less predictable
  • Dog handlers must have a visible leash at all times
  • Dog handlers must be in verbal control of their dogs at all times and prevent aggressive behavior, biting, fighting or excessive barking
  • Dog handlers are responsible for providing water for themselves and their dog
  • Dog handlers must be at least 18 years of age or accompanied by an adult
  • Dog handlers are liable for damage or injury inflicted by their dogs
  • Dog handlers must possess a device for cleanup and disposal of feces
  • Dogs in heat are not allowed
  • Dogs must stay within signed boundaries
  • Dog handlers must comply with all other park rules and regulations
  • Animals determined by ordinance to be “dangerous dogs” are not permitted off of a leash or within the off-leash area
  • A maximum of three dogs per handler is allowed
