Dog-Friendly Places in Saint Paul

Dog-Friendly Places in Saint Paul

Yes, your dog is adorable. Please bring your dog to Saint Paul.

If you want to explore the city but you’re worried about leaving your pup behind, we’re here for you. We’re also here to play with your dog. Just let us know.

Dog Parks

High Bridge Dog Park

Explore some of Saint Paul’s 26.2 miles of the Mississippi River and visit the High Bridge Dog Park. It’s one of the city’s leash-free parks, and you’ll score awesome views of the city from the High Bridge itself.

Lowertown Dog Park at CHS Field

Not only is CHS Field an architectural beauty, but it’s also dog-friendly. The designers included the Lowertown Dog Park in the Northwest corner of the stadium, and it’s open every day from sunrise to sunset. 

Meeker Island Dog Park

This small dog beach is more for easy access to playtime than socializing, but your dog will enjoy the opportunity to swim in the river at this off-leash dog park. It’s a cool chance to see the Meeker Island Dam, too.
