Battle Creek Dog Park
Battle Creek Dog Park, located in south Maplewood MN, is run by Ramsey County Park & Rec and a dedicated group of volunteers. It is considered by many to be the best dog park in the metro area. Click here to see the WCCO article stating just that.
Another plus is that Battle Creek Dog Park is free. A permit is not required and parking is plentiful and free. However, donations from those that can afford it are greatly appreciated.
Battle Creek Off-Leash Dog Park is a Ramsey County Off Leash Dog Park in Maplewood, Minnesota. It is a spacious 35 acre area that is fully fenced in. The dog park has miles of wooded trails, two small ponds and one larger swimming pond that is fenced off, 3 entrance gates*, two "playgrounds" and lots of friendly people. There is no water (besides the ponds), so be sure to bring some. (For a brochure of all 4 Ramsey County Off Leash Dog Parks, click HERE, to go to their website click HERE).
As described at A Little Brown Blog
"The off-leash area contains two social area fields and several ponds nestled in rolling hills. There is plenty of room to play with others or stroll in solitude. Recent improvements include lots of benches, clean poop bag boxes, trash cans and wood chips for the paths."
