The Park Board currently has installed dog parks in 4 of its 6 park districts. One area not served by a dog park is south central and southwest Minneapolis.
Neighbors from Kingfield and Bryant neighborhoods have organized to request support from the Park Board for a dog park location in MLK Park. Three potential locations have been proposed: 1) The NE corner of the park (behind the tennis bubble and next to the pedestrian bridge over I-35W); 2) The SW corner of the park (along the soundwall near 42nd Street); 3) The NW corner of the park (at the corner of Nicollet and 40th Street).
The Park Board is hosting this community meeting to hear from all stakeholders to the park about the dog park proposal and the locations discussed to date. The Park Board has not yet taken any action on the dog park proposal or discussed it in committee to consider the proposal and hold a public hearing.
If you cannot attend the meeting and would like to learn more, please call the Minneapolis Park Board and your Park Board Commissioners at (612)-230-6400.
