Pup places: Going off leash

Oh, the dog days of summer. Nothing beats a nice day outdoors, and for many, the family dog adds to the fun. Did you know the City has two off-leash recreation areas?

Your four-legged friend can roam free and hit the ground running at the 25-acre, off-leash recreation area at Nesbitt Avenue and West 110th Street, and the double broomball rink off-leash recreation area at Tretbaugh Park, West 90th Street and Tretbaugh Drive. Happy hounds abound as dogs and their humans enjoy socializing, exercise, fresh air and nature. For off-leash recreation rules and other information, visit blm.mn/off-nesbitt or blm.mn/off-tretb, or call 952-563-8877.
