Staring Lake Park
Hours of Operation:
6am to 10pm
Size: 5.7 acres
Permit: No, but license required
Located adjacent to the Staring Lake Archery Range, this 5.7 acres of fenced area offers spacious woods, an open area and natural walking paths. This park closes after the first sufficient snow fall of the year, to utilize the area as a Nordic ski trail area. Fully fenced, wooded.

This is a fine park, with lots of woods and a smaller open area. Due to the high quantity of woods, the mosquitos are heavy in the summer. I have found that the chance of meeting other dogs at this park is less reliable than at Bryant Lake and Bloomington.

My Basset and Lab/Aussie are big fans of this park. They have made lots of dog friends - most of the dog parents are nice, too. The only downfall is that with all the rain we've had the mosquitos are horrible.

My golden retriever loves this park! A lot bigger and with more trails than the park off Flying Cloud in Eden Prairie. The only bummer is it closes during the winter when ski season is happening, but last winter (2011-2012) there wasn't a lot of snow so it was open year round!
