This popular park (voted “Best of the Twin Cities” by City Pages readers in 2010) is so near the airport that you often hear and see planes landing and taking off. But you may not notice, since your dog will be too busy socializing and running up and down the wooded and grassy slopes of the park. Since it is not managed by the Minneapolis Park Board, no amenities exist here (including trash—there are no receptacles). Bring water and poop bags with you, and take them when you leave. No permit required.
