New Dog Park Coming (And You Can Name It)

This June we’ll be adding another romping ground to our directory of off-leash parks: The City of Oakdale’s brand-new dog park is almost ready to open.

This 4.6-acre site will be on 50th St between Helena Rd and Heather Ridge Rd., and will include fencing and woodchips for starters. In the future, they hope to add an off-street parking lot and a separate area for small dogs.

There’s just one thing missing: A name! Oakdale is asking for residents’ help in naming the new park. In addition to the naming honor, the winner will receive $100 in gift cards. Contest details here.

Folks seeking more info about the park (or just looking for fun in Oakdale this weekend) can head to the Oakdale Pet Event on Saturday, April 29 from 10:30am-3pm at Walton Park (map). Festivities include seminars, demos, disc dogs, vaccinations, pet licensing, and even FREE hot dogs.
