Are you a dog lover considering building or buying a new home in Blaine MN?

Dog owners in Blaine can bring their dogs to Happy Acres Park for fun and exercise. A dog park and off-leash area opened there earlier this month with signs, bag dispensers, waste containers, and all.

Both the Blaine Park Board and Blaine City Council agreed to allow dogs within the three hockey rinks at Happy Acres Park. The first hockey rink to the east will be for small dogs, and the second and third hockey rinks will be for medium and large dogs.

New Hope, Crystal and Eden Prairie are successfully using hockey rinks as dog parks at a very minimal cost. The dog park and off-leash area at Happy Acres Park, located at 11900 7th Street in Blaine MN, will stay open through mid-November.

The dog park is available on a 1-year trial basis. It will be monitored, and a follow-up study will be presented to the Park Board and City Council.
