Dog Areas in Prescott, WI

2 Parks

Prescott is the northern gateway to the Wisconsin Great River Road National Scenic Byway, and sits at the confluence of the Mississippi and St. Croix Rivers.  It is a destination for boating, fishing and other water activities, and is surrounded by forests and rural land, making Prescott an ideal place for walks, hikes and bike rides on the many trails in the area, with Fido in tow.

One of the most popular places to visit in Prescott is Mercord Mill Park, located where the muddy, roiling waters of the Mississippi and the clear, rushing St. Croix converge. Once a flour mill, this is now a great place to watch for eagles, falcons and other raptors, as well as waterfowl. Birdwatching is a favorite activity, as are boating, hiking and fishing. The mill itself is a fascinating visitors’ site with its ancient waterwheel and crumbling stone walls.

Try traveling the Great River Road east and south, by car or bicycle, into the pastoral and forested regions of Prescott, with their cornfields, dairy farms and wooded byways. The Great River Road Visitor and Learning Center at Freedom Park in Prescott can provide all the information you need on where to stop and what to see. The views from the Freedom Park overlooks are spectacular, especially at sunset. Various areas around the park include prairie, woodland, wildlife, and a butterfly garden.

The Cedar Street neighborhood in Prescott is full of parks that encourage residents and their canine companions to get outdoors! A well-visited area among locals and visitors is the River Walk Park, which begins at the US Hwy 10 bridge over the St. Croix and passes through Mercord Mill Park on its way to Ash St. in downtown Prescott. The River Walkway in the park connects bike and walking trails together and features picnic tables and benches. Another pawsome spot to visit is the Public Square Park. This park offers a basketball court, a climbing wall and a tennis court, and Fido is welcome to join in for walks and romps on the open grassy areas, or lunch at one of the picnic tables. If you and your best friend are in more the mood for a hike through undeveloped wood and brush land in search of wildlife, the Magee Wilderness Park is for you. Covering 13 acres, it is accessible only by foot from Jefferson St.

The area’s only fenced off-leash park, Rivertown Dog Park, is located in South Hastings, just an 8-minute drive across the Mississippi River from Prescott. The park has 3 separate fenced sections: one for toy-play, another for toy-free play, and the third reserved for small or timid dogs. The park provides waste bags and receptacles, and a paved walking path that loops around the back and side. Be sure to put that leash back on once you leave the dog park. Vermillion Falls Park is also in this neighborhood, and is home to the 35-foot falls that give it its name. Besides viewing the spectacular falls, this is a great area to take a casual walk or go on an adventure. A path to the west of the falls takes you and your furry companion to an open, scenic area with streams and corn fields. Paths to the east of the falls present views of the falls, aerial views of the Vermillion River, and the ruins of a historic old mill from the 1800's. When it’s time to wet the whistle, The Bar in South Hastings has created a dog-friendly 10-table outdoor tavern experience for dog owners, complete with pizza, pretzels and other bar fare, plus a range of both mainstream and craft beers.

In the Upper West Side neighborhood, dog-friendly restaurants welcome your pup with patios and outdoor dining. Caribou Coffee’s diverse and delicious coffees, juices and teas, along with convenient sandwiches, cookies, pastries and other yummies, make it the must-stop spot for you and your pup. Local favorite Culver's serves its signature ButterBurgers and fresh frozen custard, along with Wisconsin Cheese Curds. Its menu offers chicken dishes, sandwiches, hearty soups, fresh salads, and dinners such as North Atlantic Cod, Butterfly Jumbo Shrimp, Beef Pot Roast, and Chopped Steak. Both places feature a convenient drive-through window if you don’t want to leave Fido tied outside while you order inside, as there is not service to the outdoor tables.
