The city of Shakopee is a far southwestern suburb of the Twin Cities. With 32 neighborhood and community parks and over 60 miles of trails, this is a pawesome place for dogs and their owners. When you need veterinary care for your special pal, you can take your pick from five clinics in town.
Take a scenic stroll with your furry friend. You can connect to Dean Lake Trail off Dean's Lake Blvd. Follow the loop that includes boardwalk areas as you and your pooch walk or jog through these beautiful wetlands. Dogs on a leash are allowed to join you.
Another puptacular trail is the Lake O'Dowd Trail. This nature path wanders along the shores of Lake O'Dowd and offers spectacular scenery in the fall. There's a fishing pier here where you can drop a line while your canine pal relaxes by your side.
At the edge of downtown, take Fido to Quarry Lake Park. There are walking trails and a dock for non-motorized boats. Enjoy a peaceful stroll along the lake with your fur baby or try your hand at fishing here. Dogs need to be on a leash in this public space.
Shakopee is a delightful place for dogs and their owners to get outdoors together.
