The quiet, green, heavily-treed residential streets of Brainerd provide a greenway experience for residents in the area walking their pets. However, there are also a few parks in the area with additional green space. Brainerd Park, named for the community, is an 8-acre park with sports facilities, athletic fields, basketball, volleyball and tennis courts, a spray pool, a playground, and community buildings. This park provides green space and gardens that can be enjoyed by locals walking their pets in Brainerd.
Robichaux Park is located on the eastern border of Brainerd and is a long, narrow 13-acre park with sports facilities and fields, tennis and baseball courts, a playground, and a walking track. There are paved footpaths in this greenway for pets and pedestrians.
Wallace Playground Park features play equipment and a spray park for local youngsters. Access to dogs is restricted, however, the borders of this green space provide a shady walking destination.
