With fertile land located on the shore of the Cedar River, Austin makes up a picturesque and wooferdeful place to live in Minnesota. This isn't only true for humans, but also for the four-legged residents of Austin, thanks to the abundance of dog-friendly parks and three veterinarians available here.
The best place to bring Fido is the Austin Dog Park, a small but fenced-in area that allows your pup to run around without being on a leash. There's a separate area for small and large pups, free toys, dog-sized water fountains, and clean-up stations, and double-gated entrances in both areas. Additional features for humans are picnic tables, benches, trash bins, and nighttime lights.
Todd Park is the largest park in the city, and hosts lots of outdoor activities. There are over 11 baseball diamonds that are enclosed from the rest of the park, over 1 mile of paved pathways, plenty of open space, and fishing access along Wolf Creek. The park is dog-friendly to leashed pups, and allows pups access to water fountains, clean-up stations, picnic shelters, and ball fields.
You can enjoy a soothing walk in one of the cities many parks, or find a good hiking trail that winds through the outskirts of the city. Wherever you go with Fido, you'll always be welcomed in Austin.
The neighborhood of Central Austin is the busiest community in the city, with rows of small businesses and shopping centers. The Horace Austin Park is the top place to go in the neighborhood, thanks to its two plots on both sides of Will Pond. With trails that stretch around the pond and pass over it with a bridge, and span over 1.8 miles throughout the park, your pup has lots to explore here. The paths are made from concrete, and lead to access points to the pond, a boat launch, fishing dock, playground, picnic pavilion, gazebo, and sitting area. Dogs are welcome in the park while on a leash, and can spend lots of time playing in the open areas or walking along the paths with access to water fountains and clean-up stations.
Downtown Austin is south of the center of Austin, and continues to grow with lots of businesses and urban centers.

Outside the dog park are paved paths, a fishing pond, playground, amphitheater, and open space that is also dog-friendly. Outside the dog park, pups must be on a leash.

Western Austin is west from the downtown area of Austin, and is mostly comprised of suburban residential homes.

Other features of the park include a paved walking path, enclosed baseball field, tennis courts, picnic shelter, water fountains, and clean-up stations.
