“I want to meet another 4 legged friend!”

I don't remember a time in my life when I haven't had a dog! My experience ranges from having dogs on a farm to my current urban life with my 13 year old boxer lab mix. I love to explore Minneapolis with an enthusiastic 4 legged friend!

I have been married to Travis for 19 years. I have a teenage daughter who loves to play volleyball. I have two dogs, Sadie, a Weimaraner, who is 10 years old, and Bud, a German Shorthaired Pointer, who is 6 years. My dogs and I go on at least 2 walks a day. The neighbors know me as the dog lady. In the summer I enjoy camping, boating, hiking, and biking. In the winter I enjoy snowmobiling and snowshoeing. The dogs are usually along for the ride when possible.

Dog Walking in Burnsville

Looking to get out and explore Burnsville, Minnesota with your four-legged companion? There's no shortage of attractions in the area, ranging from fully-equipped dog parks to miles of outdoor trails.

One spot that is not to miss is the Alimagnet Dog Park. Amenities are expansive - the park offers double-gated access entry gates to over seven acres of off-leash, fully-fenced play area, with mulched walking paths, benches, doggie bags, and a scenic pond. Designed to still be accessible during harsh winters, this park even has heated dog bowls so your pooch can stay hydrated, even when the pond is frozen over. In 2005, this park was voted as one of the best dog parks in the nation during a "Dog Fancy" magazine contest.

Want something a little more wild? Explore one of Burnsville's many hiking trails. The Luce Line State Trail, over 75 miles long, was formerly an abandoned rail line. Now, it provides access to lakes and rare wildlife. A popular dog trail is the Hiawatha Trail, which winds through parks and the downtown area. Eventually, it meets the Minnehaha Trail, which boasts a beautiful 53-foot waterfall.

As for events in the area, Burnsville offers many dog-friendly options. In December, there's a tree lighting ceremony in Nicollet Commons Park. In the summertime, there's an annual International Festival of Burnsville. This cultural festival, offering food, music, and vendor booths, welcomes leashed dogs.

The Cliff Road/Route 13 neighborhood in Burnsville offers four parks for dog walking and exploring. North River Hills Park and Cedarbridge Park are two multi-use parks where your dog can walk on leash through trails or sit at picnic tables with you. They’re great, but they’re dwarfed by Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge and Black Dog Park respectively. Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge offers dozens of miles of trails. Though your dog must be leashed, there’s still plenty to do. Black Dog Park has an off-leash area designated, though it is not fenced.

The heavily populated neighborhood where county roads 42 and 11 meet is built around beautiful spaces that support families, human and not. You can take your leashed dog to Wood Park, Echo Park, or Twin Lakes Park for leashed fun and trail walking. The real draw of the neighborhood, however, is Alimagnet Dog Park. Whatever your dog likes, this park has. Climbing rocks? Check. Pond for swimming? Check. More than seven acres of FENCED off leash area? Check, check, check! Alimagnet Dog Park is open year-round, with heated shelters and water bowls for winter adventures.

Route 13 and Nicollet Ave define a mixed landscape in Burnsville. On the one hand, there are three parks for you to choose from if you’re heading through the area towards the business center of Burnsville. Arbor Park, Timberland Knolls, and Rolling Meadows Park are all city block sized oases. Your dog can stretch some muscles on leash, and you both can work up an appetite for lunch or dinner. Mediterranean Cruise Cafe serves up a variety of dishes to their outdoor patio. Jo Jo’s Rise and Wine offers delicious baked goods, some of which are dog-friendly, as well as coffee and teas.

Day Park and Earley Lake Trail are an on-leash nature experience worth repeating. The simple, two mile trail completely circles Earley Lake, creating a beautiful walking or jogging experience that stays fresh because it never doubles back on itself. Once warmed up, head to another main draw of the neighborhood: the choice of dog-friendly food options! You and your pup can relax outside Lucky’s 13 Pub for traditional pub food or choose Burger Jones for a different style of patio-snacking. If you want something straightforward, Blue Ox Sandwiches rounds out your trio of choices with over twenty outdoor tables to choose from.

Orchard Garden has two parks that will make your dog sit up and beg for more. The first is West Buck Hill Park. If you don’t have time for a long walk, head to West Buck Hill Park. The sloped ground and variety of short trails allows you to pick the workout that makes sense for your dog. If you need to speed through your workout, choosing steeper trails is a great way to work off energy quickly. Orchard Garden is also right next to Crystal Lake. You have easy access to Crystal Lake West’s parking spaces, and the west end of Crystal Lake trails for hiking and walking.
