Nearly 25,000 people live in Champlin, a city in Hennepin County, Minnesota that's also a suburb of northern Minneapolis. Champlin residents love that it has all the amenities of a big city, but the feel of a small town with a close-knit community. The city's parks and recreation system is vast, and there are more than 300 acres of city-owned parkland in 32 different locations. There's also an 800-acre section of the Elm Creek Park Reserve in town, and you'll find splash pads, sports courts and fields, walking trails, and all sorts of other fun things to do in Champlin.
Many of these parks and trails are dog-friendly, but when you're looking for something a little more low-key than a trip to the park with your dog, check out one of Champlin's several dog-friendly restaurants! One such restaurant is Willy McCoys on Business Park Boulevard North. There are 25 outdoor tables at Willy McCoys where your dog can hang out at your side while you dine on dishes like flat iron steak, burgers, pasta, and much more. Willy McCoys has a Prohibition-era theme, but rest assured they still have a great drink menu! This is just one spot in and around Champlin where your dog can accompany you for a day of fun.
