Minutes from the Twin Cities, Inver Grove Heights offers a wealth of opportunities for you and Fido to explore together. With 24 city parks, two nature preserves, and five trail systems, you have your pick of ways to get outside and enjoy the fresh air with your furry friend.
Head to South Valley Park off 70th Street E to get some exercise with your pooch. This 98-acre gem includes a small lake, a softball field, and 6,840 feet of trails that wander through wooded areas. Bring along some lunch or a snack and have a picnic at one of the tables in the park.
If you're looking for a place to take your pup and go fishing, head to the Lions Park/McGroarty Park complex. These conjoined parks cover 8 acres of land, and the area contains a good fishing pond. Make sure your special pal is on a retractable leash or a lead up to six feet long.
Although there are plenty of op-paw-tunities to get out and explore with your pup in Inver Grove Heights, there aren't any pet-friendly restaurants here, so if you want to share a meal with your pal, you'll need to head outside the city.
