Dog Walking in Mendota Heights

Just 12 minutes from the Twin Cities, Mendota Heights is a dog-friendly city boasting lakeside parks, scenic bluffs, and miles of trails. Various recreational opportunities are in store for the canine residents and tourists of Mendota Heights, and there is one animal hospital in town to ensure their well-being.

The city welcomes doggos to its parks as long as they are kept on a 6-foot leash and cleaned up after. One of the many places where you can take your furry pal for a walk is the 84-acre Valley Park. Next to the playground is a paved trail that will lead you and Fido through the woods, all the way up to Highway 13.

The Friendly Hills Park, while smaller at 15.5 acres, is another nice spot to spend a beautiful afternoon with your pooch. This park has a paved walking trail that will take you and your dog around the athletic fields, hockey rink, and pond. There is a picnic area beside the double tennis courts, so bring snacks and Fido's favorite treats.

Need to grab a bite with your pup tagging along? Drop by Caribou Coffee or Tommy Chicago's Pizzeria. Both places offer outdoor tables that you can share with your best friend.

You and Fido will definitely have a pawsome time in Mendota Heights!

About 1.5 miles from the Ivy Hills Park is the slightly larger Wentworth Park. This 10-acre site features paved walking paths that meander around wooded areas and a pond.

Let your pooch sniff and roll in the grass freely at the Mendota Heights Dog Park! Spanning 3 acres, this fenced-in, off-leash area is basically an open field where doggos can run around and mingle with other canines. Bags and trash receptacles are provided, but you'll have to bring your own water. A dog license and off-leash pass are required to use the park, so swing by the city hall first. If Fido has any energy left, visit the nearby Pilot Knob Preservation Site for a hike with a history lesson. A traditional sacred site to the Dakota people, Pilot Knob features interpretive signs and trails that educate visitors about the beginnings of Minnesota.
