Moorhead rests on the western border of Minnesota, along Red River. Despite the small town lifestyle, the area has become popular since being referenced in two different movies, and home to one of the very first Dairy Queens. The city has become pretty famous among dog-walkers too, thanks to its open fields, dog-friendly parks, multiple trails, and 2 animal hospitals.
Woodlawn Park is the largest park in the city, and has something for everyone, including paved trails, open fields, forested paths, and a pond for fishing. The park is dog-friendly to leashed pups, and allows access to fenced-in tennis courts, a picnic pavilion, a playground, restrooms, water fountains, benches, and trash bins. The park's trail extends .7 miles and connects to the Moorhead Viking Ship Park Bike Trail, a long multi-use trail that follows the river.
One of the most popular parks in the city is known as Gooseberry Mound Park, thanks to its large, open area along Red River. There's a boat launch, fishing spots, shaded sitting areas, and lots of room to run around with your pooch. Dogs do have to remain on a leash, but they can enjoy access to restrooms, a playground, two picnic pavilions, paved walkways, water fountains, and benches.
There's no better place than Moorhead to walk Fido, thanks to its dedication to giving Fido some outdoor time through parks like Riverfront Park, Northeast Park, and Alm Park.
