Dog Areas in Stillwater, MN

6 Groomers

East of the Twin Cities (Minneapolis - St. Paul) lies the township of Stillwater. The small community was once a prominent city in the state of Minnesota. The historic downtown area is one of the main tourist perks of Stillwater. The town is, however, also surrounded by lakes and woodlands which makes for a great outdoors holiday.

About 31% of all households in Minnesota own one dog or more. After five years of raising funds, the people of Stillwater finally received their own off-leash dog park. A blessing for the dog owners in town. While the dog park is basic, it does offer a place for dogs to run around unfettered as it is fully fenced.

Stillwater, Minnesota, is one of the end destinations of the Gateway Segment of the Willard Munger Trail. This 18.3-mile pathway starts in St. Paul and runs through parks, prairie lands, wetlands, and lakes up to the Pine Point County Park. There is a 10-mile equestrian track next to the pathway that also ends at the Pine Point Park.

Travelers with dogs can book a stay at the Super 8 Stillwater/St Paul. This hotel in town allows pets but do expect an additional fee.

    #1 North Stillwater


    North Stillwater has two great places to explore with your pup. The first is Pine Point Regional Park. The park is very large, with more than five miles of trails winding in and out of it. Your dog has to remain on leash unless they’re enjoying a dip in a pond in warm weather. There’s plenty to see, do, and smell in Pine Point. If your dog just can’t get enough of trails, Pine Point also contains the parking area for the Gateway Area of the Willard Munger Trail. This is a rail line turned multi-use trail with lots of room to roam on-leash.

    #2 City Center


    City Center in Stillwater is the place all the cool, sophisticated dogs go to relax. The neighborhood is home to three restaurants featuring patio space for dogs. Order at the window at Leo’s Grill and Malt Shop, or enjoy pub classics at the historic Freight House, established in 1883. Luna Rossa Trattoria rounds out the trio with Italian food and water bowls on the deck. If you’re looking for more of an event, Northern Vineyards Winery allows dogs on the deck and in the tasting room, so there’s no reason not to visit!

    #3 75th Street/Manning Avenue

    75th Street and Manning Avenue come together to form a residential neighborhood on the west side of Stillwater. McKusick Park, right off of McKusick Lake, is a small park that’s a great neighborhood stop. Some days you don’t have time to hit a bigger park, and McKusick is perfect for leashing up and walking laps to burn off some energy. Park Land is another neighborhood stop that is convenient, but small. Stillwater Dog Park is the place to be in the neighborhood, though. Fenced and off-leash ready, Stillwater Dog Park is a place to go to run, fetch, and play with other dogs.

    #4 Manning Avenue/60th Street

    The Manning Avenue and 60th Street neighborhood is the place to go if your dog loves water. Each of the three parks in the area features a pond for wading, fetching, and playing. Lily Lake Park is the largest of the three, and bordered Lily Lake. This multi-use space is leashed-only unless your dog is currently swimming. Nightingale Park ends where Brewer’s Pond begins, and features waterside benches. Sunrise Park is the only one to completely enclose the water feature. It has a small pond in the south-western corner of the park. It’s also leashed-only with the exception of swimming.
