Dog Areas in Sunfish Lake

A little more than 500 people call the city of Sunfish Lake in Dakota County, Minnesota their home. It's an area known for preserving its pristine surroundings, and there is no shortage of beautiful outdoor space to explore in town. Sunfish Lake is a private community, but it maintains strong ties to nearby Twin Cities, so the amenities of a big city are never far away. The town sits on 1.7 square acres of land, and except for four churches in Sunfish Lake, the rest of the area is zoned single-family residential. Because there's no commercial development in town, you'll have to travel outside of the city limits for shopping, dining, and certain recreational facilities.

In just ten minutes, you and your dog can drive to the Minnehaha Dog Park in southeastern Minneapolis. The dog park is located in the Minnehaha neighborhood, and it requires a membership to join. This massive off-leash park has all sorts of trails to trek, as well as bodies of water where your pet can take a dip. Be sure to bring doggy bags, drinking water, and a towel to dry your pooch off at the end of your visit. You and your dog are going to love getting to know all of the dog-friendly spots around Sunfish Lake!
