Dog Walking in Winona

The city of Winona is one of the most beautiful cities you and your pup will see. Lying on the southern side of the Mississippi River, Winona is in bluff country, with multiple bluffs along the river, including the famous one known as Sugar Loaf. Whether you're looking for in-land parks or some water activities, Fido can be included in almost everyone in the city.

Residents and guests love to flock to Prairie Island, a small island off the shore of the city in the Mississippi River, which hosts Winona Park. The park is dog-friendly and has a long shoreline along the river with a boat launch, fishing docks, and swimming spots. Dogs can enjoy the open spaces or the natural trails that travel along the island, with additional amenities like dog-friendly camping sides, water fountains, clean-up stations, and access to Kiwanis Pavilion.

Bluffside Park takes a more in-land approach to parks, offering a thick woodsy terrain to park goers with scenic overlooks, hiking trails, and wildlife scenery. Dogs are not required to be on a leash in this park, but you'll have to remember to bring water and clean-up bags.

With two veterinarians and multiple other places to get some energy out with Fido, you'll soon find that Winona is the perfect place for you and your puppy companion.
