Let your pup unleash their energy and playfulness at Mineral Point Unleashed! The only dog park in the charming little town of Mineral Point, this 1.5-acre site offers a safe, fenced-in environment for the community's canines to romp unfettered.
Mineral Point Unleashed was opened after a group of dog lovers went to work on creating an off-leash dog park. The plot of land it sits on was generously donated by the city and the co-op next door, and now four-legged residents have a grassy space where they can run and socialize without the restraints of a leash.
The dog park is free to use and divided into two areas so that pups can play with other doggos their own size. There are no restrooms for people, but you'll find benches where you can sit and chat with your fellow dog parents while your pooch does their thing. Be sure not to get too distracted—while visitors say the dogs who come here are friendly, you'll still need to keep an eye on Fido!
If your pupper makes a mess, grab a mutt mitt from one of the dispensers near the entrance. Drinking water is not provided though, so you'll have to bring your own—and maybe carry some extra to share, too! In addition to being a play area for our furry friends, Mineral Point Unleashed is also a great spot to watch the beautiful Wisconsin sunset. After your pooch has run off their energy, stay a while to catch the sun disappear behind the Driftless hills before you head home.
Note that there is no shade at the dog park, so you may want to drop by early in the morning or late in the afternoon on hot and sunny days. Despite its minimal amenities and small size, the site is well-maintained, according to visitors. Fido will surely enjoy running around Mineral Point Unleashed!
