The Woodview Open Space Off-Leash Dog Area is located in the city of Roseville, Minnesota. This dog park has two separate sections. It is comprised of one rectangular enclosure, which is fully fenced and a five-acre stretch of natural parkland which is not fenced.
There is a parking lot nearby the entrance to the fenced-in area. All children under 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult while in the off-leash areas and have a good understanding of how to behave around dogs. No running, shouting, or food is permitted.
The smaller enclosure is easily accessible for pet owners with mobility problems. It has a double gated staging area and is surrounded by tall trees which make it very shady on sunny days. There are also trees inside the off-leash area and it is surfaced with dirt and bark chippings.
There is no specific small dog section at the Woodview Open Space Off-Leash Dog Area, but there are designated hours for exercising only small dogs under thirty pounds at various times four days of the week. Large breed service dogs are still permitted entry to the fenced enclosure during small dog hours.
The large off-leash area is not enclosed with fencing. It is open countryside with grassy fields, trails, and some wooded areas. Pet owners must have good voice control over their dog at all times and make sure they keep their pet in constant visual contact.
Dogs should only be unleashed when inside the designated off-leash area. All dogs using the facility must be licensed with the Ramsey County local authorities and have all their vaccinations up to date. It is also advisable to ensure parasite treatment for ticks and fleas is current.
Pet owners are obliged to supply their own poop bags and must remove all fecal matter produced by their dogs. Containers are provided for disposing of used poop bags. There is no water supply in either part of the park. It is recommended that owners take bottled water and a drinking bowl for their dog particularly during hot weather.
