Dakota Park is a dog park in St. Louis Park with family-friendly amenities that include a playground, lighted sports fields, and space to picnic.  In the winter there is also a sledding hill. There is off-street parking available at this park. 

7 Ideas for Family Fun at Dakota Park:

  1. Invite your family dog. The park has an off-leash dog park. However, you will need to apply for a permit and pay the annual fee to use the park. Find more information here.
  2. Bring a playground ball to play kickball on the baseball diamond.
  3. Go for a stroll.  This park’s paved trails would be a good place to walk with a stroller or a young child learning to bike.
  4. Pack a picnic.  The park has both a shelter and picnic tables.  There is also plenty of green space for spreading a blanket.
  5. Climb the play structure. The playground is a good size and offers seating for parents.
  6. Bike the Cedar Lake Trail. Because this park offers a parking lot, it’s a good place to begin and end a bike ride.
  7. Sled in the winter.
