The Minneapolis Park Board will host a community conversation on a proposal for a dog park on Thursday, July 22,, from 7:00pm-8:30pm at the Martin Luther King Park Rec Center, 4055 Nicollet Avenue South in Minneapolis.
The Park Board currently has installed dog parks in 4 of its 6 park districts. One area not served by a dog park is south central and southwest Minneapolis.
Neighbors from Kingfield and Bryant neighborhoods have organized to request support from the Park Board for a dog park location in MLK Park. Three potential locations have been proposed: 1) The NE corner of the park (behind the tennis bubble and next to the pedestrian bridge over I-35W); 2) The SW corner of the park (along the soundwall near 42nd Street); 3) The NW corner of the park (at the corner of Nicollet and 40th Street).
