City of Savage Dog Park (Off-Leash)
The City of Shakopee currently does not have an off-leash dog park option. However they are in the process of constructing one! The City of Shakopee's website states they are currently building an off-leash dog park area in the Southbridge Community Park area. It is scheduled to be open in the Spring of 2015.
Since Shakopee does not have one yet, Savage would be one of the closest ones. This dog park is provided by the City of Savage for dog owners. It consists of 2 acres of land that is fenced in. There is no charge to use this park, however they require any patron to have their dog licensed by the City. A pet waste station is provided, however no water facilities are available. While this dog park does not have many frills, it can be a nice place for your dog to get some exercise. Due to the smaller quarters, it also allows you to stand in one spot and still keep an eye on your dog if they like to run.
