Pets in public spaces
According to the city code (701.09) “No owner of any animal shall permit such animal to run or move at large at any time within the city.” This includes city parks, sidewalks and trails. 

Please be considerate of others. Do not let your dogs and cats run free. All dogs should be on a leash at all times when on public property The city gets many complaints, particularly about loose dogs in Freeman Park. Your dog is friendly, but other dogs might not care for them and can put the dogs and the owners at risk. A dog park is located where your dog can run off-leash is located at nearby Lake Minnewashta Regional Park .

If you see an unleashed pet, please call animal control at 9-1-1 to report the incident.
