This new park will feature 11.0 acres of an off-leash dog park with designated small breed and all breed areas, seating in the off-leash areas, lighted unpaved trails in the off-leash area and a parking lot. A future playground is planned. It is located at 4321 65th Street and is expected to open spring 2019.
A pass will be required for each dog to use the new off-leash dog park and will require an annual renewal. Dog park passes will be available to purchase beginning May 1, 2019, in-person at the Inver Grove Heights Parks & Recreation Office, 8055 Barbara Avenue East, Inver Grove Heights, 55077 or online at: www.invergroveheights.org/dogpark. These passes will also be available to purchase the day of the Grand Opening event. The passes will be effective June 11, 2019.
Dogs will also be required to have up to date rabies vaccinations at the time of purchase for the dog park pass. A valid certificate, that is good for another year from the date of purchase, will be required.
The City will host a Rabies Vaccination Clinic in partnership with Inver Grove Heights Animal Hospital and provide the vaccines at a reduced rate of $15. This clinic will be held in conjunction with the Grand Opening of the City’s first off-leash dog park on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 from 5-7 p.m. at the new Heritage Village Park, 4321 65th Street, Inver Grove Heights, 55077.
