Woodbury is home to two off-leash dog parks.

The dog days of summer are here, and so is the time to let your pup run around and socialize with furry friends. Before heading to the dog park, ensure that you have a valid dog license and that your pup is up to date on vaccines.

Andy’s Bark Park

Named after Andy, the Woodbury Police Department’s first K9 officerAndy’s Bark Park welcomes dogs and their owners to run around and engage with other pups in the 70-acre park. The park isn’t completely fenced in, so be sure to keep a close eye on your pup. And after socializing with other dogs, take a hike on the walking trails or have a picnic in the shelter area. The park also includes a pet watering and waste disposal stations, plus a portable restroom.

Andy’s Bark Park is open from dawn to dusk, and all dogs over the age of six months must have a current City of Woodbury dog license to use the park. 11664 Dale Road, Woodbury

Battle Creek Dog Park

Situated on the outskirts of Woodbury, Battle Creek Dog Park is a fully fenced 35-acre park complete with walking and hiking trails, play areas and more. Bring friends and meet at the community gathering area or play fetch in the wooded and prairie areas. And though there are several ponds and natural swamp areas, they’re often full of algae and mud—so don’t let Fido take a swim.

Battle Creek Dog Park is open 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset. All dogs must be licensed and vaccinated. 2350 Upper Afton Road, Maplewood
