St. Paul City Council approves turning vacant land into dog park

By order of the St. Paul City Council, vacant city land in the southeast corner of Ayd Mill Road and Hamline Avenue will hereby be used as a dog park.

On Wednesday, the city council approved a three-year lease agreement with the Union Park District Council for an off-leash dog area. The district council will pay $1 per year for access to the bottle-cap shaped property, which is under the control of St. Paul Public Works.

The district council will also be responsible for general liability insurance, poop receptacles, fencing, signage and other amenities.

The city of St. Paul currently maintains four official off-leash dog parks at Arlington/Arkwright, beneath the High Bridge, Meeker Island and in Lowertown near CHS Field.
