Photo of dogs at Meeker Island Dog ParkThe Meeker Island Dog Park is located adjacent to Meeker Island Historic Lock and Dam site, the site of the first and northernmost lock and dam on the Mississippi. The site is located just west of the intersection of Eustis Street and N Mississippi River Blvd near the border of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. The park is located along the river at the bottom of the bluff and can be accessed from the entrance along the Mississippi River Blvd trail. It features a dog run and a dog beach. There is no fence surrounding the park, which is bordered by the Mississippi River and the steep river bluffs.

Please note, Meeker Island Dog Park may close in the event of high waters on the Mississippi River. Please see the Closures and Special Notices page for updates.
