Cleary Lake Dog Park

Located between Lakeville and Prior Lake, in Cleary Lake Regional Park—about 15 minutes southwest of Puppy Play and Stay. Cleary Lake Dog Park is a 28-acre fenced in, off-leash dog park in the outskirts of Prior Lake. It is heavily forested, with lots of trees/brush for your dog to sniff and explore. The trees also offer shade when you’re walking around the trails with your pup. The trails run throughout the center of the park and around the outside, creating plenty of new paths for your dog to explore. Towards the center of the park there is also a fenced in pond where the dogs can swim and cool off!

Would I Recommend?

Yes! This is my favorite dog park I’ve ever visited. It is very well manicured and is worth the pass fees. The trails are dry and weren’t muddy. They provide clean water, and dog waste bags. There is a bathroom for humans that is larger than a porta potty. The pond was clear; however, it is early in the year so I’m unsure of how it gets later in the summer. If this park is out of the way for you, I still stay it is worth the drive! This is an easy to get to dog park if you live in Prior Lake, Lakeville, Burnsville, or Savage Area!

What to Keep in Mind with Dog Parks

Keep in mind with dog parks, it may be a different experience each time. When we visited, there were dogs of all sizes. The dogs that were there were friendly, but the behavior of other people’s dogs is so unpredictable. When visiting any dog park, be sure to always keep a close eye on your dog and other dogs. Including body language or any queues that may let you know it’s time to create some distance.
