Lowertown dog park relocated for ballpark construction

SAINT PAUL – The City of Saint Paul announced today that the Lowertown Dog Park will be relocated east of Broadway Street between Sixth and Seventh streets during the construction of the Lowertown Ballpark. The move is expected to take place on September 13 and last through the spring of 2015.

The City of Saint Paul will lease the land from the Minnesota Department of Transportation, maintain the off-leash dog park during construction, and restore it to its original condition after completion of the new dog park that will be a part of the Lowertown Ballpark. The Lowertown Ballpark Design and Construction Committee is playing a critical role in developing the new dog park.

“Many of the people who love Lowertown also love being able to take their dogs to the dog park that is next to the site of the new ballpark,” said Saint Paul Parks and Recreation Director Mike Hahm. “We are happy that the Minnesota Department of Transportation is able to work with us to make sure that these people will continue to have a place to walk and exercise their dogs in Lowertown during the construction of the ballpark.”

In addition to the relocated Lowertown Dog Park, local residents can also use the nearby Arlington-Arkwright and High Bridge off-leash dog parks and Mears Park and Wacouta Commons on-leash parks.

Thousands of people visit Saint Paul’s dog parks each month.
