Off-Leash Areas

The off-leash areas (OLA) are a great place to let your dog run off some of his or her energy and socialize with other dogs. The City of Edina has two off-leash areas:

Off-Leash Area (OLA)
Open 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. 
Van Valkenburg Park
4935 Lincoln Drive
Edina, MN 55436

Strachauer Park Hockey Rink (Seasonal OLA Site)
Open 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily April through October
6200 Beard Ave.
Edina, MN 55410

Dogs must wear an OLA collar, which can be purchased at Edina City Hall, 4801 W. 50th St. or online. Dogs must be properly vaccinated and must be leashed when entering and exiting the OLA. No glass containers, smoking, female dogs in season, unauthorized motorized equipment or vehicles, bicycles or individual dogs known to be aggressive are allowed. Children under age 6 are not allowed within the OLA; children under 12 must be closely supervised by an adult. Dog owners are responsible for damage and injuries inflicted by their dogs and must properly clean up after them. Other rules are listed on signs within the park.

OLA permits with collars cost $25 for residents and $50 for non-residents. Discounts are given for multiple dogs. Click here to purchase on off-leash collar.

City ordinance also requires you to carry a device or equipment to clean up after your pet. At a minimum, you must carry at least two bags for this purpose.
