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:

Rules & Policies


  • Dogs must wear an OLA collar.
  • 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 and children age 6 to 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.

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.

Off-Leash Area Permits & Collars


OLA permits with collars cost $25 for residents and $50 for non-residents. Discounts are given for multiple dogs. Purchase an on off-leash collar permit.
