- We'll Let The Dogs Out!
Dog owners, and just dog lovers, come join us at the airport dog park to let our 4 legged friends run and play! The park has large open spaces and walking paths, and it backs up to the north side of MSP so we also get to watch the planes either take off or land. Note that there isn't any water or trash removal so you need to bring what you need and take away anything you picked up! This is an off leash park and it's free/open to the public with plenty of parking in the MAC lot. Right now the forecast for Sunday looks good!
