Dog Parks

Fargo-Moorhead offers plenty of dog park options for your dog to exercise, run freely and socialize with other dogs. Find the park where you’ll eventually become a regular or try them all. We’ll leave it to you and your dog to decided what park is your favorite.

Dog Walking in Island Park

Dog park etiquette:

  • Dogs must wear a collar, carry ID tags, be properly licensed, vaccinated and in healthy condition.
  • Keep a close eye on your dog at all times.
  • Owners must clean up after their dogs and fill any holes left by their pets.
  • Dogs should be leashed before entering and prior to leaving the park.
  • Bring water and a bowl to keep your dog hydrated. Or play North Dakota nice and bring a communal water bowl for the park.
