Locke County Park
Fridley is home to the first dog park in Anoka County. The one
and one-half acre fenced area is located inside Locke County
Park, and is operated by the Anoka County Parks and Recreation
A dog park is a place where dogs can
socialize and run off-leash in a safe, secure environment. Dog
parks are becoming an increasingly popular opportunity for
people and dogs to relax, exercise, and socialize. It is a great
bonding experience for pets and their owners. Also, by providing
socialization and exercise opportunities, dogs are less likely
to be aggressive and create a nuisance by barking excessively or
destroying property. Fridley will benefit in other ways, such as
promoting responsible pet ownership and providing elderly and
disabled owners with an accessible place to exercise their
