Dog Park now open in Grand Marais

Gunflint Horse Arena, Grand Marais

The new dog park located at the Gunflint Horse Arena is now open. The park provides a fenced in space that allows well behaved dogs to be off leash safe from traffic, predators, and traps, while socializing with other dogs. The dog park is located near the corner of the "old" Gunflint Trail and the "new" Gunflint Trail, just north of the Recycling Center in Grand Marais. Open “dog parties” are held every Wednesday afternoons from 3:30 to 5:30 and Sunday afternoons from 3 until 5.  More information about the Gunflint Dog Park is available online at godognorthshore.org.
