Doggin’ Minneapolis: Where To Hike With Your Dog When In The Mini Apple
By Doug Gelbert
Loring Park at 1382 Willow Street is named for Charles Loring, the â€œFather of the Minneapolis Park System.â€ Loring hired Frederick Law Olmsted to bring a world- class park system to rapidly growing Minneapolis in 1883 and the first 30 acres of this park were purchased. A series of bike and walking paths wind around a lake and gardens; across the Whitney Bridge is the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.
For a more extended hike with your dog try Fort Snelling State Park, 10 minutes to the southeast of Minneapolis.
